Contact Lens vs Traditional Glasses

If you have a vision prescription, you may be choosing between contact lenses and traditional glasses for daily wear. But first, you need a vision exam. At The Center for Eye Care and Optical, we have provided West Islip residents with glasses and contact exams for many years. Following an exam, you can get the vision correction method that is right for you and your lifestyle.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are easy to wear and are highly convenient. It can take a little time to get used to handling them, but they are simple to use after that. They are a vision correction method that you don't generally have to think about during the day as you wear them. Wearing them doesn't take the frequent cleaning that is needed with glasses. And, they are great to wear when you're engaging in vigorous activity. If you like to work out, play sports, etc., you don't have to worry about contact lenses falling off as glasses can do. They also won't get foggy with exertion. With one-day contact lenses, you will not need to worry about caring for your lenses and can replace them every morning.

Traditional Glasses

If you don't like the idea of handling contacts, glasses might be right for you. After your contact exam, you get to choose your glasses. Many people love the way they look in glasses and like picking out the perfect pair. Glasses are also very simple to put on and remove, and there are no supplies needed to do it. You can also fall asleep in them if you choose. We will help you choose glasses that suit your medical needs and personal style preferences.
