The contact lenses can boost a kid's confidence. contact lenses improve vision-related quality of life in children compared with glasses, especially in the areas of appearance and athletics.Contacts can even help to improve academic confidence, especially among children who are unhappy with their glasses and may not regularly wear them at school or to study. In particular, girls show an improved sense of self-confidence and self-worth when they wear contacts instead of glasses.
Of course yes. With my own experience, in my child hood, I am always called with "Four-eyes" "Specs". I thought it is a kind of insult. Recently, a study shows that kids who need prescription eyewear are still often left wishing that they could leave their glasses behind. And research shows it may improve their self-esteem to do so and children between ages of 8 and 11 that found that kids who wore contacts instead of glasses had significantly higher self-esteem, especially girls because they rest right on the eye, rather than on the bridge of the nose, contact lenses offer better vision correction than glasses. Better vision might be the reason that kids feel more confidence both in school and on the ball field. Kids also might be more willing to play sports when wearing contacts rather than glasses that could break, fall off, or get lost.
Many children these days see wearing of spectacles as a novelty or a fashion statement and there is less of a stigma attached to wearing glasses. However there are still some children who are reluctant to wear spectacles for fear of teasing or name-calling at school. Hyperopic prescriptions can be thick and heavy and magnify the eyes, making the child look different from their peer group. Myopic children who find it hard to participate in sports and vigorous activities without vision correction may find themselves isolated from their peer group. They may be labelled as a 'geek' because they tend to spend time reading, playing electronic games or participating in activities that can be carried out safely without their spectacles. Contact lenses can help children feel more confident about joining in and participating in everyday school life and can help with social and peer group interaction. They may even increase the child's status within their peer group as wearing contact lenses is considered to be a very grown up activity.
