Are You Ready for Summer? Sarah Warburton re you ready for a summer of baseball, kayaking, camping, hiking, sun bathing or just shopping and catching a movie? If several summers have come and gone since you’ve considered contact lenses, you’re missing out on a world of options. Dr. Anh Doan of Missouri City’s Vision Source says, “Every year we see new advances that make contact lenses easier and more comfortable. Summer’s a great time to come in for an exam...and try something new!” If you’ve got a kid who’s always on the go, contact lenses can keep up with that busy pace. Dr. Doan says, “Most middle schoolers are ready for the responsibility of contacts. Even kids as young as young as eight or nine may be mature enough for contacts...if they are motivated and have a good reason for wanting them. Contact lenses are much easier than glasses for many sports like gymnastics, cheer, football, and baseball. Come in for an exam, and we’ll discuss all the options.” If you sneeze your way through summer, you may still be cleared
for contacts. Dr. Doan says, “We can try different types of contact lens, like daily disposable contact lenses, which are discarded nightly. Since you’ll replace your lenses each day, irritating deposits don’t build up and make your allergyrelated discomfort worse.” Are you tired of juggling your reading glasses, your driving glasses, and your sunglasses? One pair of multifocal lenses plus one stylish pair of protective sunglasses equals one sensational summer! Dr. Doan says, “Many people are surprised to learn that they can wear contact lenses, even if they wear bifocal, trifocal, or even progressives. If you’re dreading your first pair of bifocal glasses, we’ll consider a contact lens to help you see both close up and far away, as well as correct astigmatism.” A visit to Vision Source is the perfect way to kick off your summer. And Dr. Doan wants you to remember, “With or without contact lenses, always wear sunglasses
