Question durable glasses for crazy active 9 year old

Turns out, DS, 9 needs glasses. He is fairly careless and looses everything so i dont want to spend a ton of money on them. also loves to fidget with things and breaks most everything. dh and i do not wear glasses so this is a new world for us! any recommendations for a brand of very durable frames?

joyful mama to DS 2-05, open adoption birthmama to DD 5-07: and DS 6-98, and my littlest one 7-09. crazy in love with DH!

I love zennioptical.com , they have glasses starting at $6.95. The quality is good and they come in all sorts of styles! We love them!

I second that! I use Zenni Optical for our glasses too. Just got my new pair in yesterday at $14.90 total cost with shipping. My 9 year old has glasses and I don't worry about it because I know I can buy a new pair for $10-20!!!
