I wrote this review while participating in an Influencer campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. and received a promotional item from Mom Central to thank me for participating.
My 16 year old son came to me about two months ago stating that he was ready for contacts. He was done with the glasses. He always seemed to be bending them or knocking them around, and we were taking him to the vision center often for readjustments or to have an ear piece tightened up.
Also, he had come to that stage in his teenage years where vanity was kicking in just a bit. ;)
And I would be lying if I told you all that I wasn't able to relate. I also made the switch to contacts in my early teens because I wanted to fit in better. In the mid-90's, glasses were not cute or cool. The style and lens options that are available today simply just didn't exist back then.
But was my son ready to make the jump to contacts? I mean, he clearly couldn't take care of his glasses all that well. But in his defense, he does have three little sisters all under 4 years old who all happen to love climbing on him and wrestling with him.
The will to want to wear contacts was definitely there, but was he ready to assume the responsibility?
Unlike glasses, not taking care of contacts could have some serious repercussions for his eye health. I mean, those suckers sit right on their eyes.
