Is My Child Ready to Wear Contact Lenses?

by Wendy Cai on August 11, 2014

Being a kid isn’t all fun in the sun, running through the sprinklers and eating push pops. It can be a very stressful and trying period of a person’s life.  There are those crucial defining moments that can throw a world into complete chaos.  Exhibit A: The whole “Santa Claus” thing. Further down the list is the not so traumatic but equally upsetting visit to the dentist where he finds out he has a cavity and has to get a filling. And right on par with having cavities is that fateful day when the horrible eye doctor tells him he has to get glasses. Wearing glasses could be detrimental to his social life. Let the countdown to the day when he can make the transition from glasses to contacts begin.

There are many benefits to wearing contacts over glasses. If your child is an athlete, contacts offer much more comfort and convenience than having to wear sports goggles. The big question then becomes, “When is it appropriate for a child to make the shift from glasses to contacts?” Sorry to disappoint, but there’s no exact age. Responsibility and maturity are the key the factors. Wearing contacts comes with a lot of responsibilities and can lead to dangerous consequences if care isn’t taken. So before you decide to switch your child over to contacts, sit them down and figure out the following questions.

Do you have a child that wears contact lenses? We would love to hear how you decided when he or she was ready. Tell us in the comments!

Adlens Sundials™: Your Next Must Have!

by Wendy Cai on June 6, 2014

Adlens® has introduced the Sundials, a sun version of its famous variable focus eyewear. When exactly would you wear such a cool gadget, you ask? Let’s take a look at three scenarios where the Sundials would be very handy indeed.

Set. Spike. Ace!

It’s the championship game of your summer volleyball league and you just made a diving dig to save a point. Unfortunately, the impact of hitting the sand made your left contact pop out. Lucky for you, one of your teammates always carries a pair of Sundials with him. With its adjustable lenses, you’re back to spiking
the ball in no time. Crisis averted.

 

Read On

It’s a sunny afternoon. The kids are at school and your husband is at work. It’s the perfect day to sit out on the patio with some ice tea and your latest read. Unfortunately, you seem to have discovered that your fabulous new polarized prescription sunglasses cause a never-ending optical illusion effect on your tablet, and of course, you seem to have run out of contacts. It’s a good thing your kids got those nifty Adlens Sundials™ for your husband for Father’s Day. They’re even unisex, so they fit your face. Afternoon saved!

Lending An Eye

adlens sundials 1After years of debating, you’ve finally decided to bite the bullet and get laser eye surgery. Unfortunately, that means you can’t wear contacts for two weeks prior to the operation and you’ve never bothered to get a pair of prescription sunglasses. Adlens Sundials™ is the perfect solution to your predicament. They can be adjusted so you can take your morning stroll on the boardwalk without running into things and still read on the beach without having to reach for those readers. Keep them handy for after the surgery too because there will be a period of recovery where your vision might fluctuate. Potential problem handled.

 

Adlens Sundials™ feature the same Alvarez lens technology as the multi-award winning Adlens Adjustables™. Durable and lightweight, Sundials are ideal for the active people who don’t let bumps in the road stop them from continuing on their day. Grab a pair of Sundials and be prepared for whatever comes your way.
