how do you convince your parents into getting you contacts.?

I have glasses but they are so annoying and I want hazel contacts because I have light-brown eyes and I don't like them.

Contacts are awesome but you have to be responsible to wear them, If you don't follow the rules, you could ruin your eyes.
Ask your parents if they would at least talk to your eye doctor about wearing contacts? They can be expensive tho, so maybe the cost is part of the reason why your mom is saying no..but you should at least talk to mom about how you feel wearing glasses and if you can wear contacts [some can't] that you could help repay for them by doing house chores , getting better grades in school etc. Good luck..I love mine, but i do have a problem inserting them ..darn!:(

Contacts are not good for the eyes until one is an adult, they hinder the proper development, just as one cannot have lazik surgery until the eyes are physically mature.

You need to find out several things about eye care and affordability. First thing. Do you know IF or how much your parents health insurance covers for eye care. Some health plans DON'T pay for glasses/contacts. The cost of contacts is NEVER cheaper than glasses. It is always MUCH more, every 30 days you have to get another box of contacts. Contacts are not long term like a pair of glasses. Have you asked if the decision your parents have made regarding glasses/contacts is financial based, or is it based upon something else.

depends on soft vs gas permeable. Gas permeables are cheaper than glasses.

I have the type of contacts that are gas permeable. They will last for 3 to 5 years unless my eyesight changes. They actually help to correct your eye. Your eye does not strain from point of eye to the glass in glasses. They came highly recommended by my Dr. The cost was about 250$

I wear contacts. I just told my parents that it was really hard to play sports with glasses and i was scared to run because i thought my glasses were gonna fall off. Then they took me to the eye doctor and the doctor approved.
