In very small children, aged 2 or 3, contact lenses can help to address developmental issues. Pediatric eye care professionals have developed ways of testing early childhood eyesight and identifying eye conditions. For example, in small children where refractive errors vary vastly from one eye to the other, contact lenses can equalize the size of the image that each eye provides to the brain. This may help to rescue a child from developing a serious learning deficiency.
Also, some small children are at risk of developing wandering or lazy eyes, and they won’t tolerate eyeglasses or they cheat and peer overtop them. Here, contact lenses are an effective alternative.
