Many adults would consider contact lenses to be a lifestyle essential and there are no reasons children shouldn’t experience the same benefits.
Good hygiene and care is essential to avoid problems such as infection but contact lenses are available as daily disposable lenses for most prescriptions. This keeps maintenance and risks of infection very low making them a good starting point for children.
We have extensive experience in fitting children with lenses,
even newborn babies requiring medical contact lenses. Our optometrists are amongst the most highly trained in the country, and Ian Cameron is the current UK Contact Lens Practitioner of the Year. Together we will ensure your child’s vision is in safe hands.
Contact lenses are available through our Vision+ membership scheme. For further information please visit cameronoptom.com/vision.
