Are Contacts Better Than Glasses?

Are Contacts Better Than Glasses?

When an eye doctor detects the need for vision correction, the two primary options are glasses or contact lenses. Usually, both options are available depending on your prescription and personal preference. Which option is the best? Our optometrists at North Bay Optometric Vision Center in Rohnert Park will help you weigh the differences between the two options and make sure you are happy with your decision.

Choosing Glasses

Many people choose glasses because they are perceived as easier to take care of, and in many ways,  they are. Caring for glasses requires cleaning the lenses occasionally. As soon as you want them off, you can easily remove them and place them just about anywhere. However, many people find glasses to be annoying to wear and dislike seeing the edges of the frames. If you live in a very humid area, glasses can be annoying in the summer when they get fogged up. Some people like them for the way they look, enjoying the fashion statement they make. With these pros and cons, glasses are right for some patients and not for others.

Choosing Contact Lenses

For some people, contacts are an easy choice. Contact lenses are a bit more complicated to properly maintain. Contacts need to be cared for daily and left in a case of contact solution to clean them when not in use. People who wear contacts generally get into the habit easily and it eventually becomes lessss difficult. However, some people don't like to get their fingers close to their eyes and can't handle the squeamish factor.
