They may not seem like it but contact lenses actually help your eyes function better by providing oxygen. You can wear contact lenses simply for cosmetic purposes or for medical reasons. There are contact lenses for any lifestyle. There are contact lenses for those who work over 12-hour shifts to those who play contact sports. Contacts can be a great solution if you have trouble seeing up close or far away because there is a contact lens out there to meet your needs. So, why should you start wearing contacts?

1. You can save money on your contact lenses.

Contacts are designed to be replaced every day, every 2 weeks, or every month. It is better for contact lenses to be replaced often because contact lenses that are not sterile can harbor bacteria and lead to corneal ulcers. Bacteria can actually burrow into the contact lens material and cause damage to your eye. Using contact lenses longer than recommended increases your chances of getting a corneal ulcer.

2. You can show off your style.

Although contact lenses come in many colours, the number of colours is endless with contact lenses! There are contact lenses that mimic every colour of eyes and even some that glow in the dark or change colors depending on your surroundings.

3. You can add more variety to your wardrobe.

Contact lenses for every occasion from contact lenses that mimic the color of your eyes to contact lenses with a design on them such as hearts or stars, contact lenses have something for everyone! If you like wearing contacts and would like an array of contact colors and designs, contact lenses are a great option.

4. Your contact lenses won’t get in the way of your life.

Wearing contact lenses will not take away from your everyday activities! You can wear contact lenses while being active and playing contact sports without worry. Because contact lenses provide oxygen to your eyes, they do not dry your eyes out and cause them to be itchy. Instead, contact lenses keep your eyes comfortable and safe.
