At Golden Eye Optometry, we view good vision care as front line protection at every age. A routine eye exam can detect more than poor vision. It can shed early light on glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetes.

  1. Thanks for pointing out that modern contact lenses are designed to be very comfortable. We are thinking about getting some contact lenses for my daughter so that she can play sports a little bit easier. I think that since they are comfortable she might also just switch to wearing them every day because they’re a little bit less of a hassle than glasses.

  2. Contact lenses eliminate the need to wear glasses all the time that is true we are about to attend a wedding party and my son just hesitates wearing glasses in parties as he thinks it does not look good and so we were planning to buy him a contact lens but was not sure whether it would be a better choice as he is just 12. But through your article all my doubts are clear and I really thank you for the article as my son would now be happy to see himself without glasses now.

  3. It’s good that you point out that wearing contacts can be great for teens with poor vision who are involved in athletics. My son plays basketball, and I’m considering getting him contact lenses so that he doesn’t have to wear his glasses on the court. I’m going to look for a good vision center that can sell me some contact lenses.
