- Is my child too young to use contact lenses?
When the user can insert and remove the contact lenses on his own, the patient is ready. At 6 years old, for example, we will need collaboration and commitment from the parents. Several studies demonstrated that children even from early age of 8 years old are capable of successfully manage lens insertion, removal and care. Additionally, it has been reported that the duration of lens wear in children/teenagers was comparable with that seen in adult contact lens wearers and that no more issues related to the age have been identified.
