Spectacles Easier for Kids Than Lenses

Specs Not Lenses

Specs Not Lenses Please

In an article from The Optician on-line a survey says that even though kids might be prepared to wear lenses, their parents aren’t so keen.  the survey (not huge) was amongst 8-17 yer olds.  I’d imagine that the results change dramatically the older the child becomes.

The article states “Despite their children’s willingness to wear contact lenses, four out of 10 of the parents questioned said they were not comfortable with contact lenses for children. Two contributing factors for this included 77 per cent of parents thinking spectacles were easier to keep clean and take care of than contacts and 54 per cent were concerned about their child’s ability to take care of their contact lenses”
