Harry Potter wears them, he is pretty cool.
The kid from Stuart Little wears them doesn't he?
The kid from Witches wears them, that movie with Angelica Housten with the mouse.

6yo may need glasses - he's very distressed
What got me through wearing glasses (I've been wearing them since I was 3) is what my mum always told me:
It doesn't matter if you wear glasses or not, cause when your a grown up, almost everyone has them...
Your just lucky you get them first!

Age 6 is a big friend making time and kids can be cruel at very young ages. Concerns over anything that makes them stand out are very normal. Also, it would be a concern that it might impede his ability to be physically active without breaking or losing the glasses. Its good to know that he wont need to wear them 24/7. There is nothing wrong with hoping your childs eyes will get better but I am sure you will continue to be supportive and positive if he doesnt.
All the best to ur little man and remind him that harry potter is awesome!

He hasn't watched harry potter but does have a board game about it so will definitely point that out, thanks guys for that idea. I saw some Star Wars glasses online at Specsavers which he thought might be cool too.

My 6 year really wants glasses and she (so far) doesn't need them! She thinks they're awesome and cool and is so jealous of me and all her spec wearing family and friends.
Soooooo different to when I was young and wearing glasses!

My daughter has wanted glasses from about 6 but has her eyes tested every year and they are fine. She recently saw the Star Wars ones as well and loves them.
Is he too young to watch the first harry potter movie? What about Stuart Little, with the mouse?

I'll check out the Harry Potter movie but he has seen Stuart Little but may be a good time to watch it again.
MKF: it is very different to when I was young too - I got my glasses in yr 9 I think and still got picked on and I only had to use them to read the whiteboards. I do worry that will happen to him but am in no way letting him in on that, keeping that one to myself!

The first one might be ok for him, maybe the second. The third might be a bit much and from 4 onwards they get a bit dark. My 9 year old has read them all and seen all the movies, but they are bit much for other kids.

Sorry you went through that, it's tough isn't it.
He has a mate with glasses at school and a few girls in his class have glasses and there have been no issues with them so fingers crossed that doesn't happen like it used to.
