Contact Lenses vs Traditional Glasses

When you have the choice between wearing contact lenses and glasses, you may have a hard time making the decision. There are benefits and drawbacks to each of these choices, and you need to consider your lifestyle when making the choice. Our team at Eagle Vision Eye Clinic in Longmont is here to help when you are making the choice between contacts and glasses. Let’s take a closer look at these options.

Wearing Glasses

When you choose glasses, a lot of benefits come with them. You can take them off and put them on easily and without having to learn how to do so. You can take them off whenever you like, wherever you are. This can be a great benefit when you like to fall asleep in front of the TV or when you travel and might want a nap. However, glasses need to be cleaned often, and some people don't like doing it. If you like the way glasses look, you aren't alone. Many people choose them because they like the way they look in them.

Wearing Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a little more complicated to put in and take out, and many people don't like that. However, there are also several great benefits to wearing them. They don't have to be cleaned during the day or maintained at all while you wear them. When you have contacts in, you don't see a frame in your visual field as you do with glasses. Contact lenses are great for people who are highly active and don't want to worry about their glasses falling off or getting broken during workouts or playing sports. They also won't fog up as glasses do.
