Knowing how few choices there are for frames for little kids — and that’s with us having a great children’s eye glasses store with better selection than most places — I can only imagine how much more difficult it must be to find good frames if your child has Down syndrome. Children with Down syndrome have different facial features, including smaller noses, wider faces, and a shorter depth from the eyes to the ears. This leads to frames that just don’t fit their faces well at all. Enter Maria Dellapina who is an optician and who has a daughter with Down syndrome. She created Erin’s World frames specifically designed to fit children with Down syndrome. They range in size from 38 to 43, with new models planned for babies and young children. While we don’t need these frames for Zoe, I’m very glad that someone has developed frames to fit the need.
