They’re more in tune with style and trends than ever before. And, the younger end of Generation Z is more independent than the children of the generations before them—they have their own voice and are encouraged to share their opinions.

Tune into our lineup of the newest cool cat kids’ eyewear styles here to see what’s on trend for your smallest patients.
