Personally, children shall not wear contact lenses for the sake of their eye health. Technically, children's eyes can tolerate contact lenses at very young age. However, this is not a matter of age or physically condition, it is a matter of a child's maturity and ability to handle contact lenses. If they use contact lenses improperly, it may cause serious eye problems such as eye infection or cornea scratches etc. So, we not suggest parents buy contact lenses for their children. In fact, prescription eyeglasses are much more better for them.
Dear parents, if your child has myopia, I think you should choose the contacts that can slow the progression of nearsightedness. It is said that GP contact lenses may reduce the progression of myopia. GP lenses can retain its shape because they are made of a firm plastic material. GP contacts are easy to clean without tearing or scratching the lenses. GP contacts can last longer than glasses or soft contacts. They are also healthier than other kind of glasses.
Personally I think that the one-day disposable contact lenses are good for children. Since some children are not good at doing things such like keep bedroom clean and follow through with schoolwork and household chores. If children need frequent reminders to keep things clean and follow good hygiene practices, they may not be ready for the responsibility of wearing and caring for contact lenses. But if they handle such duties well, they might be excellent candidates for contacts.
