Teenagers and Contact Lenses

How Old Do I Have to Be?

There is no “right age” to start wearing contact lenses. If you feel you will be able to responsibly wear and care for your lenses, then talk to your parents about setting up an appointment with your eye care professional.

Do you like to try new things? Are you involved with sports and/or other extracurricular activities? Do you talk about contacts? These are all good indicators of being able to follow a routine and that you will most likely have success with contact lenses.

What Makes a Great First Contact Lens?

A great first contact lens offers performance and comfort while also offering a healthy, safe option (for your parents’ peace of mind). Also, a great first lens offers easy handling and durability – to make insertion and removal a breeze.
