Wearing contacts

At what age would you allow your child to get contacts? Would it be more about maturity than age? How young is too young to buy them contacts instead of glasses, in your opinion?

    I think it's a matter of maturity, not age. I've never worn contacts, but I've heard they require a lot of maintenance.
