When Should a Child Start Contact Lenses?

Parents often ask me, "When can my child consider wearing contact lenses?"

This is a very good question. In my experience, there is no magical age at which children can consider contacts. I do always engage parents in the discussion but I have found over the years that as long as the child is motivated and parents are on board, we can consider talking about contact lenses.
