Hi, if my child need to wear glasses (but at a low degree), would it be advisable to take the glasses off periodically, e.g. when doing sports?

It's best that you discuss this with your optometrist as proper understanding of his/her prescription and issues like binocular vision must be considered before making the relevant advice and suggestions.
