Glasses vs Contact Lenses: Part One

People tend to stick with what they know and like best, but when it comes to glasses or contact lenses, it’s important to use both.

Glasses and contact lenses each have their benefits, so people should take advantage of them. Oftentimes, contact wearers are afraid that glasses won’t look good on them, and glasses wearers are scared to put in contacts or may even think that contacts will cause eye infections. However, despite many people’s caution regarding contacts, they are seen by many as a fantastic solution for imperfect vision. With that being said, if you are interested in investing in some contact lenses of your own, you might want to have a look at somewhere like カラコン韓国, as they have a wide selection of many contact lenses that could help improve your vision without forcing you to wear glasses.

While all of these scenarios could happen, you can reap the benefits and feel comfortable wearing both contact lenses and glasses with assistance from trained and experienced individuals in the eyewear industry.

Today, we’re going to chat with Rebecca Allen, an eyewear architect, about her love for glasses and her process of learning to use and enjoy contact lenses.

Glasses or contacts?

R: I have always loved glasses, and before working at Eclectic Eye, I would’ve never thought of contact lenses as an option. Thanks to the awesome team at Eclectic Eye, I now wear both glasses and contacts.

Why glasses?

R: For me, glasses have always been an easy and fashionable accessory. It’s fun to mix up an outfit with a stylish pair of glasses!


How did you overcome your fear of contact lenses?

R: I used to be terrified to even watch someone put in contacts. When I began studying for my ABO test, I needed to learn how to use them, so I began learning from my co-workers and watching the process. About a week later, I was able to do it and realized it’s not as scary as I thought.

When is it more beneficial to wear contacts?

R: Although contact lenses will never be a replacement for my glasses, they do have their benefits. They don’t get in the way when playing sports and exercising, won’t fog up in cold weather, and you can find out what you look like with different eye colors by using color contact lenses! It’s not nearly as scary as it looks, so if you’re hesitant like I was, come by Eclectic Eye and we’ll help you out.

Next up, we’ll talk to contact lens wearer Lindsay Dotson about her journey to find great glasses. Stay tuned!
