Contact Lenses vs. Prescription Glasses

If you need a little help making this important decision, contact our team at Spadafora & Zak Eye Care to schedule an eye exam and find the vision correction method that works for you.

Prescription Glasses

Glasses are a great way to correct your vision. They are a classic method that has a lot of fans around the world. Many people wear prescription glasses instead of contact lenses because they like the way they look. They also like that they are simple to care for and that they work well to correct vision. Many people like to express themselves through their choice of glasses frames and they can have a big impact on a person's look. They need to be cleaned periodically most days, but they do not need any special care at night. Many people also like prescription glasses because it means they do not have to touch their eyes.

Prescription Contacts

Contact lenses are quite popular because they provide a full visual field that includes their peripheral vision. They do take some time to get used to handling, but after that they are simple to put in and take out, requiring just seconds to do either. With contacts, it is often easier to engage in activities like playing sports or going to the gym. These activities will not cause your contacts to fog up or fall out as they can with glasses. Contacts generally do not need cleaning during the day, and you can virtually forget about them until it is time to remove them before bedtime.
