One of the most common questions patients ask us is, "are glasses or contacts best for me?" Of course, this varies from one patient to the next, and there are specific factors worth keeping in mind.

Pros and Cons of Contact Lenses in West Des Moines

There are many benefits to wearing contact lenses in West Des Moines, such as the fact that contact lenses can be worn without anybody even noticing. Because they fit seamlessly onto the eyes rather than being worn on the face, they're also less susceptible to damage and can be worn while playing sports or partaking in other activities. They're a great option for those who may not like how they look in traditional glasses.

On the other hand, contacts are also not suitable for everybody, as a contact lens exam will be recommended to determine if they're right for you. They also tend to be more expensive than traditional glasses and require more maintenance and care.

Pros and Cons of Wearing Glasses

Eyeglasses are a great option for those who want to make a fashion statement with their eyewear; they also tend to be more affordable than contact lenses are more likely to be covered by insurance. Glasses come in a variety of styles and in a range of lenses (including anti-glare and blue-light-blocking) to suit your needs. However, they may be impractical to wear while playing sports or may be prone to breakage if you're not careful.

  • "Had an exam yesterday, everyone was very nice. I also had my rowdy 3-year old and they were so patient as he was very curious to what was going on, they had crayons and paper for him. Dr. Katie was who I saw and she explained everything so well I had no problem understanding what she was telling me. I was impressed with how quickly I was able to see her since this was my first visit and check in went quickly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a comfortable atmosphere."
