Frequently asked Patient Questions to our Eye Doctor in Mansfield, DeSoto and Fort Worth:
Q. How old should my child be before they wear contact lenses?
A. Contact lens success is more dependent on your child’s maturity and how responsible they are than a specific date on the calendar. I most frequently see children start contact lens wear when they are 11-12 years old, but have successfully fit children as early at 8 years old. With daily disposable lenses, we have many great options that offer the health benefits that parents want and the convenience that the child desires. We look forward to discussing your child’s specific contact lens needs.
