Does Your Child Need Glasses?

11 easy-to-miss signs your child might need glasses. Plus, the cutest frames for kids.

Here’s the thing about kids and eyesight: They don’t exactly know when they can’t see as well as they should. And while it’s recommended for kids to see an eye doctor annually (yeah news to us too!), many parents don’t book that appointment until they sense a problem. And speaking of, here are a few signs that your kid might need glasses.

  • Closing or covering one eye
  • Tilting the head
  • Excessive tearing
  • Squinting
  • Repeated eye rubbing
  • Sitting too close to the TV
  • A drop in school performance
  • Clumsiness (tripping and bumping into things)
  • Holding books too close to the face
  • Frequent headaches, nausea, or dizziness
  • Losing their place while reading
