Growing Up: Is My Daughter Ready For Contacts?

Back-to-school 006 My daughter never really thought about contacts too much. She knew people wore them but her thick-rimmed purple glasses with little rhinestones flowering down the sides were right up her alley.

And, then, the hinge broke.

And, she wondered.

Hmmm. . . . contacts could be interesting. 

And, then we learned about Bausch & Lomb Soflens daily disposables and she said,

"I want to try them!"

We have pretty good eye insurance and I was offered some free to review, and so I said, "Okay, let's do this."

It's one of those things I didn't really feel strongly about either way. I've talked about all kinds of things with my daughters but we really hadn't covered this ground since they were a bit young before. It wasn't something I really thought yeah or nay about; but more – when can she handle it? And, is her eyesight really bad enough?

Her daddy wears contacts. I never had. I was a little worried about her trying contacts when she wears glasses that help her both with her focus when writing and distance.

Apparently, through further research and a visit to the eye doctor, we learned that only one eye needs distance sight which means she could wear one contact and perhaps low-power readers when writing. That worked for her because those little readers come in a ton of cute colors these days. She could change those almost as daily as her contacts if she wanted!

And, so we are out of the trial ones that the doctor gave us and we are getting antsy to get the rest but she seems excited so we'll keep going down this road until someone tells me to turn around. I'll talk about the fitting visit in my next post about on this topic!
