Contact lenses are very comfortable and a great alternative to wearing glasses particularly for sport, travel or social wear. They are also of benefit to patients with high prescriptions. Even if you wear contact lenses it is vitally important that you have a pair of spectacles as a “back up” when contact lenses cannot be worn because of eye infections, hay fever, etc..
No cleaning required, simply throw them away after one use and replace with a fresh pair. Ideal for social or sports wear or as an alternative to your glasses
