Everyday Health:How do I know if glasses or contacts are best for me?
Ed Melman, OD:In most cases it is a personal choice that should be decided with your eye doctor. Some corrections, especially mild ones, are best corrected with glasses since they can be fine-tuned more precisely. Generally speaking, the stronger the correction, the greater the advantage of contacts. Contacts are also better for anything requiring better peripheral vision, such as sports and most outside activities, or environmentally challenging fields such as refrigeration workers or cooks who often find that their glasses fog up.
Jeffrey Cooper, OD:Refractive errors can be corrected using glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. Glasses are the least expensive and the safest modality. As a matter of fact, glasses provide physical protection, like a seat belt, to the eye. However, contact lenses offer a safe modality to provide clearer vision without the associated problems of glasses (decrease in peripheral vision, poorer vision, glasses falling off, etc.). Recently, there has been a resurgence in orthokeratology, using contact lenses to temporarily mold the shape of the cornea. Theses lenses are used at night and removed in the morning. The patient enjoys glasses-free and contact-lens-free vision during the day. In addition, there is strong evidence that these lenses dramatically slow the progression of myopia. Determination of which is best is based upon your lifestyle and your eyes and by talking to your eye doctor.
Stephen Rozenberg, OD:Your eyesight, the nature of your prescription, and your lifestyle are the main factors in determining whether contact lenses or glasses are best for you.
Andrea P. Thau, OD:Nearly everyone can be a contact-lens wearer! Most people prefer contact lenses over eyeglasses because they afford better peripheral vision. They are great for active people. Every contact-lens wearer needs to own backup eyeglasses, though, since there are times when you can’t wear contact lenses: such as when you are sick, if you will be swimming, or if you have an eye infection. Your doctor of optometry can help determine which contact-lens options are best for you.
