Contact lenses for children
Can a child wear contact lenses?For people over 12, lenses can also be useful for aesthetic and practical reasons. Indeed, children can be reluctant to wear glasses. As much embarrassed by the look of their comrades as during their sporting activities (swimming, athletics, boxing …), the lenses can make life easier for your little ones. Contact lenses are therefore a good alternative to glasses for your children.
For children under 12, wearing lenses may be more effective than wearing glasses in cases of very severe vision problems.
In all cases, the wearing of lenses is subject to authorization by the ophthalmologist. The optician will in no case advise the wearing of lenses without this authorization.
