Nevertheless, we will consider several factors before deciding on whether you require contact lenses, eyeglasses, or eye surgery. Note that every vision correction solution has its pros and cons. Factors like your personal preference, lifestyle, daily activities, and health also come into play when deciding which option to choose.
For example, if your lifestyle involves playing sports, certain lenses or glasses may not be ideal for you because they can get damaged.
