Why do little kids need glasses?

In brief: To see better

Kids can have visual defects that require eyeglass correction.
If they are hyperopic they might have eyes out of alignment due to this. If very myopic, they might need them simply to see the world. In both cases the glasses improve vision and eye position and function. This can be sorted out by a pediatric ophthalmologist.

In addition, some children need glasses in order for their visual system to develop properly.
