Specsavers Galway stores specialise in children’s eyecare and can provide you with expert advice on the best eyewear ranges for your little ones. This includes contact lenses, which are perfect for after school sports and other recreational activities ahead of the new school year.
Contact lenses can be a great alternative for children on the go, as glasses are not always the most practical choice for activities such as GAA, gymnastics, and rugby.
Store director at Specsavers Headford Road, Cathy O’Boyle, said: "The teams at Specsavers Galway stores will be able to advise parents on whether their child is eligible for contact lenses and then assist in choosing the correct contact lenses for their kids to wear. There is no official age for children to start wearing contact lenses, but we recommend those interested should attend a consultation with our expert opticians, with a parent present."
At Specsavers Galway stores, the optometrist will discuss the child’s prescription with the parents and their suitability for a contact lens trial. Children will be taken through the process of cleaning, caring for, handling, and using contact lenses on their own.
Specsavers Eyre Square store director, Noel Meehan, added: "Contact lenses can be a convenient option for some active children. In addition to offering contact lenses to younger customers, Specsavers Galway stores house a fantastic selection of kids glasses, from Disney Princess to the new Toy Story 4 collection."
