Pediatric Contact Lens Fittings
Contact lenses can be a great option for kids, especially if they are involved in sports activities. However, contacts for children is a decision that has to be weighed very carefully by parents together with the doctor. Maturity level of the child, motivation and desire to wear contacts, and responsibility to take proper care of their lenses on their own are major factors when deciding if your child should graduate to contact lenses. Children as young as 7 years old successfully wear contacts, whereas some teenagers are just not ready yet.
Our doctors administer contact lens fittings for children of all ages. We provide everything—including trial lenses, training sessions for proper handling and care of their lenses, lens cases and solutions to get your child started! Any follow-up visits for lens checks are also included. We can also take care of the contact lens supply and have them delivered to you for your convenience.
