Contact lenses or Eyglasses?

I'm currently wearing contact lenses for I want to look younger.LOL. I used to wear eyeglasses but when it was time to upgrade, I shifted to contact lenses, around two years ago. That was when our wedding was approaching. I didn't like to wear eyeglasses during the wedding ceremony. I wanted to look really beautiful without those eyeglasses. Usually, my contact lense lifespan is one year, so that means I need to change my contact lense again soon . But I'm having a second thought of buying a new one. I'm becoming lazy in putting on my contact lenses whenever I'm home. I only wear it whenever I go for work or go out to my daughter's pedia for check - up or go to the grocery store. And my dilemma comes in when my daughter wants me to sing her nursery songs on videoke at home. I cannot read those letters on TV even in a distance of about 6 - 8 meters! I have not yet memorized all 50 songs in her CD.

I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons between wearing contact lenses and eyeglasses:

Advantages of wearing contact lenses

->Contacts dont fog up during rain
->I look better and younger with contact lenses

->It requires more time for maintenance
->I should adhere to my wearing schedules
->The expenses for the contact lens solution

Advantages of glasses:

->Glasses offer eye protection whenever I'm in places in which debris and fumes may be an issue.
->Any time that I'm in a hazardous environment that needs eye protection, glasses come in handy.
->Easy to wear

->The frames of glasses block my peripheral vision
->It becomes foggy during the rain
->Makes me look older

So now I already have these pros and cons but I'm still confused and can't decide yet. Contact lenses or eyeglasses? What can you say?

  1. hi, visiting you here too... have a great weekend!

  2. I always said I would never wear contacts because the thought of putting them in my eye made me squeamish. But 13 years ago I began having real problems seeing. My astigmatism had gotten much worse. A topographical test of one of my eyes looked like a mountain range! Anyway, I ended up with rigid contacts. I love them because I see so much better when I wear them. Now my fear is that someday I may have to stop wearing them.

    If you only wear them to look younger, maybe you should look for more stylish frames. Glasses can be quite fashionable! Good luck with your decision.
