Navigating your teens is like leveling up in a video game — full of quests and challenges. One of those challenges might be dealing with glasses. But guess what? We've got a game-changer for you at Custom Eyes Optometry.

What are the Benefits of Contact Lenses for Teens?

Super Clear Vision, All Day Long: 

Let's be honest; glasses might not be your preferred choice. Contact lenses empower you to enhance your self-esteem and feel at ease with your appearance.

Active Lifestyle:

During your teenage years, you engage in various sports and physical activities. With contact lenses, you can fully immerse yourself without worrying about glasses slipping or getting in the way of your lifestyle.

Total Freedom, No Strings Attached:

Contact lenses offer a broader field of vision than glasses, ensuring a more natural and unhindered visual experience.

Style on Point:

We get it: you love to experiment with your style, and contact lenses provide the perfect opportunity to switch up your look without the confines of glasses.

Addressing Concerns

Hygiene and Care:

We've got your back when it comes to maintaining healthy eyes. Learn the ins and outs of cleaning, disinfection, and following Custom Eyes Optometry’s guide.

Initial Discomfort:

It's normal to experience slight discomfort initially. This sensation typically subsides as you become more accustomed to wearing contact lenses.

Responsible Use:

Remember, contact lenses are like medical tools — do not share them with anyone else, and follow the recommended wearing times.

Avoiding Eye Irritation:

To keep your eyes irritation-free, permanently remove your contact lenses before swimming, sleeping, or engaging in activities that could expose your eyes to potential irritants.

Making the Transition to Contacts

Consultation with an Eye Care Professional:

A comprehensive eye examination is essential before embarking on your contact lens journey. Our dedicated eye care professionals at Custom Eyes Optometry will determine if contact lenses fit you and provide expert guidance.

Learning Proper Insertion and Removal:

The process of inserting and removing contact lenses may seem daunting initially. However, you'll have the opportunity to practice under the guidance of our eye care professionals until you're comfortable doing it independently.

Gradual Usage:

We recommend easing into wearing contact lenses. Start with a few hours daily and gradually increase the duration as your eyes adapt.

Open Communication:

Maintaining open communication with your parents, guardians, and our eye care professionals is vital throughout this process. If any concerns or questions arise, we're here to assist you.

Contact lenses can be a game-changer for teens, offering enhanced self-confidence, improved vision, and the freedom to express your style. With proper education, guidance, and unwavering support from your parents and the dedicated eye care professionals at Custom Eyes Optometry, you can confidently embrace contact lenses
