If your child has been wearing glasses since they were diagnosed with an eye problem, but they are now interested in contacts, you'll want to talk with your eye specialist to reach a verdict. You want to make sure that contacts will be accommodating to your child's vision impairment, and that they are ready for this responsibility.
Children as young as 8 years old can start wearing contacts. This is if the parent thinks they are responsible enough to do so and the eye specialist recommends it.
