Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

If you have an eye condition that affects your vision, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you likely need corrective lenses to see more clearly. Should you pick contact lenses or eyeglasses? No matter which you pick, we can help at our Chehalis, WA, office.

Contact Lenses

Many people like to wear contact lenses because they find them easy to use and convenient when they are on the go. They also do not need to be cleaned throughout the day as eyeglasses do. However, contacts can take some getting used to. Inserting and removing them takes some time to learn, but over time inserting contact lenses becomes second nature. Depending on the type of contact lenses you get, they may be worn anywhere from one day to a full year per pair. Many people choose daily contacts so that little to no care is needed- they are worn once and then thrown away. Many people choose contacts because they dislike what they look like in glasses.


Eyeglasses are the traditional choice, and there are plenty of benefits to wearing eyeglasses. They do require some care and cleaning throughout the day, but they are easy to take off and put back on no matter where you are. Many people also love the way they look, seeing eyeglasses as fashion statements. They are also easier for some people to wear due to dry eye or other conditions. They may also be more comfortable than contacts when viewing screens for long hours.
