Kids and Contact Lenses

Boy-Inserting-Contact-Lenses-at-opticiansContact 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 children’s contact lenses here at Purcell Opticians to children to help restore clear vision.

Are Contact lenses suitable for my child?

We generally recommend contact lenses for older children but our optometrist will assess each child individually and advise on whether they are suitable for contact lenses.  It often helps if a parent is a contact lens wearer as they can pass on their experience.  Our caring and skilled staff will talk your child through how to insert and remove their lenses and look after them.

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.

Friendly service and skilled staff

At Purcell Opticians we will talk through the options with you and your child to make sure your child receives the best care and advice to make the right eyewear choices. If you and your child would like to consider contact lenses, please contact us for more information.
