    It is hard to tell. It mainly depends on your child. In fact, the decision of wearing contact lenses should be made jointly between you, your children and his eye doctor. So, just ask your son first and then take him to get an eye checked by eye doctor to see if he can wear contact lenses.

    Wearing contact lenses aren't a matter of age, but it's better for the children who are over 13 to wear. Nowadays, a large number of children have eye vision problem, thus they need glasses to correct eye vision. However, they don't like regular glasses because it's not light and not beauty for them. Hence, the contact lenses can be a good option for children due to they are more convenient and easy for people to take and wear in daily life. The parents prefer to select daily disposable contact lenses for their children, thus the kids wear fresh and clean contact lenses as well as correct eye vision.

    According to a recent survey conducted by the American Optometric Association, 51 percent of optometrists feel that the tween years, ages 10-12 are the best time to introduce kids to contacts, while 23 percent think that it's better to wait until kids are teens. Another 23 percent think that- depending upon the kid-contacts are fine for kids ages 8 and 9.
