My 4 years old son has a habbit of watching TV at a very close distance (nearly 3 to 4 feet) When I noticed this I took him to a eye specialist.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
He will have to wear it, as without them he will be unable to read what is writtin on the blackboard in classroom , also play any sports properly or watch tv from a decent distance. Moreover if he doesnt wear them and strian his eyes, the number of glasses (power ) will go on increasing.
Talk to him, make him understnd the need, be gentle, if he thinks glasses as a punishment he will break/throw them away.
Cut down on his TV time, also when he is reading/studyin make sure the position and light are approprite.
