If your vision needs correcting but you don’t like the idea of wearing glasses every day, contact lenses are a great option.
There are many benefits of wearing contacts from Pure Optical or other trusted suppliers, that you might not be aware of – here are just a few to consider.
They Can Target Specific Issues
One of the advantages of contact lenses is that, like prescription glasses, they can work to correct refractive errors like astigmatism or short-sightedness. There are lenses designed to target specific issues, so if you’re struggling with a problem, lenses are still a solution you can turn to to resolve it.
Lenses are Comfortable to Wear
Many people think they will feel contact lenses when they’re on their eyes, but that’s not true. Modern lenses are incredibly soft and flexible, so they adapt to the shape of your eye for a really comfortable fit that you won’t notice.
There are rigid and soft lenses available, which are designed to maintain proper eye health and comfort, as well as a hybrid option that has a durable centre for crisper vision and a softer edge that makes them really comfortable to wear for longer periods.
Your Peripheral Vision Becomes Clearer
Contact lenses conform to the curvature of your eye, so you actually achieve a wider field of view with them and less distortion than with glasses. You also don’t have to worry about glare reflections which can be a problem for glasses wearers.
The result is a much clearer and broader field of vision than you might have experienced previously with spectacles.
They Fit Active Lifestyles
Glasses are convenient, but they can be a burden if you’re someone who likes to play sports or keep active. They’re prone to falling off or slipping down your nose, and they can fog up or obscure your vision when it rains.
With contact lenses, none of this is an issue – you’ll continue to be able to see clearly regardless of what you’re doing or where you are. There’s also no risk of you misplacing your contact lenses and struggling to find them, as you’ll be wearing them throughout the entire day.
They Offer Brilliant Aesthetic Benefits
A lot of people don’t like the way they look in glasses, so if you want to eliminate frames entirely, lenses are a great alternative. They’re less invasive, expensive and far safer than refractive surgery, so they’re an option that most people can experiment with without as much risk.
The Process of Adaptation is Quick
One of the main benefits of wearing lenses is that adapting to the routine of wearing them is quicker than most people think it will be.
Contact lenses can make some people nervous to begin with but once you realise just how quick and hassle-free it is to put them in and take them out each day, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make the switch sooner. There are lens types to suit different lifestyles so it’s worth researching what’s available to you that best suits your needs.
