Children's Contact Lenses

Is your child ready for contact lenses?

With children under 10 benefiting from contact lens wear there is no 'suitable' age for contact lenses, instead the decision whether you and your child are ready for them is completely individual. Nobody knows them better than you.  With the expertise of our team combined with modern, comfortable lens materials and easy care systems, if you decide to try them we will guide you through the process.

What are the benefits of contact lenses?

Daily disposable contact lenses are ideal for children, they are fresh and clean with every wear.  Many children start their lens wearing life by using them for sports - we commonly fit lenses for football, rugby, gymnastics and dancing.

Some newer materials like silicone hydrogel allow higher levels of oxygen to the eye's surface than ever before.  Contact lens wear is a healthy, convenient, flexible alternative to glasses.
