Robust glasses for toddler?

DD (nearly 3) wears glasses for long sightedness and squint. She has no problem actually wearing the glasses, in fact she seems to like them or appreciate that she can see better in them. However they are constantly breaking (usually one of the arms snaps off) and we have to go back for a replacement pair, which always takes 2-3 weeks at least. We use Boots Opticians who stock the Blitz Kidz range.

Can anyone recommend a more robust range of toddler glasses?

Try mirror flex....they are fairly indestructible.

At Specsavers you get two pairs free so one to wear and one spare.

Miraflex are good. Optician can order them.in

I dislike miraflex because they don't stay on the bridge properly. Prefer tomato glasses or julbo. All depends on your little one's face.

The spec savers plastic ones with no nose rests seem pretty durable. My four year old has had no issues since he has had his and I get adult ones of same style which get abused a fair amount.
