Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses: Helping You Decide Which One Is The Best For You

The need for corrective lenses to improve vision is very real for most of us. And, for the vast majority of poor-sighted individuals, their choice to wear contacts or glasses comes down to personal preference. At Century Eye Care in Hawthrone and Gardena, our ophthalmology professionals can help facilitate your decision faster by offering pertinent information on each consideration.

Reasons to Purchase Contact Lenses

Many people prefer wearing contact lenses over traditional eyeglasses for many reasons. Contacts allow them to lead a high-impact lifestyle without hindrance. They are fit precisely on the eye’s cornea to help provide a wider field of vision, which is ideal in outdoor activities. Contact lenses offer no threat of breaking when someone is actively participating in competitive sports. Finally, they will not obstruct vision like eyeglasses and are typically ideal during certain weather conditions.

Advantages of Wearing Traditional Eyeglasses

A couple of immediate advantages to wearing traditional eyeglasses are that they offer wearers good health, clear sight, and a dazzling appearance each day of their lives. Eyeglasses also limit the amount of sunlight coming directly into your eyes and protect your eyes from debris. Unlike contact lenses, glasses rarely cause severe health concerns, like pink eye and other eye irritations. Eyeglasses are even available in many places and are cheaper than contact lenses.
