Contacts or Eyeglasses?

Contacts or Eyeglasses?

It can be difficult to decide between contact lenses and eyeglasses, and it is important to take your lifestyle into account before you decide. Contacts may be perfect for some activities while eyeglasses may be better for others. If you need either of these vision correction methods, contact Eye-Site of Boynton Beach to schedule an appointment for an eye exam.

Contact Lenses

Contacts are well known for their versatility and their convenience when you are on the go. After they are put in, they need little to no maintenance to help you see clearly all day. They are great to use for high-energy activities such as playing sports. They won't fog up like eyeglasses, so they are perfect for wearing on hot, steamy days. When you are on the go and need a way to see clearly without needing to clean or readjust your glasses, contact lenses are an excellent choice.


There are plenty of times when glasses are more convenient to wear than contacts. If you are in a place that does not have space and the opportunity to insert or remove your contacts, eyeglasses can be a better choice. For activities like camping where you won't always have the chance to wash your hands and a little place to put your contacts, many people prefer to wear glasses.

Glasses can also be better when you want to unexpectedly take a nap and snooze on the couch. This prevents you from having to jump up and take out your contacts before falling asleep. It is much simpler to remove your glasses and it can be done in seconds wherever you are.
