Contacts lenses work to direct and focus light to correct vision problems from astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. The lenses are usually made from some kind of soft plastic and are placed on the eye for full vision correction. Contacts have to be changed, cleaned and replaced intermittently as they wear out over time. They are not a permanent fix, but, similar to glasses, provide a corrective vision solution.
Over time, the cost of contacts can add up and have a continuous risk of infection if not properly cared for. Corrective surgery is a more permanent option that reduces or corrects visions and removes the need for other visual aids.
