For a couple of years now, Toby has wore his glasses to play football. He’s used those rubber tie things to go around his head to keep them on but having worn glasses for many years, I know that regardless of how secure your glasses may seem to be, any sort of bump moves them just a tad. Can you imagine how football hits must move them? And worse yet, he started not wearing them at all. Ummmm, hellllooooo Toby, you can’t see the ball, players or anything if you don’t have your glasses on.
After a long talk with Toby about his ‘touching his eyeball’ phobia and athletic necessity, I convinced him to give contacts a try. He’s very responsible so I had no worries about him not taking care of them. It’s funny because when I talk to my kids about drugs, sex, and drinking, I don’t seem to have any issues, they listen and we move on but having the talk about converting from glasses to contacts was a bit harder. There was immediate resistance, questions, phobias, etc. What I found that helped me though, was researching he topic beforehand. I had seen a photo of some teens being active with the Softlens Daily Disposables being the headline. I decided to read a little more on them so that when I approached Toby, I’d have the info to answer his questions that I knew he’d have.
Then, from out of nowhere, I was approached by Mom Central for this VERY same Bausch + Lomb Softlens contacts. It was a sign!! (of many that I’m learning to ‘see’ these days) I was thrilled with the campaign and of course, said yes!
About the Softlens Daily Disposable contact:
Bausch + Lomb SofLens daily disposable lenses are the first and only daily disposables with High Definitionâ„¢ Optics, an aspheric design that reduces spherical aberration over a range of powers — which means exceptional vision all day, and especially in low light.
Stay tuned as I share Toby’s experience and afterthoughts of the contacts! I think that if your teen is in the same situation as Toby, you’ll be pleased and encouraged to learn more about these. I’ll post photos of Toby with his new contacts, which makes him look so much more like this brother!!!
Are you struggling with this very same thing? I’d love to hear about it!
