    People like to choose contacts between soft contact lenses and rgp contact lenses. Although many people prefer to wear soft contact lenses because the lens oxygen to pass through to the eye, soft contact lenses have their own disadvantage. Soft contact lenses do not offer very sharp vision as rgp contacts do. Besides, soft contacts may bring the risk of tearing a lens. I think everything has two sides. When it comes to choosing contact lenses, you can choose them according to their advantage and disadvantages and your preference.

    The soft contact lenses are made of hydrophilic plastics, thus they are soft to fit in the eyeball. They can be used for correcting many vision problems, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism. However, it's not easy to insert the soft lenses due to it's soft and thinner, thus it's also easy to break. Meanwhile, it's less durable and need to be replaced more frequently than others. In addition, people who wear soft contact lenses are more likely to get eye infection due to they are cleaned more carefully.

    Yes, it is true that soft contacts will give you better appearance and nice experience, but there are also disadvantages, for example, wearing contacts for the first time, you may fell uncomfortable and do not want to wear them any more, so it is going to take some time before you fully adapt yourself to contacts. If you continue to wear them, your eyes may be fatigued and even become sick because you have to keep your contacts clean and use hot water to wash your contact box on a regular basis. If you rely on them too much, it is possible that your cornea may be hurt.
