Contact lenses are a convenient way to see clearly without the need for eyeglasses. Many people prefer contact lenses, but for some it is not the most ideal option. At the offices of Michael Vathanasaynee, O.D., we offer eye lenses North Las Vegas and eyeglasses for patients who need vision correction.
Most of the choice lies in whether patients prefer to wear them based on their lifestyle. Comfort and convenience are a big factor in wearing eye lenses North Las Vegas. Aesthetics can be a factor as well. Both forms of vision correction are great for enhancing vision, and no one form is better than the other. The pros of eyeglasses are that they’re cheaper than contact lenses, and don’t need as much maintenance. They also cannot cause eye bacteria like contacts do. Glasses are also a good way to make a fashion statement. The cons of glasses are that they are visible and some people don’t like that. They also can get dirty, and need to be cleaned. They can get in the way of playing sports or driving in glare or sunlight. Vision can be obstructed due to the way glasses sit on the nose, or cause headaches and pressure on the bridge of the nose.
The advantages that contact lenses have are that they’re inside the eye, with no obstructions. Those who wear contact eye lenses North Las Vegas can play sports and do outdoor activities easily while wearing contacts. Also, wearers can change the color of their eyes with colored contact lenses. Contacts also provide a wider field of vision. They won’t clash with clothe, either. The cons of contacts are that they can be hard to get used to and can be hard to put inside the eye. It’s a learning curve. Contacts can also cause dry eye syndrome by reducing the amount of oxygen that reaches the eye.
