People who invest in contact lenses as a form of vision correction will find that the products provide plenty of benefits, despite some myths existing about them.
That is according to an article on NewsMax.com, which noted that one of the single biggest myths about the products is that they are not suitable for children.
The website pointed out that a key reason why many children do not wear lenses is that their parents consider them irresponsible or not yet mature enough to deal with the responsibility of them, but this is often not the case.
It stated: "The fact is that children take no time in getting used to wearing contact lenses. However, care must be taken to ensure that they are well trained in wearing the contacts properly to avoid hurting their eyes."
Recently, teen gymnast Jordyn Swenson told ABCLocal.com that she has begun wearing contact lenses as she has myopia and the products help her to focus on objects which are far away.
