Contact Lenses Improve Eyesight? True Or False…

Last Reviewed: January 2, 2020

When contact lenses first came out, people thought they were the greatest things ever invented. Everybody thought that contact lenses improve eyesight, but do they really?

Back in my days with glasses, they were the hard lenses that you had to take out and put in the solution every night. Now they have soft lenses, disposable daily lenses, and even different colored lenses. So people want to wear contacts for fashionable reasons… (there are much healthier ways to truly change the colour of your eyes, but that's a discussion for another day.)

Pro's and Con's of Contact Lenses

Everybody wanted contacts because people don't know that you are wearing corrective lenses. Also, the problem with fuzzy peripheral vision like you have with glasses doesn't seem to exist.

The downside of contacts is pretty nasty though. They cause dry, irritated eyes, and cause eye infections quite easily. Not to mention that they also dent your wallet a fair bit. It's particularly annoying when you lose one. It's like looking for a needle in the haystack, isn't it.

But Do Contact Lenses Improve Eyesight?

Let's define "improve"! Google defines it as "make or become better".

To me that means that your eyes are getting better. Meaning that the strength of your contact prescription goes down over time.

Sadly, the same like with glasses, contact lenses don't improve your eyesight. To the contrary, they make it worse.

How can I say that? Well, when was the last time you got a lower prescription? Usually you get a higher one, don't you. So the lenses are harming your eyes more than doing any good.

The Problem of Every Lens

To Contact to improve eyesight you have to follow a holistic vision improvement method with it. And even for that I'd recommend to use glasses for that process.

If you don't start your vision improvement journey, your eyes will get weaker, as they do for every person that is wearing glasses or contacts.

The real issue with contact lenses, I and don't believe that contact lenses improve eyesight, is that they sit right on your eyes. They irritate your eyes. It's like a foreign body in your eyes all day long.

It restricts the exposure to the air, it messes with your state of mind, and it offsets the delicate balance of mucus, oil, and water in your eyes.

What's The Solution?

The bottom line is, contacts are worse your eyes than glasses, and glasses are bad. Your vision doesn't improve in fact, it just keeps getting worse.
