The biggest perk of contact lenses is they provide unobstructed vision. Unlike glasses, contact lenses will not be splattered with rain or mud, and they won't get oily, smudged, or smeared. Contact lenses move with the eye for a natural field of view without distortions or frames that obstruct vision. This makes lenses a good choice for sports and other activities because you do not need to worry about glasses getting in the way, breaking, or falling off.

Eyeglasses, on the other hand, sit about half an inch away from the eyes which can distort peripheral vision. Some individuals also notice blurry vision and trouble focusing on objects when first wearing glasses. The frames will typically always be visible to some extent, depending on the style of the glasses.
