Dear customer,

You may get the glasses ready for him instead of the contact lenses as he is just 13 years old and is still growing child.The contacts does have side effects and may land up to have complications for the child of such age.As he grows more older and his vision and correction stabilises then he may swith to contacts if he desires.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Kindly rate me positive if you are satisfied with my answer.

Thank you

Is it necessary to proceed with the glasses immediately and will they need to be worn all the time?
Eye Doctor: Dr. RK, Ophthalmologist replied 7 months ago

Dear customer,

Since it is the start, he should wear for as long as he feels comfortable as it will halt the deterioration of his vision.The skipping of glasses will cause decrease in vision and consequent poor performance in school and other activities.The most of the time he wears , it will be beneficial for him.

Once he attains his adult age then his vision will stabilise and then he can go for the excimer laser to remove the glasses or continue to wear if he decides.Also sometimes the vision improves and he may be comfortable without glasses as well.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Kindly rate me positive if you are satisfied with my answer.

Thank you
