at what age would you or did your child get contacts? My son tried them at age 9, but he wasn't taking them out at night and it was a hassel in the mornings.
So, we didn't even try at last years eye exam.
Anyhow, he'll be 11 in a few days? He wants to play football in school in Aug.
His is old enough, now? At age 9 the eye doctor thought he was old enough.

I can't remember how old I was when I started wearing them. I got glasses at age 9 though. My son tried and tried to wear them and was never able to. He is now 22 and still can't wear them. I think that if he is able to put them in then it should be okay. However, you will have to make sure that he takes them out at night. Even if you stand over him as he gets ready for bed and make sure they come out of his eyes. They can do serious damage to the cornea of the eye if he continues to sleep with them. Even the kind that say you can sleep with them in are not good because they do not allow oxygen to get into your eye and they can scratch your eye.
