Choosing Contact Lenses
Why would you choose to wear contacts? There are many benefits to this vision-correction option. Contact lenses can take a little time to get used to, especially taking them out and putting them in, After a trial period, they become easier to handle. Many people like that you can insert them in the morning and not have to touch them or even think about them for the rest of the day. With contacts, you don’t have to see a glasses frame in your vision. You get full peripheral vision as well as frontal vision.
There are also benefits to wearing eyeglasses. The ease of putting them on and taking them off is a selling point for many wearers. They also like that you can take them off no matter where they are, and no solution or case is required. There is no need to get used to them or to practice the skill of putting them on as there is with the contact lenses. Many people do not want to touch their eyes. For some, they are a bit squeamish about their eyes and would not be good candidates for wearing contact lenses.
