Contact lenses can be a great, affordable device that can free you from the need to wear glasses all of the time.  They can be worn to correct vision problems and can be worn simply for cosmetics.  It is important to remember though that contact lenses are prescription medical devices!  They must be fitted, worn and cared for properly for ensure safety and to maximize vision.  Contact lenses may not be right for everyone so it is important that you seek eye care from a doctor who can save you time, money and headaches by prescribing you the right contact lenses the first time.
