Contact lens vs glasses

Contact lens and glasses both are tools to make you see even better. Which is better? There is no argument as some people feels comfortable using glasses and some will choose contacts. Let list out the pros and cons for both so that you can decide which is more suitable for yourself.

Contact lens Pros

They give you more natural vision than glasses. They move with your eye, and nothing blocks what you see. They don't fog up or get wet when it's cold or rainy. Contacts don't get in the way when you play sports. 

Contact lens Cons

They need a lot more care than glasses. You have to clean and store them the right way. You can get serious eye infections if you don't clean your contacts well or don't wash your hands before handling them. If you have high astigmatism, your vision might get blurry when the lenses rotate.

Glasses Pros

Eyeglasses are easy. You put them on and go. You don't need special cleaning solutions, and they don't need much care. You can choose from a variety of frames to fit your style. If your vision stays the same, you don't have to change your glasses often. Also, you don't have to touch your eyes. You can easily take your glasses off and put them on any time you want.

Glasses Cons

They can distort vision, especially at the edge of the lens if you have a strong prescription or astigmatism. You may not like the weight of the glasses on your nose or the pressure on your ears. Some people don't like the way they look in glasses. A lot of people have trouble adjusting to progressive lenses. The lenses can fog up and get splattered in the rain. They may not be the best choice for sports or other activities.
