Q&A with Dr. Lance B. Dunoff
Dr. Lance B. Dunoff Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Can kids wear contact lenses?
A. Contact lens wear is not a matter of age. Many infants and toddlers wear them; some teenagers shouldn't. In other words, every case is different. Here are a few things you should know to help you decide whether contacts are a good idea for your own children:
- Some contact lenses can slow the progression of nearsightedness.
- Contact lenses are better for sports activities.
- Many children, and most teens, would rather wear contacts than glasses.
Most eye care professionals report great results with kids and contact lenses. No eye doctor will prescribe contact lenses for children or teenagers who aren't ready for them or who don't have a good reason to wear them. And they don't hesitate to unprescribe them if a child doesn't take good care of them.
Talk it over with Dr. Dunoff — he is the best person to help you decide what's right for your children's vision correction.
