Around the age 12 or 13 (7th or 8th grade for most), kids commonly become more aware of their appearance. You may notice your child becoming more choosy about his or her clothes (the brands, the fit, the styles) or take more care with grooming.

For the athletic teen, the key to wearing (not hiding or forgetting) glasses may be how well they fit and the durability of the frame. For the teen with an active social calendar, it may be more important that the frames are a good match for their style – dressy, casual, or …whatever the trend is these days.
If your teen is new to wearing glasses, it’s important to spend the time necessary to get them to fully commit. You’ll find some great tips here in this article.
