A new study reveals that children who wore contact lenses over glasses had higher levels of self- perception and social acceptance.

Children in the study, done by researchers at Ohio State University’s College of Optometry, were between 8 – 11 years old and were evaluated over a period of three years, according to HealthDay.

 “Many studies have examined the effect of spectacle wear on self-perception and the perception of others, but the majority of this research has been conducted on adults," University researcher Jeffrey J. Walline reported. "Research shows spectacles to be associated with poorer self-perception in adults if they were first worn during childhood."

The conclusion? Kids who wore contacts did have higher levels of self-perception, self-acceptance, as well as feelings about their appearance and athletic ability.
