We have yet to be able to teach Sam not to push his glasses up by putting his fingers on the lenses. The result is that they are pretty much always spotty, even 5 minutes after I’ve cleaned them. Last night, he pushed on them right after eating an ice cream sandwich. Result= two chocolate fingerprints right in the middle of the lenses.
I’ve also noticed that the supposedly scratch resistant lenses already have scratches in them. My glasses do, too, and they have the uber expensive, all the bells and whistles type lenses in them. They had a scratch within two months of me getting them. That’s about how long Sam’s had his now, too, and they have a couple of little scratches on them.
We’ve had our first trip to have Sam’s glasses adjusted, too. My husband was concerned they wouldn’t be able to straighten them and we’d have to buy another pair, but there is a reason that kids’ glasses are made out of titanium.
He’s been ordering books for the kids lately, too, and quite by coincidence ordered an Arthur book that is about D.W. wanting to get glasses, too, so she can be like her big brother. It hadn’t occurred to me before to look for books were someone where glasses, but I thought that as he gets older Sam might enjoy reading books were the kid has glasses, too. The Harry Potter books come to mind, but those will obviously be quite a few years down the road. Anyone run across books for toddlers that feature a character with glasses?
