Here’s Why Contact Lenses are Your Best Bet...

Contact Lenses vs Glasses? Which one is your choice? While some people enjoy making a fashion statement with a variety of eyeglasses today, others still prefer their appearance without them.   Apart from cosmetic reasons, medically speaking, there are many advantages of contact lenses over spectacles. And we have got the reasons to believe that: Contact lenses, like eyeglasses or LASIK, can correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

When we asked Dr. Anil Kumar Mehrotra from Roorkee, a famous opthalmologist, he gave us a valuable insight saying: “When we talk about eyeglasses, the distance between the eye and the lens sometimes creates distortion, while on the other hand contact lenses, if worn in the right manner, give natural vision.” And then the insights came pouring in from Dr. Ravi Swarup Aggarwal from EyeQ Vision Muzaffarnagar: “Although eyeglasses may be the most convenient option, the major drawback with glasses is the poor peripheral vision while a contact lens would cover your entire field of view and everything stays in focus.” Contact lenses help a lot and are important while engaging in sports and driving, where one needs to see as much around them as possible. A person wearing spectacles would be constantly aware of frame and lens edge as well as the reflections off the backside of the lens. With contacts, no annoying obstructions or reflections are in view. There is an uncomfortable weight on your face and ears when you wear glasses. There is also a periodic need for tightening and other adjustments. Contacts on the other hand are comfortable to use and there is no frame constantly slipping down your nose. Every spectacles wearer knows...
