Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses

Jan 11, 2019


If you require vision correction, you may wonder if you should opt for traditional eyeglasses or contact lenses. Making the decision regarding your vision correction tool is a personal one that requires some thought to ensure it is the best choice for your situation. Our staff at Urban Optics in College Station is ready to help you make this selection. Here is some information regarding the benefits of glasses and contact lenses to help you make your vision care choice.


The use of eyeglasses is convenient as there are no extensive cleaning processes entailed to receive vision correction. You simply need to grab your glasses and slide them on when needed. Glasses frames are available in any shade or pattern imaginable, as well as an array of shapes, giving you the ability to select a frames style that accentuates your facial features favorably.

Contact Lenses

Many enjoy wearing contact lenses as they give them the freedom to show off their face without any obscurement of any kind. Contact lenses come in a variety of colors, making it easy to change your appearance simply by inserting the shade you desire at the time. Contact lenses offer full coverage of vision correction to the front of your eye, allowing you to see sharply even when looking to the sides, up, or down. Glasses only offer vision correction within the realm of the lens.

Sports Goggles

If you engage in sporting activities or exercise regimens regularly, protecting your eyes during these events is important, especially if there is a chance of impact from a ball, disc, or another person. It is wise to invest in a pair of sporting goggles to help keep your eyes safe. Prescription lenses are used to ensure you have a crisp, clear view of your surroundings while giving you the peace of mind that your eyes have a layer of protection while engaging in your activities.
