AT WHAT AGE CAN YOUR CHILDREN START WEARING CONTACTS?

Most healthcare professionals would agree that an appropriate age for switching from glasses to contact lenses is usually during teen or pre-teen years. However the issue is more a matter of individual maturity and responsibility than physical development.

SIGNS MY CHILD IS READY FOR CONTACTS

Contacts can be a better option than glasses for some children. However unlike glasses, regular contact wear requires more care and responsibility to avoid any risk of infection. If your child willingly follows directions and can properly care for their personal things without constant reminders, they may be ready to handle the responsibility of contact lenses.

BENEFITS OF CONTACTS FOR CHILDREN

Children active in sports can greatly benefit from contacts, particularly because they don’t interfere with sports-related eyewear. In addition, glasses can easily be broken or cause injuries when worn during sports or physical activities, whereas contacts will stay in place and can be more comfortable than glasses. Some children may be concerned that contacts are painful or irritating to wear. However, contact lenses have evolved so much over the years that they are hardly noticeable when worn. Also, your eye doctor can demonstrate how to properly insert and remove contact lenses to avoid any irritation.

THINGS TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR CHILD

If you feel your child is ready for and would benefit from wearing contact lenses, make sure to discuss with them some important rules for proper contact wear. This includes but is not limited to: -          Regularly cleaning and maintaining contact lenses -          Following the proper instructions for insertion and removal -          Informing you if any pain or irritation occurs, or if a contact is lost or damaged -          Informing you if any change of vision occurs -          Complying with any doctor’s order and attending all eye doctor appointments To learn more about whether or not contact lenses are right for your child, visit the Eye Doctor in Dallas for all of your eye care needs.
