I believe a few of the advantages to wearing contact lenses are as follows:
Do not have to reach for a pair of glasses in the middle of the night to find and put your glasses on, let's say to make a trip to the bathroom.
Secondly wearing contact lenses makes many individuals look more appealing to others
Third reason is that contact lenses come in various tints or shades, therefore you are able to change your eye color by mix and matching contact lenses.
A few of the disadvantages of wearing contact lenses would be:
One of your contact lenses could fall out while playing sports, or even taking a swim at the beach. And this could be a disadvantage resulting in a possible embarrassing moment or two for the contact lense wearer.
Secondly if you lose a contact lense while driving this could result in an individual winding up in a serious vehicle accident, because of obscured vision in one of the eyes.
And third-constant wearing of contact lenses overtime can change the peripheral vision of your eyes, which in itself is a disadantage because your overall vision overtime from wearing contact lenses can worsen.
These are a few of the advantages and disadvantages of wearing contact lenses, however there are many other reasons to wear and not to wear contact lenses.
