Glasses, are no longer something you’re stuck with if you have poor eyesight. Today, you have several kinds of contact lenses to choose from. The only challenge is the right pair of lenses for you.
Not every person can wear certain types of contact lenses. For example, the wearer may have severe dry eye or other conditions that would prevent the wearer from receiving contact lenses.
Finding out if you can wear contacts is easy; go see an ophthalmologist. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to decide between glasses and contacts.
