Baltimore Contact Len Specialist on Self Esteem for Teens

“Teens and tweens are often quite challenged during adolescence by the “Trifecta of Awkwardness-braces, acnes and glasses!” commented Baltimore Washington Eye Center Contact Lens Specialist Dr. Shari Strier. Contact lenses can play an important role in helping adolescents-especially teenagers-with some difficult times for their self esteem and self image. “I know all too well from my own kids, the peer pressure and insecurity created by concerns about appearance at these ages,” Dr. Strier stated. 

Not being able to play sports or worrying about how they look can leave many teens feeling anxious, stressed out and unhappy. “We love fitting children in this age group with contact lenses because we routinely see that teens who wear contact lenses benefit beyond simply correcting their vision. They typically improve in how they feel about their physical appearance, their acceptance among friends and of course their ability to play sports,” further explained Dr. Strier.
