You know how great contacts can be; they look good and are one less thing to worry about losing over the course of the day. Plus, with the right lenses and proper care, they can be super comfortable. Savvy kids and teens are often interested in trying contacts, in fact, more than 79% of teenagers prefer contacts to glasses. So if you have a child in glasses, it might not be long until they are looking to make the leap to contacts. That’s why the Denver optometrists of Vision Care Specialists recommend the Lens Friends program to help in this transition.
It’s important to use contacts safely and develop a routine for contact hygiene in order to keep their eyes healthy, avoid infection, and wear contacts comfortably. This responsibility can pose a challenge to some kids, which is where Lens Friends comes in to help.
