If you’ve recently found out that you will have to start wearing
eyeglasses to correct your vision, it is likely that you are feeling
apprehensive and maybe even a little scared. Worries about how you
will look with the glasses or how much they will cost are normal.
You should know, however, that there are actually many benefits
eyeglasses. In fact, a great deal of people prefer and
choose them over
contacts. Here are some of the
common benefits and these will hopefully ease your mind about the process
of becoming a
First, you should know that wearing
glasses is much more cost effective
than wearing contacts. With glasses, you simply make one purchase,
and you will not have to replace them unless they break or your
prescription changes. Many
eyeglass companies also provide a warranty,
so that you can have your glasses replaced free of charge in the
event that they break or are stolen. Contacts, on the other hand,
have to be purchased in bulk every three to six months, causing
the charges associated with them to quickly skyrocket. If you’re
looking for a cheaper way to correct your vision, eyeglasses is the
way to go.
Another great benefit of eyeglasses is how easy they are to clean.
Unless you use expensive
disposable contacts, these products must
be soaked and cleaned daily. When glasses become smudged or dirty,
all you have to do is wipe them down quickly with a cloth. Also,
you can clean your glasses at any time and in any place. Contacts
require a lot more diligence and hard work.
You must also think of all the fashionable fun you can have with
eyeglasses. You can
buy glasses in any color or style imaginable,
and they can be an easy way to change your look or add a bit of
flair to your favorite outfit. You can also purchase prescription
sunglasses, so that you won’t have to miss out on any of the
protective and fashion qualities of wearing sunglasses.
Finally, glasses are able to correct many vision problems that
contacts cannot. You should talk to your doctor about all of your
options for correcting your vision, but be sure to keep in mind
all of the wonderful benefits of choosing glasses. Also check with
your insurance provider so that you have a clear idea of which glasses
are covered by your insurance. This will save you money and leave
you happier in the long run!
