Access to proper vision corrective treatments has been cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an important factor in alleviating visual impairment among children and adults. But some children—who have prescription glasses—often leave them at home due to fear of getting bullied in school.
“Young children are very sensitive,” said Dr. Joy Go, AVP for Ideal Vision Center Marketing. “Some urban children are least likely to wear their prescription glasses in school primarily because they are more concerned about being teased by their classmates.”
Many studies claim that wearing prescription eyewear has an impact on how children are perceived by their peers. According to the American Psychological Association, children ages five to nine see children without glasses as better looking compared to those wearing glasses.
“On our part, we want to make any difference we can make—this starts with design,” Dr. Go emphasized. “We want their (children) glasses to be a source of self-confidence and not shame.”

Dr. Go concluded: “Healthy eyesight is crucial for your child’s learning progress. Once you choose the better eyewear that fits your child, you’ll not only change how other people look at them, but also you could help reshape how they think about themselves.”
