As many children are seeing their eye doctor for their annual eye exams before school starts, many are considering contact lenses in addition to their glasses. Contact lenses have several benefits over glasses.
Better peripheral vision is attained with contact lenses. It is not possible to look out beyond the edge of the lens with contact lenses as it is with glasses. This can be very helpful when playing sports like football and basketball.
Glasses lenses tend to fog when going from cold to warm environments or when the wearer is hot and sweating. This does not happen with contact lenses. Contact lenses also won’t slide down the end of your nose when sweating, like glasses can.
Better vision is attainable with strong prescriptions with contact lenses. Glasses lenses will magnify or minimize the image seen when the prescription is high, while true image size is attained with contact lenses.
While contact lenses may not be for everybody, they do have benefits beyond just cosmetic advantages.
