Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Contacts Lens Vs Traditional Glasses At Our Eyes First Vision Center in Middletown, NJ

If you need vision correction, visit our Eye First Vision Center in Middletown, NJ. Once we’ve evaluated your eyes, it’s time for you to decide: Do I want to wear contact lenses or eyeglasses? The decision is a personal one, and several factors may factor into it. To help you decide which you should go for, we’ve outlined a few of the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Contact Lenses


  • Contact lenses are more convenient if you play sports. You don’t have to worry about them falling off your face or getting broken when your face gets impacted.
  • You never have to worry about your contacts covering up your eye makeup or clashing with your outfit.
  • Contacts allow you a wider field of vision since they conform perfectly to your eye.
  • Your vision won’t get obscured when you come in from the cold or the rain because contact lenses don’t fog up like glasses do.


  • Not all eyes are a good fit for contacts. Usually, an optometrist will be able to determine this before you get contacts, but not always.
  • Contacts often lead to dry eyes.
  • Contact lenses require constant care. Improper care can lead to your contacts damaging your eyes.
  • Some people simply can’t manage to get contacts into their eyes.



  • Glasses are generally cheaper than contacts – especially since you don’t have to replace them nearly as often.
  • Eyeglasses don’t lead to irritation and dry eyes like contacts often do. They may even protect your eyes from the elements.
  • Frames can add to your style.


  • Frames also can clash with your style.
  • Glasses can fog up in certain weather.
  • You may get headaches from glasses because of how they press against your head and nose.
  • Your peripheral vision can get cut off with glasses.
  • Glasses aren’t very convenient if you play sports.
