Are contact lenses safe for children?

Updated: Nov 3, 2022

Why don't you see rugby or football players wearing glasses? The answer, as with other contact sports, is that players who need a form of eyesight correction wear contact lenses when participating in sport.

When you think about it, the wearing of contact lenses makes sense. Glasses can become dislodged and broken and, more worryingly, could cause an injury to the wearer or another player. Contact lenses are far safer whilst simultaneously enabling sports people to have an excellent visual perception of the playing area.
