  • When it comes to performance in the classroom or on the field, ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses are hard to beat.

  • The average age teens first get contacts is 13, but it has been shown that some younger children are mature enough to wear and care for contact lenses. Wearing contacts is more about responsibility than age. To see if your child is ready for contacts, ask yourself the following questions:

    •  Do they keep their grades up?
    •  Do they do their homework?
    •  Do they help out around the house?

    If you answered "yes", then your son or daughter is probably ready. But, if your child frequently forgets to brush his or her teeth, or if personal hygiene isn't a priority, then they should stick with glasses. At least for now. Your eye doctor will help you determine if lenses are right for your child.

    Talk to your eye doctor

  • When properly cared for and worn as instructed by an eye doctor, contact lenses for kids are a safe and healthy option. Unlike eyeglasses, contacts won't break while wearing them and they aren't likely to be damaged in physical activities.
