Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Contacts Lens and Traditional Glasses

Getting a vision prescription allows you to get the type of vision correction that will work best for you and your lifestyle. You might choose to wear eyeglasses, or you may opt for contact lenses, depending on your personal preferences. Each of these methods comes with its benefits and drawbacks. Both can give you excellent and effective vision correction. If you need eyeglasses or contact lenses in Glendale, AZ, the optometry professionals at Family Eyecare of Glendale are ready to assist you.

Wearing Traditional Eyeglasses

Eyeglasses are a classic for a reason. They look great when they are chosen well, and they are great at allowing you to see them as clearly as possible. They're super easy to wear and to take care of, and it doesn't take any practice to do so. They do need frequent cleaning and adjusting on your nose, though. Many people choose them because they don't want to put their fingers near their eyes. Others choose them because they like their look when wearing glasses.

Wearing Contact Lenses

If you don't like the look of wearing glasses, or you don't like seeing the frame of the glasses in your visual field, contact lenses are another great choice. They do take a little time to practice using them, but people soon get used to the process. After that, they are easy and highly convenient for many people. If you spend a lot of time outdoors or play a sport, contact lenses are often a helpful choice because they won't fog or get knocked off. Many people prefer them for exercise as well. They don't need cleaning during the day, and they don't need to be adjusted when you're wearing them.
