If you are one who wears glasses and hate them, or are fed up of them, contact lenses are a good option for you. But if you are struggling to convince your parents to let you get them, here are a few tips to convince them.
Research about lenses
Go online and research about contact lenses. In today’s world, everything is readily available on the internet. If you aren’t sure whether you will be able to handle contact lenses, ask some friend who already uses them.
Discuss about it with your parents
After researching about it, throw in this discussion with your parents and see what they feel about it. Be practical and reasonable about it and mention costs so that your parents can decide whether it is affordable.
Explain how contacts will help you
Explain to your parents how using contacts is going to help you in your daily life. Do not base your need for lenses solely on how you are going to look without glasses. Make your reasons practical so that your parents can weigh out if you need them or not.
Ask them why if they say no
If your parents are against you having contacts, ask them why, politely. Usually parents would hear negative stories about contact lens problems and you can help clear them out if you have the practical knowledge about it.
If you manage to show your parents that you are responsible enough to handle lenses, then there is no reason they will say no, after explaining why you need them… unless they cannot afford it.
Ask if you can partly pay for your contacts
If your parents cannot afford it, and you feel it is necessary, ask them if you can chip in to help. Save some money and give it to your parents. This way they will see how responsible you are and how much you want it.
Contact lenses are much more convenient, and can change the way people look at you. If you want it that bad, then convincing your parents can be done with these steps.
