It’s prom season! While most teens are counting down the days to prom by planning out what to wear, hair and makeup ideas, and even the limousine, some teens may want to consider adding an appointment with an eyecare practitioner for contact lenses to their prom calendar too.
Contact lenses allow teens to showcase themselves without having to hide behind their eyeglasses. For teens interested in wearing eye makeup to prom, eyeglasses can distort the way eye makeup looks , so contact lenses are the better option.
There are a variety of contact lenses that teens can choose from, so talking things out with an eye care practitioner can help teen patients select the right contact lens for their specific needs.
Some options for contact lenses include:
- Daily Disposable Contact Lenses:Proclear 1 Day contact lenses that are convenient for occasional wear. So for teens who just love their eyeglasses, but want to feel different for prom night, daily disposables are a good choice. These contact lenses are low maintenance too!
- Extended Wear Contact Lenses:For teen patients who may be too tired from prom at the end of the night to take off their contact lenses, options for extended overnight wear may be ideal. CooperVision offers Biofinity contact lenses for patients who may need overnight wear.
Whatever option teen patients choose, prom is a special night. Patients should contact an eyecare practitioner near them to learn more about their contact lens options for prom. Click here for a free trial!
