Are Contact Lenses Right For You?

By: Amuro Wesley

If you need vision correction and are wondering if contact lenses are a good alternative for you, there are a few things you need to take into consideration.

Think about your lifestyle. For example, do you participate in any sports? If you jog, do aerobics, or other jarring sports, you will likely find glasses cumbersome. They will have a tendency to slip and fall off, or you will have to purchase a strap to keep them on.

Even then, they may fog up when you sweat or sweat may drip onto them. Contact lenses will save you all this trouble. You will be able to see clearly without worrying about them falling off.

If you play contact sports like basketball, rugby or soccer, it is not appropriate to wear glasses. But if you are a professional wimmer contact lenses may not be a good choice since you could lose them if you open your eyes underwater.

Another factor to bear in mind is maintenance. Glasses tend to get smudged and need to cleaned occasionally to optimize your ability to see through them.

But keeping contact lenses clean is critical not only for your vision, but for your health as well. If you do not make an effort to clean your lenses properly and regularly, you are putting yourself at a risk of eye infection that could possibly leave you partially blind which cannot be cured.

Though using disposable contact lenses can eliminate your effort in cleaning them everyday, you still need to make sure that your hands are clean before inserting the lens into your eyes. The same goes for your lens as well. If you hate this process, then contact lens may not be for you.

The quality of vision correction is one area where contact lenses are superior to glasses no matter who you are. Since the lens part of contact lenses sits directly on your eye and covers the seeing part of your eye completely, you will have corrected vision all around.

Including to the top, bottom, and sides whereas with glasses, there is no correction for your peripheral vision. That can be problematic for activities like driving or if the quality of your vision is important in your profession.

Speak to your eye care health professional or doctor about your options. They should be able to explain the pros and cons and help you make the best informed choice.
