The Pros and Cons of Contact Lenses

contact lenses from Lens.comA few years ago, I made the switch to contact lenses after using glasses my whole life. I feel I am now in a position to objectively review some of the pros and cons of using contact lenses. Therefore, in this article, I will be discussing what I like and don't like about contacts, while also offering a way to purchase them cheaply online by using Lens.com coupons.


First let's start with the positives. Contact lenses allow you to see much better than glasses, especially where peripheral vision is concerned. They are also a lot more comfortable and do not slide down your nose or fall off as easily. And most people feel that they look better without glasses, an opinion that I agree with. If you are active, you'll find that contact lenses are a lot more convenient when you are playing sports. And lastly, contacts do not fog up or get dirty, requiring you to wipe them.


But there are some negatives to contacts as well. I feel my eyes get drier more easily. And in some cases, your eyes can get irritated, especially if something gets stuck between your contact lenses and your eye. Such problems, however, are usually fixed easily. The main issue for me is the price of contact lenses. Although the price of contact lenses depends on what brand you use, in almost all cases, you will likely be paying more to wear contact lenses than you would to wear glasses.


There are ways, however, to purchase contact lenses cheaply. The best way to get a good deal on contact lenses is to order them over the Internet. Most online contact lens shops will offer a pretty good price, but I particularly like a store called Lens.com. The reason is that their prices are lower than most other stores based on my research. You can really get great deals if you use Lens.com coupons, which can be found on various coupon websites such as couponleaf.com. In addition to offering a competitive price, Lens.com also has very good service. I've never had a problem receiving my lenses quickly. In short, they are a reliable, affordable contact lens store that you can use to reduce the amount of money you spend each year.
