Contact lens wear can start at a younger age than you might expect and is a healthy, safe alternative to spectacles for many children.
Daily disposable lenses are an ideal “starter” option as the lens is discarded each day eliminating any concerns around cleaning or solutions. Many of our young patients start with part-time wear for their sport and with time graduate to full time wear as their experience with lenses develops.
Some children with higher prescriptions benefit from full time contact lens wear when expertly fitted with an appropriate lens.
