Both eyeglasses and contact lenses are good ways to see more clearly. So, which is the best? Both are great for clearer vision and each has its pros and cons. You should keep in mind your personal aesthetic, lifestyle, and preferences when you decide between them. If you want both, that can be arranged as well. Some people like to switch between them for convenience. If you live in or around Albuquerque and are deciding between glasses and contact lenses, contact Albuquerque Vision Care and Advanced Eyewear for help.
Wearing Contact Lenses
Many people love wearing contact lenses for the many benefits they provide. Of course, there is a learning curve when you learn how to use and handle them and it may take a little time to get them in and out rapidly. However, soon there is muscle memory and it will take just a second to handle them. Contact lenses can be very convenient to use when you don't want to give a lot of thought to your lenses throughout the day.
While glasses need frequent maintenance, such as adjusting and cleaning, contacts don't need any of that. Once you put them in, there's no need to even think about them until you take them out at bedtime. They're also great for active lifestyles. If you do vigorous exercise or play a sport, contact lenses are a great choice for those activities because they won't get knocked off or become fogged up.
Many people prefer to wear glasses for a variety of reasons. They are easy to use and many people love the way they look in glasses. Some people don't like the idea of touching their eyes and opt for eyeglasses for this reason. Others don't want the learning curve that comes from wearing contacts.
Some are afraid they may fall asleep in their contacts and find glasses to be a safer option for them. They are highly convenient and there's no problem with falling asleep in them. Traditional glasses are also a great way to express yourself through fashion.
