If you are deciding between contact lenses and eyeglasses, you are not alone. It is a difficult decision that many people have to make when it is time to get their vision corrected. If you need either of these methods for clearer vision, contact Cascade Eyecare in Bend to speak with our eye doctor or to schedule an eye exam.

Wearing Contact Lenses

For those who have an active lifestyle, wearing contact lenses is often the better choice. When engaging in strenuous activities, no one wants to worry about losing their glasses or having them get broken. People who play sports often opt for contacts for this reason. It can be a safer way to engage in these activities and to see clearly.

Wearing Eyeglasses

For many people, wearing contacts is simply not a good option. For those who don’t like the idea of taking them out and putting them in, eyeglasses can be a better choice. It can also be a good choice for those who fall asleep easily. Before sleeping, contacts have to be taken out, and this can be a lot of hassle for those who want to take a few quick naps throughout the week. Glasses are removed very quickly and easily, so those who need to do so will likely do better with glasses.

Wearing Both

One choice that many people make is to get both eyeglasses and contact lenses. This allows them to use contact lenses for active days and glasses for more restful days if they wish. It also allows them to have a backup method of vision correction if one gets damaged.
