Winter is no more a problem for people with vision defects that are afraid they will have troubles during the coldest and darkest period of the year. In fact, contact lenses are the best alternative to corrective glasses and a solution for who complaints about frequently fogged up and dirty glasses when it snows, rains and it is windy. Moreover, people with vision defects should prepare themselves to winter properly by protecting eyes from sun rays and other natural factors that can damage their vision. Therefore, it is important to select proper contact lenses and utilize them to replace glasses because of several reasons.
The trump cards of contact lenses on winter
First of all, contact lenses do not fog up with changes in temperature. This occurs because there is no difference between the temperature of contact lenses and the one of human body. Contact lenses are installed on the eyeball, whereas corrective glasses fog up when users move from cold open-air places to acclimatized closed ones as the temperature changes suddenly. Moreover, contact lenses do not freeze, as the movements of the eyeball heat the contact lenses and keep them warm. Therefore, contact lenses must not be stored at temperatures below 0 Celsius degrees.
The lack of annoying reflections in view is another trump card of contact lenses, as almost all types of contact lenses neutralize the 85% of the damaging sun rays the snow reflects to eyes, dazzling users in so doing. Although the impact of damaging sun rays with eyes is a problem tied to all the seasons of the year, it is more accentuated on winter because of snow. Therefore, it is important to utilize contact lenses with UV filter in order to protect eyes from damaging sun rays and correct vision defects at the same time.
Contact lenses are the best solution for who practices winter sports such as skying, snowboarding, hockey, sledging and curling, as they provide users with stability within the eyes, keen vision, protection from fogging up, freezing and sun rays. Users can also utilize the contact lenses along with goggles in order to further improve the quality of vision.
Contact lenses to provide users with active lifestyle
Finally, contact lenses are resistant to the gathering of impurities and proteins tied to precipitations. Contact lenses also provide users with a broader field of vision than the one corrective glasses provide users with, because of the absence of any frames that make vision more difficult.
On the contrary, glasses are not the most proper item for who wants to keep an active lifestyle on winter. Glasses fog up with changes in temperature and freeze, provide users with awareness of reflections off the backside of the lenses and distract them while practicing sports. Glasses are also an unnatural barrier between the eyes and the world annoying to wear in rain or snow.
Contact lenses are the best item for winter season. However, it is necessary to consult an oculist prior to purchase any pair of contact lenses.
