The Difference between Contact Lenses & Eyeglasses

  1. 1. The Difference between Contact Lenses & EyeglassesRapidly advancing technology has made it possible for those with visionproblems to choose from a big variety of eye glasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses and more. Each has its own benefits andshortcomings and it is important to choose the right option based onspecific needs as it involves the eyes’ health. The eye doctor also offersadvice based on the eyes’ condition. In some cases, contact lenses can bemore appropriate while eye glasses can be the right choice in others.
  2. 2. Here is a look at the differences between Calgary contact lenses andeyeglasses in Calgary: • Contact lenses are worn directly on the eye, resulting in natural vision while eyeglasses are worn in a frame, often causing vision distortion due to the distance between the eye and the glass. Because of this contact lenses are better for people needing high powered correction. • Eyeglasses can cause peripheral vision problems while contact lenses mean focused vision which can be significant in sports and driving • Eyeglasses make you conscious of the frame and lens and the reflection from the lens. This is not a problem with contact lenses. • Some people find eyeglasses cumbersome as they have to be adjusted periodically. Also, the lens can become foggy when the temperature changes. Contact lenses are free from this. • With contact lenses you can wear any outfit, while eyeglasses can clash with certain clothes. • Designer eyeglasses can be worn as fashion accessories, while with contact lenses the options are limited. • Certain eye problems such as astigmatism, unequal vision, and extreme far and near sight can be rectified only with contact lenses. Only eyeglasses can be worn for certain eye conditions such as dry eye and wet eye. • As far as comfort is concerned, contact lenses take some getting used to, although it is easy to adapt in time. Eyeglasses are easier to get used to. • Cost wise, contact lenses can be more expensive than eye glasses depending on the type of contact lenses used.
