What's a good age to start wearing contacts?

I am 13 and I wear glasses >.< and I really would like to start wearing contacts but my parents are saying "your eyes are still changing and too much responsibility and blah blah blah" but I have a cousin that's 12 and she wears contacts. So should I begin to wear contacts or should I wait until I'm a bit older?

I started wearing my contacts when I was twelve. It's a bit weird to take them out and put them in at first, but you don't even think about it after a while. It's just very important for you to be responsible enough to clean them properly and not lose or rip them :)

I would say 13 or 14, if you don't mind touching your eye. :)

Me 2! I just got braces and don't want to be nerdy. But keep in mind that they are expensive! That was my entire x-mas gift and if you lose em...you're screwed. Up to the decision you and your parents make
