Wearing contact lenses can help to enhance people's confidence by offering them an alternative to bulky frames and enabling them to have a more natural appearance, it has been found.
A recent poll of 2,500 contact lens wearers, revealed that most people prefer wearing them not only from a convenience and comfort standpoint, but because they feel more confident without wearing glasses.
According to the UK-wide survey, only ten per cent of people said they find others more attractive wearing glasses than contact lenses.
Some 40 per cent of respondents said they were put off people wearing glasses as they could not see their eyes, while many contact lens wearers said they would not consider any other form of vision correction, due to their multiple benefits.
Ashley Mealor, who was behind the survey, commented: "Geek Chic has become the trend amongst the catwalks, but we weren't surprised to find that customers feel more confident wearing contact lenses."
