Switching to glasses can let the eyes breathe 

Contact lenses cover the cornea of the eyes, which decreases the oxygen supply. When the oxygen supply is not sufficient from overwear of contact lenses or other factors, such as sleeping in contact lenses, hypoxia can occur which leads to red eyes, discomfort, temporary blurred vision, and inflammation. This also increases your chances of getting an eye infection, which can be serious. These are rare occurrences, but if you are worried about it, switching to glasses can allow your eyes to breathe and be ventilated.

You can create a signature style for yourself 

While eyeglasses offer you vision correction, they can also be used to create a signature style for yourself. Is your style preppy, hipster, classic, bohemian, high-fashion, or a rocker? Do you have your own unique look? When you start wearing glasses, you can play up and define your unique style.

You will have more freedom 

Wearing contact lenses adds another level of care and planning to your daily routine. With contacts, you have to make sure you are keeping them clean and cleaning them properly. You also have to worry about if they will fall out when you are doing your daily tasks. With glasses, you know they are on your face, you can remove them with ease, and you can carry them in a hardshell case to keep them safe.  

There are many reasons why you would want to switch from contacts to glasses. There are also a lot of reasons for the latter. At Mountain Eye Care, we can be your one-stop-shop for vision correction.
