Daily Disposable Contacts: A Smart Choice for Your Child
While contacts are often preferred over glasses, it may be hard to get your child adjusted to a daily routine to clean and take care of their contacts (and a hassle to do it for them). Poor cleaning can also affect eye health, which is why it is especially important to make sure your child is cleaning and properly storing their contacts.
And if they don’t take care of them, costs can add up very quickly if you need to keep replacing them.
Another option is daily disposable contacts. Though these can be more expensive, the luxury of being able to throw them out at the end of the day and grab a new pair in the morning is often worth it, especially when it comes to children.
As it is also allergy season, daily disposable contacts allow less time for pollen and other irritants to surround the contacts. With regular contacts, children may complain over time that their eyes get dry or irritated. The discomfort that may build up with regular contact lenses doesn’t happen with disposables! And if you are traveling this summer, disposables are a fast and easier option to bring along.
There are many different varieties, including differences based on prescription, the size and curvature of the eye, and ocular health. Lenses can be customized to help deal with eye conditions such as myopia. Our doctors will be sure to fit your child in the lens that is best suited to them.
