How do I know if contacts are right for me?
If you appreciate an improvement in vision when using glasses, but wish you could see well without them, contacts are worth considering. Contact lenses are available to correct most people's vision, including people with astigmatism and those who need correction for both distance and near. You must be willing to touch your eye to insert and remove the contacts; this become easier with practice. Contact lenses are not difficult to use and care for, but you must do so properly to avoid increasing your risk for infection or other complications.
