Not everyone is blessed with perfect vision. Some people prefer glasses, others prefer contacts.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both contacts and glasses.
Contacts sit directly in your eye, particularly peripheral vision is unobstructed.
Some disadvantages or problems are eye stinging, itching, irritating or other eye pain. Abnormal feeling of something in the eye. They can damage your eyes if you wear them too long, and you can get an eye infection.
"I prefer contacts because when you try to do anything sporty as in running or other things they won't fall or break." said, Miranda Contreras.
Other people think the same way as Miranda.
"I prefer contacts because you can do more physical things." said, Chad Tiffin.
Eyeglasses offer many more benefits over contact lenses, they require very little cleaning and maintenance, decreases your risk for eye infection and cheaper because you don't have to replace them.
Disadvantages of glasses is that some find them inconvenient, uncomfortable, and annoying, they tend to fog up in humid or cold environments. They can also be broken or lost.
"I prefer glasses because contacts scare me." said, Joselyn Gonzalez.
Many people have different viewpoints between both choices, but as long as you feel comfortable with what you're using is all that matters.
