Specsavers Eyre Square and Headford Road specialise in children’s eye care and provide expert advice on the best eyewear ranges for kids. This includes contact lenses, which can be perfect for afterschool sports and other recreational activities. Contact lenses are a great alternative for active children on the go, as glasses are not always the most practical option for GAA, gymnastics, or running around in the park after school.
The professional optical teams at Specsavers Galway stores are happy to advise parents and children on choosing the correct contact lenses to wear. The optometrist will discuss the child’s prescription with the parents and his/her suitability for a contact lens trial.
Store director at Specsavers Eyre Square, Noel Meehan, said: "Contact lenses can be a convenient option for some active children. However, they must be shown the correct way to use them in order to prevent any discomfort or misuse. Our team will always ensure parents and children are given thorough demonstrations in store to show them best practice."
Annette Flanagan, store director at Specsavers Headford Road, added: "Contact lenses remove the worry about breaking or damaging glasses, which can be a concern for parents. Their full field of vision is also in focus, which is great for sports."
In addition to offering contact lenses to younger customers, Specsavers Galway stores house a great selection of children's glasses from brands such as Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars.
At Specsavers Galway stores, you can avail of children's UltraClear SuperClean lenses for just €30, which include UV protection and are anti-reflective, giving clearer vision when using tablets, computers, and the whiteboard at school.
All children’s frames are priced at €55 and are free with an under-12s HSE optical voucher. Children can also choose a second pair from the same range, to the same prescription, for only €24.
