For all those who use the excuse of not being able to work because of those big frames on your face – be warned you can no longer blame your glasses! Indeed, working out has become a bit of a favourite pastime for many, what with the Summer Olympics 5 months ago. It has certainly inspired me to get a bit more active and try new sports and activities. But you never see an athlete with glasses on do you? That’s because it is incredibly difficult to do any form of activity with glasses on and well if you are ok to manage without then that’s great for you but doesn’t necessarily work out for everyone. If you are pretty much blind without your trusted specs then it can sometime be dangerous to do your favourite activities especially if these are done outdoors.
Glasses, although nowadays available in all kinds of colours and designs, are not the most convenient items to wear during sports and athletics. They can shift uncomfortably on the face as you move around, or even fall off and become damaged. Glasses, especially designer ones, can be extremely costly to repair or replace. The best way to avoid this kind of problem is to wear contact lenses instead. You don’t have to choose between glasses and contacts forever – lots of people own both – and switch between the two depending on what the situation demands. Whilst glasses are great for everyday wear, having a pair of contacts that you can pop in for sports and athletics is extremely useful. No need for big protective eye wear, you can look both hot and sexy when you are working out.
Contact lenses are growing ever more popular with glasses wearers. They can be used in all kinds of situations. Swimming is one of the best examples of the versatility of contact lenses – they can be worn underneath standard goggles so that you still see when at the pool. The only alternatives that provide the same effect can be extremely costly – prescription goggles or even laser eye surgery. Contact lenses are cheaper, quicker, and much more flexible in their usage.
