Benefits for Teens & Young Adults

Vision Quality

Contact lenses provide comprehensive vision, so kids can safely spot things out of the corner of their eye.


Contact lenses can help give kids a self-esteem boost. In a clinical study, 80% of parents agreed that contact lenses made their children feel more confident.


Lenses allow them freedom to run around, take part in sports, and play without glasses getting in the way. That also means no fear of glasses breaking or being knocked off.

Comparable Cost to Glasses

Contact lenses are usually easier and cheaper to replace than glasses when they are lost.

Are They Ready?

There’s No Minimum Age

When it comes to deciding whether or not your child or teen is ready for contacts, it’s important to consider how mature they are. Are they showing responsibility at school and at home? If the answer is yes, it may be time.
