Why Choose Contact Lenses Instead of Glasses?

14th Jun 2016

Many people in Australia wear contact lenses, but an equal number aren’t sure whether they should use them. They wonder about whether they are safe to wear and whether they will be comfortable. These fears are totally unfounded, and you just have to ask a regular contact lenses user what their experience with using lenses has been.

Most first time users are very pleasantly surprised when they use contact lenses for the very first time. When you opt for good quality lens brands you will find them to be extremely comfortable and won’t be able to discern that you are wearing them. Take a look at why you should opt for contact lenses instead of glasses:

  • Appearance- While glasses do suit some people; they don’t flatter everyone’s appearance. Contact lenses are an excellent option for those who can’t carry the glasses look well. You can easily order contact lenses online, based on your prescription and they will be delivered to your home. You can choose to get different coloured lenses and that adds cosmetic value too. Contact lenses help let the natural attractiveness of your eyes shine through and that is an added benefit.
  • Convenience- This is probably one of the major plus points of wearing contact lenses. You don’t really have to worry about your glasses getting smudged, foggy, dirty or wet. It can be quite cumbersome to wear glasses and it’s only when you begin wearing contact lenses that you realise what a significant difference it can make. Once you wear them in the morning, you don’t have to give them a second thought till the time you get back from work in the evening. Current day contact lenses are made with advanced technology and they won’t dry out for up to 12 hours, when you are wearing them.
  • Cleaning and Regular Care- Some people are under the impression that it’s very difficult to clean and maintain contact lenses. That is nothing more than a fallacy. You only have to clean them before you actually wear them and then once when you take them out. All you need is a good multipurpose solution to clean & store your lenses in. Regular cleaning of lenses is important, to keep germs and debris at bay.
  • Sports & Activities - It’s extremely difficult to play a sport with glasses on. As a matter of fact, it can be impossible to play contact sports such as rugby or any martial art or even sports like volleyball etc. At times like these, glasses can be extremely burdensome and it’s much better to wear contact lenses instead. They are extremely safe to use & won’t be a hindrance to your activity; and very importantly, you don’t have to be concerned about them when you are playing the sport.
