People who often play sports and are physically active prefer contact lenses to glasses, the latest report on contact lens use suggests.
According to Nick Dash, a renowned optometrist specialising in sports vision, physically active people and athletes tend to choose contact lenses because they give them a feeling of freedom, excellent vision at every possible angle and a much wider field of vision, which seems significantly more natural. In addition, contact lenses are usually considered to be the safest vision correction option for athletes and sports enthusiasts due to the wider field of vision they offer and the fact that they do not get dirty as easily as glasses, which often leads to injuries. What is more, contact lens wearers are not subject to such annoying things as glasses falling off and breaking.
The expert added that a recently published research report shows that more than 25 per cent of all contact lens users wear contacts mostly because of their advantages related to sports.
