Eyeglasses For Your Children

iStock_000020074017XSmall-270x300According to Parenting.com, approximately one in twenty preschoolers wear eyeglasses. This is an important statistic to consider if you haven’t taken your child to get his or her eyes checked. If you find out your little bundle of joy needs corrective lenses, here’s how to choose the best frames:

1. Choose eyeglasses that flatter your child’s face. Most children have round faces which means a squarish style will look best. You should also choose smaller frames.

2. Pick frames that are flexible for your child. We know bright, colorful, plastic frames are all the rage for 2013 but they can be brittle and break easily. Metal frames are easier to adjust and you should look for eyeglasses with titanium hinges that will bend easily with your children’s movements.

3. Pick frames that are impact-resistant such as polycarbonate lenses. We all remember gym class, make sure your child’s eyeglasses will stand the “ball in the face” test. Another way to protect your child’s lenses is to add an antireflective coating.

The best way to choose eyeglasses for your children is to include them in the process. Personally, my daughter needed to start wearing eyeglasses when she was six years old. I was very worried that she wouldn’t want to wear eyeglasses, but, surprisingly, she was very excited to purchase her new frames! She started a trend in her school and all the kids begged their parents to purchase frames, even if they didn’t need a prescription!

If you’re on the market for new eyeglasses for your children, we hope you’ll consider 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore. You’re welcome to bring your little one into any of our locations and try on as many pairs as you like. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Exercises To Improve Your Eyesight

Exercises To Improve Your EyesightStimulate your eye muscles:

This exercise is simple, but must be done every morning. On waking up, wash your face with water (preferably cool or a little cold water). Then fill your mouth with water, close your eyes and splash cold water onto your eyes.

This exercise helps stimulate the muscles of the eyes, due to the pressure exerted by the water filled in your mouth. The splash of cold water on your face helps enliven the nerve endings and rejuvenates the skin.

Wash your eyes

In the morning strain the liquid and wash your eyes with it twice a day. This eyewash helps relax and relieve stress in the eyes.

Massage over worked eyes:

This is a great exercise for people who work for long hours in front of computers. Hold your eyebrows between your thumb and index finger, in such a way that the thumb is above the eyebrow and index finger below. Now, gently press and straighten your eyebrows, exerting gentle pressure on all the points. Then, take your thumb and gently roll it around your eye ball, i.e. along your eye socket. Do this exercise every three to four hours to improve the circulation around your eyes.  This exercise improves circulation around the eyes helping them recover from the fatigue of constantly looking at a computer screen.

Exercise the muscles around your eyes

This exercise is done to stimulate the muscles around your eyeballs (that are present within the eye socket). Rotate your eyeballs, first to the right and left, then upwards and downwards. Do this in the clockwise and anti-clockwise direction for about three to four repetitions.

Human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day.

You have only a pair of eyes, so take care of your eyes. It is always a good idea to consult with your eye doctor to discuss your options.

Exercises Can Smarten Up Your Eyesight

Eye-ExercisesYou don’t need spectacles, lenses, even surgery. Easy-peasy exercises done daily can smarten up your eyesight, says a vision trainer.

Muscles need exercise

Constant exposure to pollution, harsh lights from tele vision and computer usage, poor sleeping and eating habits all come together to affect the health of our eyes.

Vision yoga exercises involve movements that massage the eye ball, work out muscles that control eye movement and provide relief to the overworked organ.

For your eyes only

Sun Swinging
