Contact Lens FAQ 

How old does my child have to be to wear contact lenses?

Since we fit infants who have had cataract surgery with contact lenses, there really is no minimum age. However, for routine cases, a child's maturity is a critical component in deciding when the patient is "ready." High prescriptions and/or need for better vision during sports activities may be reasons to fit a child on a part- or fulltime basis at an early age. Typically, we will start to consider contact lenses at around age 9.
