Most experts believe that children can choose contact lenses for permanent use, starting from 8-10 years old. At this age, children, as a rule, can already independently properly handle their contact lenses (put on, take off) and take care of them. Moreover, practice shows that children are more responsible in caring for their contact lenses than many adults. When deciding whether it is possible for a child to choose contact lenses to wear, the main role is played by the child's willingness to wear and care for them. If he himself wants it, then he, most likely, will follow all the doctor's recommendations for the safe wearing of contact lenses. Just early, this is not a doctor's answer.
As a bespectacled man with experience and very poor eyesight, I can say that glasses are, to some extent, even more comfortable. Surely, you want to buy lenses because "fu, bespectacled", "I'll look like a nerd in them" and other absurd reasons. Moreover, before the age of 18, it is highly discouraged to wear lenses due to the fact that the eye is still in the stage of formation and even leaps in vision are possible (more likely, for the worse).
In general, it is best to just choose frames in any city optics; a frame in which you will like yourself. And when the time comes, then decide whether you should wear lenses or not.
What's the question? The doctor said on the basis of the examination, he saw you at least, but we do not know what you have and how in your eyes.
If you are complex or something like that, then you shouldn't. Glasses are convenient and beautiful if you find a normal frame. Many, on the contrary, wear "pacifiers" with ordinary glasses to maintain style. And in our difficult times, when every second has vision problems, glasses are no longer a reason for jokes. I would advise you to wear glasses while, then - lenses, and it is better after 18 to do a reconstructive operation at all (they are doing it before, they told me at 14 that only after 18 is possible).
I don't know , is there an age limit for lenses, but I myself also did not wear lenses until I was 16-17. In high school, I began to wear it, because I had an internship on a regional TV, glasses glared, in short, an exceptional production necessity. As soon as she stopped appearing in the frame, she began to wear glasses again. Plus, I'm allergic, my eyes quickly get tired of lenses, dry, and start to itch. And he wanted glasses - took off, wanted - put on. Cool!
Do these -1.5 hinder your life? If not, then lenses are really not needed.
Usually at -1.5 they write out a prescription for glasses that are worn only during work (study, spending time at the computer, etc.).
But if you really want to try, take lenses at -1, - this at least will not worsen your vision.
