Contact Lenses vs Traditional Glasses

Contact Lenses and Traditional Glasses

Getting either traditional glasses or contact lenses can be a big choice for many eye care patients. Which is best for correcting your vision? Both are great choices, and it often comes down to simple personal preference as to which one is best for you. If you live in or around Rohnert Park and are making the choice between contact and glasses, our optometrists at North Bay Optometric Vision Center are here to help.

Choosing Contact Lenses

There are many reasons that some patients choose to wear contact lenses. They are easy to wear, and they are highly convenient for people who don't want to have to clean glasses throughout the day. Some patients choose this solution because you don't have to think about them at all until it is time to take them out. They are also great for those who are highly physically active. Unlike glasses, contact lenses won't get foggy with exertion or fall off during sports or a workout.

Choosing Traditional Eyeglasses

For many patients, they are used to wearing glasses and want to continue wearing them. They may have a liking for the way they look, or they may simply like the way they function. They are also easy to take off and put on, and they don't need any special care at night as contact lenses do. There is no need to learn how to use them or how to care for them as contacts require in the beginning. They are convenient for people who may want to take them off anytime and anywhere, while contacts require you to have a case and solution available.
