10 reasons to wear contact lenses

Approximately 3 out of 4 Americans admit to having some visual problem that prevents them from enjoying perfect vision. However, there are studies that highlight that the sense that is most important in the population is sight. In this sense, a question arises: why do those people who admit they have deficiencies in their vision do nothing to remedy it?

Contact lenses are an ideal method to compensate for these refractive defects (such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, eyestrain or presbyopia …) since, through the appropriate prescription and adaptation of the optician-optometrist, it allows the user to have a visual acuity of 100 % in the most convenient and comfortable way possible.

Contact lenses are an ideal method to compensate for refractive errors in vision
