Around a hundred million people all over the globe wear contact lenses. What then make contact lenses a popular choice?
Contact lenses give the wearer a wide field of view. Because contact lenses rest directly on the cornea of the eye, distortion is reduced. There is more natural vision and things appear as they should in size and position. Contact lenses give the wearer a real life vision. They provide a whole range of vision. A wearer can move his eyes and still see clearly. Contact lenses stay fixed in place on the eyes, even during fast body movements. Vision is still crystal clear and precise. Contact lenses when fitted correctly can be truly comfortable. Unlike glasses, there are no heavy or thick frames to bother a wearer. With contact lenses, no more fogging up when drinking soup or coming out of an air-conditioned room. Nobody has to find out the user is wearing contact lenses unless he says so. Contact lenses do not slide down the nose or rub against the ears as glasses do. With all these comfort and convenience, no wonder an increasing number of people are opting for contact lenses.
