10 Reasons Contact Lenses Are Better Than Glasses

Are contact lenses better than glasses, we like to think so. Don’t get us wrong, contact lenses are not the perfect answer for everyone but they definitely have some great plus points.

1. Great vision
Not only is your vision corrected with contact lenses, but because the lens is placed directly on your eye there is no frame to impede your vision you get great unobstructed vision all around.

2. No one knows you are wearing them –
With contacts nothing gives away the fact you are short or long sighted and for older wearers no bifocal or varifocal glasses to give away your age.

3. Clear Vision
Say goodbye to smudges, once in your eye your clarity of vision is not compromised due to smudge marks, no hunting for tissues to clean the lenses, or scrunching the bottom of your shirt.


4. No pressure points-
With contact lenses you can say goodbye to  pressure points behind your ears and those unsightly red pressure patched on your nose.

5. They match everything-
Contact lenses match any outfit you have in your wardrobe, there is no longer the dilemma as to whether your glasses match your outfit, or the need to have more than one pair of glasses just in case.

6. No risk with sports-
Contact lenses won’t slip down your nose, fall off or pose a risk of breaking whilst participating in sports.


7. No misting-
Everyone hates glasses misting or fogging up when the temperature changes, either opening entering a warm room from the cold, just after an intensive work out or the oven door.
Contact lenses offer great vision all the time.


8. The option of great Sunglasses-
With contact lenses the whole range of sunglasses is open to you, simply pick the ones you love instead of being limited to the few pairs designed to go over your glasses – whoever found a pair of them they actually wanted to wear.

9. Change your eye colour-
Whether you wear daily or monthly contact lenses you can chose to change your eye colour completely or just enhance the beautiful peepers you already have.

10. Can treat medical conditions-
OK not for everyone but contact can be used to deliver medication to Glaucoma sufferers and also increasingly used to reshape the cornea while you sleep. Overnight orthokeratology  (Ortho-k) temporarily corrects myopia, so you can see clearly the next day without your glasses or contacts.

There could have been a point 11 as who knows the future of contact lenses, with augmented reality getting closer by the day we are sure contact lenses will be an important part of everyone’s life, whether they need to correct their vision or not.
