With all the heat, you may find that your glasses are fogging up, sliding down your nose, or trapping sweat that can irritate your skin. If so, contact lenses, worn full time or even just occasionally, may prove to be a liberating experience.

Contact lenses can come in handy during this time of year, especially when you engage in sports activities such as tennis, softball, soccer and lacrosse. When you wear contact lenses you don't have to worry about your field of vision being obstructed or distorted as it would when wearing glasses. In addition, wearing contact lenses can reduce your risk of eye injury, should your face be hit.

Contact lenses can correct vision for those who have nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism. Even people who require bifocal glasses can enjoy the benefits of a multifocal contact lens.
