    Contact lens wear is not a matter of age. Many infants and toddlers wear them; some teenagers shouldn't. In other words, every case is different. 69% of responding contact lens practitioners said they believe that GP contact lenses may reduce the progression of childhood myopia.you had better go on a date with your eye doctor, I think he is the best person to help you.

    While there may be no minimum or recommended age for wearing contact lenses, it's still important to consider whether contacts are appropriate. This decision has less to do with age than with your child's unique traits and context. Here are some tips for evaluating whether your child is ready to wear contacts.Can your child handle this responsibility? Does she learn instructions well? Does he regularly do his chores without reminding? Does she forget her homework at home? Think about whether your child can learn how to properly insert and remove contacts, even when tired, keep lenses clean, and follow a regular wear schedule.Does your child need contacts? Is your eye doctor suggesting contacts? Does your child want them for better performance in sports? If the concern is purely cosmetic, consider chatting with your child about any underlying issues or peer pressure that might be driving his or her desire. If all the above the answers are yes, then your child can wear contacts.
