Although studies have examined problems with spectacle frame fit, little is known about appropriate frame design for children. To identify practical problems in this area, semi-structured interviews were conducted in Hong Kong with dispensing opticians, children who wear glasses, and the children’s parents. The data analysis showed that frame width, nose pads, and leg shape were related to fit problems. However, there is no fit standard between faces and frames, and the temple width was the main reference used by dispensing opticians to help children choose spectacle frames. In conclusion, dispensing opticians are important actors in the selection of more appropriate spectacle frames for children, but they might be unable to solve fit problems in the nose area and ears due to deficiencies in frame design. As little research has been conducted on problems in children’s spectacle design and fit, further studies on spectacle frame design should investigate children’s facial features and special needs.
