FDA Warns Against Contact Lenses For Kids
(Undated) -- The FDA is warning parents that contact lenses aren't always the best option for their kids. Doctor Elias Traboulsi says age isn't the only factor to consider. The FDA says children are being treated in emergency rooms across the country for injuries related to contacts. The most common are infections and eye abrasions, which are caused by a lack of hygiene. Doctor Traboulsi says parents need to decide whether their child can handle the daily responsibility of contacts before allowing their children to use them.
