Not All Glasses Are The Same, Neither Are All Contacts
Certainly, there are options in terms of ocular exercises that can help your vision. However, there’s a limit to all things. Think about it in biological terms. A shelty and a collie dog may have a puppy that’s bigger than a normal collie or smaller than a normal shelty. But there’s not enough variance there for a puppy the size of a horse or as tiny as a bug.
Your vision can definitely be enhanced by certain exercises and impacted by others. But you’ll never get vision so perfect you can focus your eyes in and report, in detail, what’s going on miles away. However, between ocular exercises and eyewear, you can find a happy medium that either retains a baseline or continuously improves over time.
So certainly, if you’re doing ocular exercises to enhance your vision, don’t stop. But similarly, don’t just rest satisfied with the first pair of glasses you find, or the first contact lenses you’re prescribed by your optometrist. Instead, explore around a little bit, know your options, and choose accordingly. Here we’ll briefly go over a few common eyewear options for context.
1. Leave-In Contacts
Extended-wear contact lenses are designed to be inserted into your eyes and left for an extended period of time. The thing is, you can certainly forget that you’re wearing them, and removing them can be a real hassle. Be sure you keep track of how long the contacts you’re wearing have been in your eyes to avoid unnecessary discomfort and vision risk.
That said, if you’re seeking an au naturel look, and you don’t want to have to think about it all the time, leave-in contacts may be the way to go.
2. Daily Contacts
Beyond long-term contact lenses, there are daily options. There’s an article comparing and contrasting the two. These tend to be a good option, but disposable lenses can be costly, and the daily rituals of inserting and removing them is not ideal for most people. That said, some still prefer going this route to simple, stylish glasses.
3. Traditional Eyeglasses
Perhaps the most convenient sort of eyewear is that which has been around since before Ben Franklin invented bifocals. Such glasses come in all varieties of shapes, sizes, colors, and prescriptions. It’s possible to find packaged deals as well. Some notable options at the optical shop are available, and they tend to fit the requirements of most who have needs in eyewear.
What you want to do is see the glasses that are most convenient and durable given your lifestyle. Some people don’t need eyewear that’s exceptionally robust. For others, if their glasses can’t take a beating, then they’ve got to buy a new pair every day. For most, there’s a happy medium between these extremes that will allow you to see clearly, and consistently.
If you spend more for more durable glasses, then you’ll spend less in the long run than if you simply order a hundred pairs of prescription glasses that are disposable at whatever their bulk rate is. It depends on your situation and resources, certainly.
Eyewear You Can Rely On
Disposable contact lenses, long-term contact lenses, and traditional glasses all represent fine options for your ocular needs.
There are also exercises you can explore to help you see more clearly at an organic level; though many don’t have the time, discipline, or inclination to go this route. Regardless of what works for you, look around a little before making a choice. You’re sure to find the perfect option if you just take your time.
