Not only is your vision corrected with contact lenses, but because the lens is placed directly on your eye there is no frame to impede your vision you get great unobstructed vision all around.

8. The option of great Sunglasses
With contact lenses the whole range of sunglasses is open to you, simply pick the ones you love instead of being limited to the few pairs designed to go over your glasses - whoever found a pair of them they actually wanted to wear.

9. Change your eye colour
Whether you wear daily or monthly contact lenses you can chose to change your eye colour completely or just enhance the beautiful peepers you already have.

10. Treat medical conditions
OK not for everyone but contact can be used to deliver medication to Glaucoma sufferers and also increasingly used to reshape the cornea while you sleep. Overnight orthokeratology (Ortho-k) temporarily corrects myopia, so you can see clearly the next day without your glasses or contacts.
There could have been a point 11 as who knows the future of contact lenses, with augmented reality getting closer by the day we are sure contact lenses will be an important part of everyone's life, whether they need to correct their vision or not.
