Can I wear contact lenses?
There is not a minimum age for wearing contact lenses. Infants and toddlers wear them, some teenagers and adults should not. It is different in each case.
An optometrist or doctor of optometry is a primary care provider. At a minimum, optometrists are required to complete a Bachelor degree, then 4 years of clinical and didactic education at a school of optometry.Passing a series of national and state board examinations are required before an optometrist can practice. In California, 25 hours of continuing education are required to maintain licensure.
