Contacts and eyeglasses each have their unique advantages, and some people have trouble deciding which type of corrective eyewear would work best for their particular needs and preferences. In today’s post, Vienne Eyecare Center explains the features and benefits of both options to help you make your decision.
Pros of Using Contact Lenses
Contact lenses offer convenience and improved visual comfort. They are directly applied on your eyes, giving you an unobstructed view of your surroundings, while also letting you enjoy a feeling of “normalcy” since they aren’t visible on your face.
Contact lenses have recommended replacement schedules to safeguard your eyes from infection. With proper care, they will give those with active lifestyles the sharp eyesight they need.
Perks of Wearing Eyeglasses
Eyeglasses are an equally great alternative; they provide unmatched visual clarity and enhanced protection from wind, dust, and debris. Our eyeglasses are available in different materials depending on your needs and preferences. Our glass lenses offer unmatched visual clarity, while our plastic and polycarbonate lenses provide extreme durability.
We have a wide range of lens types to address your specific eye care needs based on the results of your comprehensive eye exam. Our toric lenses, for example, are designed to prevent astigmatism. We may suggest applying special coatings too, like photochromic layers, to prevent UV rays from damaging your eyes.
Not only do eyeglasses offer crisp vision—they are also a fun fashion accessory that you can use to highlight your personal style. Our experienced optometrists can help you find frames that complement your facial features.
