Hockey helmet for 9 year with glasses?

Surely someone has a child with glasses and a tip for me?

My daughter wears glasses and her helmet fits fine - what type of issue are you running into?

The masks attached to helmets look pretty generous in terms of space for glasses.

Both my kids play hockey with glasses and have only ever bought the cheapest helmet at Canadian Tire. Unless your kids are wearing some crazy Elton John glasses, they'll be fine. The bigger issue will be fogging up their glasses. I use the dish soap trick and it has worked quite well.

My son has been playing with glasses for years. No helmet changes needed, but our optometrist did suggest cutting a small line of the foam on the side of the helmet if fit was an issue.

As for fogging, there are a few good sprays on the market that help combat this but I’ve heard dish detergent is good as well.
