One of the most important decisions that blind people must make is wearing glasses or contact lenses. While eyeglasses complement certain styles, most people agree that contact lenses are the best option.

If you are not sure which option is right for you, consider these reasons why contact lenses are the best choice

1.You look good

Let’s face it…you look good. Why hide behind glasses?

2.Contact Lens are resistant to damage

One of the great advantages of contact lenses over glasses is that they do not break. Once you wear it, you can just forget about it. On the other hand, quality glasses may be expensive but fragile. Accidentally sitting on or dropping your glasses could break the frame or the lenses. You can also damage your glasses if you accidentally scratch them. Wearing glasses means spending a lot of time to protect them from harm.

3.Contact Lens are impervious to lens fog

If you wear glasses, you’ve likely experienced lens fog at one point or another. Simple conditions such as changes in temperature or rain are sufficient to fog the glass lenses.

With contact lenses, your vision does not change with rain or any other change in the weather. You don’t need to stop to clean your contact lenses just to see clearly.

4. Contact Lens fit any style

Some believe that some eyeglass frames complete the fashion. However, some people believe that glasses get in the way of their style. You may like your frame at first, but as your style evolves, you may want to switch to contact lenses.

Contact lenses do not contain thick lenses or awkward frames. No one will even know that you are wearing them because contact lenses are practically invisible. Contacts, especially colorless, will never clash with your wardrobe.

5.Contact Lens are more comfortable than glasses

The glasses are not very comfortable. It’s common for people who wear glasses to complain of headaches due to a change in prescription or their eyes adjust to changes in vision. Wearing glasses for long periods of time also irritates the bridge of the nose.

With contact lenses, there is nothing that can irritate the skin or cause a headache. Once you wear it, you will hardly notice that you are wearing it. There will be a short adjustment period the first time you wear your contact lenses, and you may find it difficult to put your contact lenses in. However, the discomfort is minimal.

6.They are convenient for sports and physical activities 

Wearing glasses hinders your performance and limits your mobility when exercising or doing physical activities. Some people are completely dependent on their glasses for vision, but glasses are not completely safe to wear while playing sports. For example, you cannot wear glasses while playing contact sports such as boxing, wrestling and other martial arts.

Contacts are the perfect solution for situations requiring intense physical activity.

Tips for moving to contact lenses

Like anything else, Contacts take a bit to get used to. If you want to make your adjustment period easier, consider the following tips:

      • Make sure your hands are clean.
        Keep in mind that whatever you hold in your hands, you are putting it between your contacts and your eyes. This is why you should always wash your hands before wearing or removing contact lenses. Keeping your hands clean before touching the lenses is the best way to avoid irritation or injury to the eyes.
      • Never change lenses between eyes.
        To avoid eye problems, make a conscious effort to keep each contact lens in its proper holder between uses. Mixing contact lenses can cause blurred vision and headaches.

Wear your contacts only according to their replacement schedule. 

Some wearers find contact lenses too expensive. This tempts the wearer to wear contact lenses for longer than the specified replacement schedule. Don’t make this mistake.

Wearing contact lenses for longer than the replacement program can cause eye irritation, infection, and serious corneal complications. To maintain eye health, wear contact lenses only on your scheduled schedule. For example, if you wear daily (daily) contact lenses, you should throw them out at the end of the day and start a new pair the next morning.

When practicing proper hygiene, contact lenses are great alternatives to eyeglasses. As long as you keep your hands clean, keep each contact lens in its holder and wear it according to a schedule, you will appreciate why so many people prefer contact lenses over glasses.


Switching from glasses to contact lenses is an easy transition that can set you free to enjoy all day activities with clearer vision.
