Characters with Glasses

It always amazes me with how many children are in glasses, how few characters are in glasses and how, I feel, glasses on kids are under-represented in books and magazines.  I think children in glasses are beautiful and would love to have them see that message from the media.  Thankfully, more companies are getting on board!  I LOVE the fact that the American Girl Dolls company now has beautiful girls and dolls included in their magazines.  I have also noticed that more magazines are starting to feature children with glasses – one of my parenting magazines had 8 kids with glasses in their feature stories and one was even a full page!  This weekend, we met the first (and probably only) Disney Character that wears glasses!  Now if only I could get one of the princess to wear them too!!!

  1. Eyeglasses Prescription: In order to ensure you get the best eyeglasses that allow you to improve your sight, it is essential that get your eyes tested by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist to get the latest prescription. Most online retailers of eyeglasses require that customers provide a prescription that is no more than a year old. An optometrist will not only provide you with a prescription, but will also make sure there are no serious health problems with your eyes.
