Two of a kind: children’s eyeglasses

Mar 27, 2018

When buying children’s glasses, it pays to have a backup!

In the rough and tumble that is school (playgrounds, fields, cafeterias, courts), a scratch, crack, or break on your children’s eyewear could happen in the blink of an eye.

Alternatively, if your child leaves one pair of eyeglasses at school, you can rest assured they have a spare pair at home.

Aware of the importance of a second pair of eyeglasses, we developed our Kool Kids programme to provide you with a backup option for your child with a great deal.

Kool Kids 2-for-1 frame options

  • Choose a Lacoste brand frame including tough scratch resistant Stock Single Vision lenses with UV protection for $249 and receive a second pair FREE when choosing from the Owlet range of frames.

Alternatively, you can also upgrade your second pair to Lacoste for $129.

  • Nike or Flexon brand frames are priced at $299 for the package, including a second pair of Owlet for FREE.

Or upgrade your second pair to Nike or Flexon for $149.

No matter which option you choose, you can rest easy knowing you’re keeping your kids in glasses (and in style) with our Kool Kids programme!

But if your child’s heart is set on playing sports, we do have a sturdier, more robust alternative.
