Contact lenses or glasses?
Glasses can be worn by people of all ages, and are less expensive than contact lenses. However, they may get in the way of some types of work, and they fog up in humid or cold weather. Some people find them uncomfortable or unattractive to wear.
Contact lenses give better side vision than glasses, and come in a wide range to meet individual needs. Some people prefer the way they look to glasses. However, contact lenses may need cleaning and disinfecting (if they are not disposable), and they require care in insertion and removal. Also, they can cause infection, dry eyes, and scratches of the cornea.
