EyeMax is so grateful for all our wonderful patients and the opportunity you have given us to care for your eyes this year!

Providing excellent care and convenience to our patients is a top priority for EyeMax. That's one of the reasons we have chosen to build our practice inside Walmart- you're just a step or two away from ordering glasses and contacts in the Vision Center.

We also understand that many of our patients prefer ordering online, so we've implemented a new program to make that process even easier! EyeMax has partnered with Dr. Contact Lens (https://portal.drcontactlens.com/) to provide a location where our patients can access their prescription at any time, and order contacts with just a few clicks. Once your prescription is finalized, it will be uploaded to the secure website where it will be accessible to you through text or email. All our patients with a current prescription will be have access to this resource. If you have insurance benefits that you need to use, we may be able to help you apply these benefits as well.

We hope this change makes your life just a little bit easier. Something we can all use in 2020! Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 859-272-1422 if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!

No teenager likes to be caught wearing something that makes them different, and for many teenagers, glasses can often feel that way. Just the thought of ''four eyes'' can send a teen panicking. Compared to eyeglasses, kids and teens that opt for lenses report a significant improvement in their appearance, reports a newly published study. The research report indicates that starting at the age of eight, pre-teens should be given the choice of contact lenses. The study was reported in the November issue of Eye & Contact Lens, the official publication of the Contact Lens Association.

What is it about contacts that adolescents prefer? Young adults are self-conscious, and they often feel more attractive and accepted if they don't have eye glasses being the focus of their appearance. Contact lenses can promote a young adult's self-esteem by giving them a less obvious alternative for their vision needs.

Although teens are generally provided with contact lenses, children under thirteen are typically not given the option of contacts, because eye doctors or parents don't believe that children have the proper maturity to deal with them sufficiently. Actually, with proper instruction, even at age eight, children are as capable at using and caring for contact lenses and they should be offered the option.

Generally before your child chooses contacts you should ask your optometrist to discuss any potential issues your child might encounter. Our Lexington, KY, optometry practice can assist you to come up with the right prescription for your young adult's contacts.

If your child or teenager is in need of vision correction, why not consider lenses? Through just a simple contact lens, you can enhance your teen's self-image. With the large variety of contacts on the market, you and your eye care practitioner can work with your child to decide what type of lens is most suitable for their character and style of life.
