Buying Kids' Glasses for Back-to-School

Amanda Schafer

Through the hustle and bustle of back-to-school shopping, kids’ glasses may be overlooked on that long list of things to buy. However, if there’s a best time to buy eyeglasses and sunglasses, it’s the months before returning to school. Not only are there the best deals, but your kids should be looking and seeing their best in the classroom and on the playground. So it’s not a question of whether to buy new glasses or not, it’s just figuring out when and where.

Back-to-School Kids Glasses

Where to Get the Best Back-to-School Deals

When it comes to price, it’s always better to buy glasses online vs. in the store. The cost of custom lenses and different enhancements and coatings can really add up if you’re not careful. According to Consumer Reports, people paid over $200 on average for glasses at the optical store versus under $100 online. There is also a much wider selection online, and some retailers even have their own in-house brands so your kids won’t end up with the same looks as the rest of their classmates! Our Picklez and Picklez Flex collections are popular amongst parents and kids for being comfortable, durable, and affordable—starting around just $40. Since kids can be prone to losing or damaging their glasses, we even have a 365-Day Kid-Proof Warranty that allows you to return or replace them within one year!

When to Get the Best Back-to-School Discounts

Even though kids don’t want to think about going back to school in July, that’s actually when all the retailers start their sales. The best online back-to-school sales on glasses for kids and teens rev up between July and August. You can save 40% on all of our eyeglasses and sunglasses from now until August 13th and 50% off blue light and transition lenses until August 8th at DiscountGlasses.com.
