How old do I need to be to wear contact lenses?

A person can begin wearing contact lenses at a very young age. The real question is one of maturity. Parents and children should discuss the option of contact lenses with their eye care professional very seriously and come to a clear decision. If your child switches to contacts and is unable to handle the responsibility that comes with them, it’s never too late to switch back to glasses as a safer alternative.
