The Right Age for Contacts

Parents spend many years looking forward to a time when their children will be more independent. It’s difficult to care for one or more little people and still care for yourself! When children start growing into teenagers and young adults, parents often agonize over when their children are ready for these newer and greater responsibilities. One question we are often asked is, “What is the right age for contacts?”

Types of Contact Lenses

Millions of people wear contact lenses to help them see clearly. We’ve seen many advancements in lens materials and designs over the years. If you have tried contacts in the past, but stopped due to discomfort or poor quality, it may be time to try again. Dr. Sybesma will help select the best option for your eyes! We have a variety of options for your specific type of prescription correction, tear production, lifestyle, and more. Contact us at Sybesma Eye & Vision Center to learn more.


Blepharitis is a common condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids. It is characterized by redness, swelling, styes, cysts, and flaky crusts at the eyelid margin and along the lash line. Symptoms also include scratchy, swollen, tender, and irritated eyes.


A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. Left untreated, it is the most common cause of blindness and is conventionally treated with surgery. Vision loss occurs because opacification of the lens obstructs light from passing through and being focused on to the retina at the back of the eye.


As we look forward to re-opening, I want to thank you for your patience and entrusting our office with your vision care needs. We are all well-aware of the constantly changing concerns about the Coronavirus and want to take this opportunity to make you aware of the changes that you will see at our office when you return. The precautions we are taking are to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Our goal is to ensure a safe and sanitary environment for everyone in our office. As always if you have symptoms of cough, respiratory distress, or a fever, we are asking that you reschedule your appointment by calling 563-652-2795.

Changes around the office include:

  • All office visits will be BY APPOINTMENT. Please call and schedule your glasses repairs, glasses and contact lens pick-ups, adjustments, etc.
  • A reduction in the number or chairs in the reception area to obey social distancing.
  • A change in the number of appointments we will schedule each day. We ask for your patience as we do our best to get you scheduled.

Changes we are asking of you include:

  • You will be required to wear a mask. Please have it on when you enter the building.
  • We ask that you CALL (563-652-2795) when you ARRIVE at the parking lot. We will then obtain the necessary information and alert you when you can enter the building for your appointment.
  • We ask that you come alone to your appointment. If a second person or driver is necessary, they will be asked to stay in the car but otherwise will be screened prior to being in the building.
  • We will check your temperature when you enter.
  • You will be asked to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer on entry.
  • We are requiring you to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire prior to your appointment. This can be found on our website (sybesmaeyecare.com) and submitted PRIOR to your appointment. If you have ANY positive answer you should reschedule your appointment.
