My teen doesn’t take care of herself, she is getting better, but responsibility isn’t one of her greatest features.
She was prescribed by our eye doctor a nice pair of glasses several years ago, and I swear I haven’t seen her ever wear them once. They looked great at the doctor’s office but I guess they somehow turned “really ugly” on the way home from our visit!
She has been wanting contact lenses, the ones by acuvue oasys for some time now and I think we may need to be looking into it. I’ve done some researching on the Internet, of course, and have talked with some other parents who kids have them and after I speak with Hubby I guess I will need to call and make an appointment with the eye doctor, might as well get both kids checked, it has been a while.
I was referred to a company that has a web site Lens.com that helped me make up my mind. I must say that contact lenses have come a long way since I gave them a try a few decades ago, mind you, so I basically had to start as a beginner. Their web site was a big help, it was easier than I expected, really.
Daughter wants her lenses to be tinted of course, I was expecting that, but no problem, the cost didn’t scare me away from the idea. They have ‘Novelty Lenses” called Wild Eyes that seem really awesome, Hubby would flip for sure. Anyway they offer lenses from the leading top manufactures of lenses so I could check out a variety of them, some with offers of up to 70% off retail prices.
One of my issues with contacts was how dry they made my eyes feel, from what I read, it looks like they have tackled that issue, everything states how moist they are. Dry eyes are a real bummer.
So after we visit the doctor I will get online and use this fast, easy way to get her the lenses. We can place her order with them and track the order as it goes, I might even be eligible for a rebate (I love rebates). If all goes well I will continue to re-order her lenses from them since I will already have an account with there. Sounds good to me, I’ll let you know.
