Glasses

Requires plastic and wires

Glasses can slide down your nose, pinch behind your ears and leave marks on your nose

Vision is poor when glasses are not on.

Some patients find it very hard to see when they wake up and try to find their glasses.

Can be very unnerving especially if traveling or staying in an unfamiliar location

Do glasses make your eyes worse? Peripheral Hyperopic defocus Theory

Contacts

Can be difficult to handle, fold in half or put on inside out, sometimes rip

Eyes get dry and scratchy, vision can be inconsistent

Red eyes Some people wonder if you have been drinking or smoking

Stress on the environment with throwing away plastic daily.

According to a 2018 study published by a research team at the Arizona State University, contact lenses wearers in America flush down the drain up to approximately 2.9 billion contact lenses annually, the medical devices finding their way into the wastewater and then ultimately into the environment.

Lasik Eye Surgery

Can cause permanent irreversible damage. Millions and millions of dollars have been paid to people with poor outcomes that have to suffer for the rest of their lives.

Some people have been harmed so severely they have taken their own lives.

Dryness, night glare, halos, over treatment under treatment induced astigmatism, double vision, pain, are all potential side effects.

As we age your vision changes then you either have to wear glasses or try surgery again.

Contact lenses become more difficult to wear after lasik because the shape of your eye is no longer naturally curved.

Recent studies also show patients that have had lasik and now need cataract surgery are having a hard time getting the right focus after surgery, and may have to go back in for multiples tries to get it right.
