Children’s Eyewear

Ascension Optical in Gonzales proudly offers an extensive selection of high-quality, durable, and fun eyewear options designed specifically for children of all ages. Our collection caters to the unique needs and preferences of our young patients, ensuring both comfort and style.

We carry a wide variety of popular brands for children’s eyeglass frames. Our diverse assortment includes styles and colors to match your child’s individual taste and personality. To guarantee the best vision and fit for your child, consider several key features when selecting their eyeglasses:


The best lens types for children’s eyeglasses should be lightweight, durable, and impact-resistant to ensure comfort, safety, and longevity.

  • Polycarbonate lenses are a top choice for children’s eyeglasses due to their lightweight nature and impressive durability. They are up to 10 times more impact-resistant than standard plastic lenses, making them ideal for active children who may be prone to accidents or rough play. Polycarbonate lenses also provide 100% UV protection, safeguarding your child’s eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.
  • Trivex lenses are another excellent option for children’s eyewear. Like polycarbonate lenses, Trivex lenses are lightweight, highly durable, and impact-resistant. They offer excellent optical clarity and provide 100% UV protection. Trivex lenses may be slightly thicker than polycarbonate lenses, but they are more resistant to scratches, making them a good choice for children who may not handle their glasses with the utmost care.

Ultimately, the choice between the two may depend on factors such as budget, specific visual needs, and personal preferences.

Proper bridge fit

A well-fitting bridge is crucial for children’s eyeglasses. The bridge should rest comfortably on your child’s nose without slipping or pinching. Opt for glasses with adjustable nose pads or flexible bridges to guarantee a secure fit. Our skilled opticians will work closely with your child to ensure their glasses have the proper bridge fit for optimal comfort.

Temple style

The temple style plays a significant role in the comfort and fit of children’s eyeglasses. Ill-fitting temples that are too long or too short can lead to glasses slipping off or feeling uncomfortable. Choose glasses with temples that match your child’s head size and shape. Wraparound temple styles can be particularly beneficial for young children, as they help keep the eyeglasses securely in place.

Spring hinges

Spring hinges are another valuable feature to look for in children’s eyeglasses. These flexible hinges allow the temples to bend, making the glasses more comfortable and less prone to breakage.

Children’s sunglasses

In addition to our selection of eyeglasses, Ascension Optical also offers a diverse range of children’s sunglasses. Just like adults, babies and children require proper eye protection from harmful UV rays to maintain good eye health. Our sunglasses are specifically designed with this critical aspect in mind. Encourage your child to wear quality sunglasses while outdoors to safeguard their eyes from potential damage.
