Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Prudhomme Vision Discusses Contact Lenses Vs. Glasses

If you need corrective lenses, it can be hard to decide whether contact lenses or glasses make the most sense for your lifestyle. Our Manchester optometrist at Prudhomme Vision can help you find the right eyeglasses or contact lenses for you, no matter which you choose.

Contact Lenses Vs. Glasses

If you live an active lifestyle, contact lenses may make the most sense for your needs. When you wear contacts, you don’t have to worry about glasses slipping off of your face or getting broken during a workout. One exception: if you’re a swimmer, you will not be able to wear contact lenses in the water. If you feel squeamish about putting contact lenses in your eyes, don’t worry! One of our contact lens fit specialists will be able to help you learn how to properly insert your contacts. When they’re placed in your eyes correctly, you won’t even be able to feel them.


Only need vision correction in certain circumstances, such as reading or while driving? In that case, it might make the most sense to stick with eyeglasses. While contacts are great, they can be a pain to remove, disinfect, and store, especially if you have to go through that process more than once a day. Eyeglasses are much easier to take on and off, and you don’t have to worry about washing your hands or using a mirror to remove them.

Most people who wear contact lenses wear eyeglasses at least some of the time. It’s ok to switch back and forth between the two if that’s what makes the most sense for your lifestyle.
