Why Contacts Might Be a Good Option for Your Child

School is here! Are your child’s eyes ready?

Back-to-School is a happy, yet stressful time for parents. We’re all searching for the coolest outfits and the best school supplies to get their year started right. And for many, new eyeglasses top the list. But have you considered if your child is ready for contact lenses?

At What Age Can My Child Wear Contacts?

This is a common question, and the answer might surprise you. Most people assume contacts and kids just don’t go together. But that’s not always the case.

In general, it’s safe to wear contacts at an early age. Your local optometrist can tell you whether or not it’s a good option for your child.

However, one important consideration is how well they handle other responsibilities, like cleaning up their room and personal hygiene. Wearing contacts takes more care than eyeglasses, so they need to be ready to take on that responsibility.

If you’re concerned, ask your optometrist about daily disposible contact lenses or “dailies.” Your child can simply take them out and throw them away at the end of the day. The next morning, put on a fresh pair and they’re good to go.
