Contacts Lenses versus Traditional Glasses

14 Jun, 2021 |

If you need vision correction, there are plenty of options that will help you see clearly. The most popular of these are contact lenses and eyeglasses. It's common to choose between these two methods, though it may be a hard choice. If you are interested in either glasses or contacts, North Bay Eye Associates can help. Serving Healdsburg, Petaluma, Sonoma, and Santa Rosa, CA, we will help you determine what form of vision correction is best for you.

Choosing Contact Lenses

When you consider contact lenses, they make a lot of sense for a number of lifestyles. If you are often on the go and don't want to stop to clean your glasses, you may like contacts better. Contacts take very little maintenance, and they are perfect for active lifestyles. If you exercise often, play sports, or engage in outdoor activities, glasses can fog up and even fall off. Contact lenses will stay in place and won't get foggy in the heat. Many people like the way they don't have to think about their contacts until it is time to take them out.

Choosing Eyeglasses

There are many people who don't like handling contact lenses and don't like the idea of touching their eye. This is a common issue that drives many people to choose to wear glasses. It is also far easier to remove glasses than it is to take out contacts. For those who travel, they may want to wear glasses because they can fall asleep during travel without needing contact solutions and a case. Eyeglasses can be easily removed and stored anywhere.
