Aaarrrgggg! Talk about frustrating. We went to get him contacts this weekend. He is 13 and a couple of his friends already wear them successfully! He refuses to wear reg. glasses and is now bumping into the whiteboard at school! Anyway, I have been wearing them since I was 16, so of course can give a great deal of advise, tips and tricks. Well, at the doc's office he finally got them in took about 1.5 hours! He got the taking out part fine (they are soft lenses and he does the "pinch" very well). However since coming home from the doc's office he has only been able to get them into one eye once after about 45 minutes...Now the tears and frustration is setting in and he has got it into his head that he just can't do it. I finally inserted them the other day and then he promptly lost one while playing outside. AAAARRRRGGGG! We got a replacement lense the next day from the doc's office. These are trial pairs! Luckily I have not ordered the contact lense boxes as yet, cause I still want to wait to see how things progress before I shell out over $100! Anyway, I have tried everything! I even found some "how to insert contact" video's done by teenagers on Youtube.... He has "small eyes" almost asian, although we are not but I guess it is some ancient mongolian gene in our past! he is convince his eye is too small to insert this huge lense into! I am about to throw in the towel and let him bump around the school for a couple of more years before trying something like this again. I just don't have the time in the mornings before school to deal with this! He is dog tired in the mornings as it is and so it is double hard for him to get his eye open and concentrate on the task at hand. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
