Buying children's glasses: Lens materials

The lens material is one of the most important considerations in buying children's glasses.  The most common materials are:  plastic, high index plastic, polycarbonate and glass.  Glass is the heaviest but scratches the least; however, it shatters into very small pieces if broken.  Therefore, it is not very safe and not prescribed much.  Plastic is common, relatively thin and relatively safe.  High index plastic is the thinner and lighter version of regular plastic and is also used often.  Polycarbonate is a material that is also thinner and lighter and is the most impact resistant material available.  It is used frequently in safety items such as helmets.
For those safety reasons, polycarbonate is the lens material of choice for kids' glasses. They are difficult (but not impossible) to break and if they do break, the pieces tend to be bigger and fall away from the eyes.  Because of kids' active lifestlyles and liability reasons, most offices will prescribe only polycarbonate for kids.

Buying children's glasses: Frame materials

When buying children's glasses, one of the things to consider is the frame material.  Generally, plastic frames are preferred over metal for younger children.  The reason for this is that metal tends to bend more easily and gets out of shape; the nosepads in the middle of the frame also can fall off.  If metal is chosen, the "flex" frame is better.  Metal frames frequently come with a "cable" temple that wrap around the ears so that they stay in place more snugly.
For older children, metal or plastic will work.  The nosepads may actually help to keep the frames up higher on kids who have a flatter bridge.  However, frames with no rim ("rimless") and partial rim ("semi-rimless") may not be suitable for older kids and tweens, but may be ok for teens.
