Contact lens wear can have a positive effect on kids’ confidence and ability to concentrate in class, meaning better results and happier children. If your child is active and plays sports, then contact lenses may be the ideal choice for them. No more smudged lenses, steaming up or costly broken frames. They will benefit visually from better depth perception, a wider field of view and all round better stability of vision.
We regularly prescribe contact lenses here at Waltham Abbey Opticians to children to help restore clear vision.
Are Contact lenses suitable for my child?
Great for kids that like sport
If your child is into sports, their spectacles may be a potential hazard. Children with moderate spectacle prescriptions often cannot see clearly beyond a few metres without their glasses and this can impair their performance. Children’s contact lenses can help to improve their hand eye co-ordination, their peripheral vision and safely improve their game.
