Glasses are certainly a modern day miracle. For individuals who have gone for years trying to make out something in the distance, it is so exciting the first time they are able to see clearly. Glasses can also be frustrating and inconvenient in a lot of situations, though. That’s why contact lenses have become so popular. People don’t want to have to deal with glasses all the time.
That’s why we’ve explained the top 3 reasons for considering contact lenses.
1. If you are active, glasses can be such a hassle to try to work with. If you run, bike, swim, or participate in other physical activity, glasses may be uncomfortable, or you may not be able to wear them. There is no need to sacrifice clear vision to be active, though.
2. Not that looks are all that matter, but most people prefer how they look without glasses. Wearing contacts makes it less obvious that you have vision problems.
3. Glasses can amplify the brightness of the sun and create an additional glare for your eyes. There are some glasses that will tint in the sunlight, and there are other ways to shade your eyes even if you are wearing glasses. However, it is much nicer when you can just put on sunglasses without having to wear them over glasses.
Some of our patients worry that they will have a hard time sticking something in their eye every morning, but it really is not a difficult learning curve. For all the benefits that contact lenses offer, you will soon realize that for such a small barrier, it is definitely worth learning how to wear contacts. You will enjoy a lot more comfort, and it will become a seamless routine for you.
