For people who need to wear prescription lenses, it is
always a choice between getting a pair of eyeglasses or committing to a year supply
of disposable contact lenses.
Now here’s what we think.
You can never go wrong
The following are seven reasons why people should opt
for prescription eyeglasses over contact lenses.
are low-maintenance. All you need is a little microfiber cloth to wipe off the
smudge every now and that’s it. Contact lenses, on the other hand, needs
constant cleaning. You have to keep eye lubricant drops with you at all times
in case your eyes dry out. You also have to get a reliable disinfectant liquid
to make sure your contacts are fully sanitized. Moreover, you got to store your
contacts in a case with contact lens solution to provide moisture for soft
contact lenses. It’s actually a lot of work if you’re just getting used to it.
lenses are quite tricky to put in and take out especially if you’re new to the
whole process. A lot of people need to face in front of the mirror to successfully
wear them on and off. It can take a few second for some and a minute or two for
newbies. Another problem with contacts is that you can easily switch the left
and right lenses without realizing it until it gets uncomfortable. This is
especially annoying if you have a completely different prescription for your
right and left eye. Furthermore, contact lenses are quite a hassle especially in
times when you’re running late. Eyeglasses, on the other hand, can be worn as
simple as putting on a hat. It’s basically a one-step process that needs no
instruction manual or demonstration.
are relatively cheaper than contact lenses considering that soft contacts have
to be replaced every month or so depending on how frequent you wear them. Most contact
lenses are disposal so no matter how careful you are with them or even if your
prescription has not change, you still have to toss them out into the trash.
lenses are terrifying. If you have ever tried wearing them before, you would
understand how uncomfortable it is to stick a foreign object inside your eye.
The process of it is not a pretty sight for the spectators, too. You see, in
order to insert it, you have to open your lids as wide as you can and stare at those
little blood vessels popping out while you go in to wear the lenses. Eyeglasses
are simple, easy, and you can wear it on with poise.
who wear contact lenses on the regular are more prone to eye problems compared
to people who wear eyeglasses. For example, those
who wear contact lenses have a higher
risk for keratitis which is basically an infected cornea, also known as corneal
ulcers. Wearing contacts also makes you more prone to pinkeye or conjunctivitis.
Good hygiene decreases the risk of these infections.
are capable of improving your visual performance by controlling or adjusting
the amount of light your eyes receive. Photochromic lenses are lenses with
clear transparency indoors and during the night. They go a shade darker as they
get more exposure to sunlight. This type of lenses provides a lot of comfort
and versatility. Photochromic lenses can also block ultraviolet rays that
cannot be done better by any kind of contact lenses. Eyeglasses cover the
entirety of the eyes and not just the pupils so they are able to protect the
white part and the lids.
