A common misconception is that you have to be a certain age to wear contact lenses but we believe children just have to be mature enough to look after their lenses. A recent study of 8-11 year olds found that 90% had no trouble applying or removing their lenses without assistance.
Good hygiene and care is essential to avoid problems such as infection but contact lenses are available as daily disposable lenses for most prescriptions. This keeps maintenance and risks of infection very low making them a good starting point for children.
Having spent ten years working in a specialist paediatric hospital service we have extensive experience in fitting children with lenses, even newborn babies requiring medical contact lenses.
