Teens and tweens eyesight
Teens and tweens are obsessed with their “look” and how they display their personality and appearance ,often times the need for glasses doesn’t fit into the vision of the “look” they have for themselves. Fixing Teen eyesight doesn’t have to be a negative, but can be turned into a positive, as eyewear today is fashion, why should clear vision be integrated into their “look” with a pair of fashionable specs. Clear vision can have a profound impact on their lives in the areas of sports, arts and academics. And with the new glasses comes a sense of responsibility to these tweens and teen to take care of their eyewear.
Some of the great sports figures of today, recording artist and hollywood types sport their eyewear on the red carpet and in post game interviews. Think Russell Westbrook, Taylor Swift and Matt Damon to name a few. The shopping experience with a teen for new glasses can be a fun and interactive experience for the kid and parents. Our staff here at BA Eye Site can help facilitate the conversation between parent and teen which at times can be rather entertaining.
There are times when contacts may actually be a good addition to glasses especially if the child participates in athletics . We typically recommend dailies for kids for a number of reasons from compliance and hygiene to safety. The teen or tween must be vested and interested in contact lenses and not feel pushed into them by the parents. If someone isn’t interested in them then learning to insert, remove, clean and care for them and all add up to trouble down the road.
