Contacts

Why Would I Want to Consider Contacts?

There are a number of reasons why people – young and old – prefer contacts to eyeglasses:

  • As would be imagined, cosmetic benefits are very important to many people. With contacts there is no perception of a refractive vision problem, as there is with the wearing of eyeglasses, because contacts are invisible to the observing person.
  • Contacts also eliminate such eyeglass problems as sore ears, slippage, steamed-over-lenses, poor fit, scratched lenses and accidents that can cause damage to the frame or lenses. When contact lenses are properly fitted and maintained, the wearer has no sensation of having a foreign object placed on the surface of his or her eye.
  • Contact lenses are usually much better suited to active lifestyles, particularly those that include outdoor sports and physical recreational pursuits.
  • Contact lenses can usually provide the same types of corrections that are offered by eyeglasses, but with more comfort and often with greater effectiveness, particularly with respect to peripheral vision, which is partially blocked by eyeglass frames.

What are the Disadvantages of Contacts?

A thorough examination by your eye doctor is essential before contact lenses can be recommended and prescribed. There may be certain conditions that may prevent you from being a contact lens candidate.
