What Are Children's Contacts and Eyeglasses?

At Family Vision Care of Cool Springs, we offer premier pediatric eye care services, including durable and trendy glasses and contacts options. When fitting your child with glasses or contacts, our goal is primarily to improve their vision; however, we want them to be comfortable enough that children — even very young ones — can keep them on all day. We feature a wide range of frames, from cable temple frames for infants to popular brands, such as Nike and Ray-Ban, for teens that care more about the appearance of their frames. Additionally, we offer contacts for children, which can be a great option if you have an athletic child. While we don't typically suggest contacts any earlier than seven years old, the maturity level of your child has an impact on whether or not they're ready for the responsibility of contacts. We can work with you and your child to determine if glasses or contacts are their best option. For more information, contact our optometrists, Dr. Daxx Dunn, Dr. Marla Weldon, and Dr. Kelly Short, at our Franklin, TN office today.

How Can I Help My Child Select Glasses or Contacts?

The first step in helping your child find the correct glasses or contacts is by conducting a comprehensive eye exam. This exam will help us determine the strength and prescription your child needs. From there, we will assess whether your child qualifies for glasses or contacts. Some things we'll consider are their age, daily habits, activity level, maturity, and preference. If your child selects glasses, we will help them find a fit and style appropriate for them that they find attractive. If your child is interested in contacts, we'll review the responsibility of having contacts, including how to put them in and take them out and how to properly care for them. Either way, we will ensure that the fit and focus of your child's glasses or contacts are correct at a follow-up appointment once they've received their eyewear.
