Contact Lenses VS Glasses: Which is Right For You!
- Contacts sit directly on your eye, providing better peripheral vision.
- Contact lenses won’t get in the way when you’re playing sports and won’t fog up in the cold.
- Color contact lenses let you experiment with different eye colors.
- Contacts won’t ever clash with what you’re wearing.
- Contact lenses require regular cleaning to avoid eye infections. (Tip: If you cannot commit to proper lens care, consider daily disposables.)
- Contacts may be difficult for some people to insert and remove from their eyes.
- Contacts can contribute to red eyes and dryness. If you work at a computer, contact lenses may cause symptoms of computer vision syndrome.
- Wearing glasses poses less risk for eye infections and dry, irritated eyes.
- Eyeglasses can be more economical because they don’t require frequent replacement.
- Frames can help project your personality and make a stylish fashion statement.
- Glasses require less maintenance and are easy to put on and take off.
- Since glasses sit away from your eyes, your peripheral vision can be compromised.
- Some people don’t like the way they look in glasses or find them uncomfortable to wear.
- If you have a strong prescription, your lenses may be thick and unappealing or make your eyes appear larger or smaller than normal.
- Eyeglasses can make it difficult to play certain sports and can fog up in cold weather.
