Contact lenses offer a number of improvements over glasses, a writer has stated.
In a piece for Article Mania, Deepak Kumar pointed out that contact lenses offer style advantages, as wearers do not have to worry about their glasses not co-ordinating with their clothes.
He observed that contact lenses free people from having anything on their face.
Mr Kumar stressed the importance of maintaining proper hygiene procedures when handling contact lenses.
He also noted, however, that people not wishing to deal with the inconvenience should consider wearing daily disposable lenses.
Another advantage to contact lenses is being able to wear them with sunglasses or protective goggles if one enjoys sports.
Laser eye surgery firm Ultralase recently pointed out that amateur sportspeople could benefit from not needing glasses if they wear protective goggles.
The company noted that both contact lenses or laser treatment are potential solutions.
