Eyewear, Glasses & Frames for Your Child
Does your child need glasses? There are many reasons why children may need glasses to see clearly or maintain normal ocular alignment, including:
- Myopia (nearsightedness): Objects in the distance appear blurry
- Hyperopia (farsightedness): Objects up close appear blurry
- Astigmatism: Both near and far objects appear blurry, along with other vision issues.
- Strabismus: The eyes do not align when focusing on an object.
Children’s frames require specialized fitting with attention to various details unique to children. Your child will receive instructions as to the correct way to put on and take off their glasses, as well as proper care of their glasses. We provide free adjustments and cleaning at any time.
We offer one of the largest children’s frame selections in the area. Some of the designer frames we carry include:
- Erin’s world - specs4us.com
- Hello Kitty
- Liberty sport - Rec spec
- Life is Good
- Life Italia

We also offer a warranty program for one year up to 3 replacements on lenses and frames*.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I get my children’s glasses from a pediatric optician near me?
Pediatric eyewear is designed specifically for the unique needs of children. A pediatric eye specialist can measure your child’s face and find frames that fit properly, as well as provide lenses that will provide enhanced vision clarity. Additionally, pediatric opticians are able to recommend treatments for vision development and other eye conditions that are common in children.
Do you provide any optical services for adults?
Yes! Because we provide services to adults for correcting strabismus and diplopia, we also have adult frames to ensure the appropriate prism lenses are given to correct double vision. We strive to provide the best care possible for our adult patients.
Does your optical shop accept insurance?
Yes! Pediatric Ophthalmology of Erie Optical participates with the following vision insurances for eyeglasses:
- NVA (exceptions apply)
- Envolve (UPMC for You)
- PA Medical Assistance
- Univera Vison
Please keep in mind that other vision insurances may have out of network benefits, so please give us a try. Please call your vision insurance prior to your appointment to see if you have out of network benefits available. If you need assistance, no problem – we can call when you arrive at your appointment. You are also invited to use your health savings accounts if you have these benefits.
We also have a $59.00 package deal that is great for a second pair!
