Why Summer in Hertfordshire is a Great Time to Try Contact Lenses

With summer in Hertfordshire already on its way, many people are now preparing for the warmer months. From summer clothes to a new haircut, summer is often the best time to try something different, and for many people it’s a good season to get rid of their glasses and try contact lenses instead. If you’ve never tried contacts and are feeling a little nervous, here are some reasons why you should take the plunge.

No need to wear glasses on hot days

Hertfordshire can suffer the brunt of heatwaves in the UK, and this means high temperatures and uncomfortable humidity. Any glasses wearer will know that itchy, sweaty feeling on your noses from wearing your frames all day, and those with thick frames can even find they end up with white sun tan lines. Switching to contacts makes your face feel light and free, so no more need to wear heavy frames on hot days.

Enjoy summer sports

Any sports enthusiast who wears glasses will know that they get in the way. You often have to choose between wearing your glasses or going on a run with imperfect vision. Contact lenses are excellent for those who like summer sports such as:

  • Tennis
  • Running
  • Football
  • Rugby

Swimming is also popular during the summer months, with some great outdoor pools in Hertfordshire, but if you wear your contact lenses to swim you should always wear high-quality, tight-fitting goggles to keep water away from your eyes. You can also get prescription goggles made, which allows you to enjoy water sports while still having perfect vision.

You can wear any sunglasses

Sunglasses are an essential summer accessory, and while you can get sunglasses made with prescription lenses, some people like to have lots of style options. Wear contact lenses, and you can wear Tom Ford Sunglasses or any style you fancy over the top. So, whether you prefer designer frames or want something colourful, you have lots of different ways to accessorise. There’s also none of the hassle of having to carry around two glasses cases or having to switch between the two.

Daily contacts make travel easy

It wouldn’t be summer without jetting off somewhere sunny, but with liquid restrictions on planes, many people don’t want to take bottles of cleaning fluid abroad with them. Speak to your optician to discuss switching to daily disposables, which ensure there’s no need to carry cases or cleaning products in your luggage, simply throw out the lenses at the end of each day.

They give you a whole new look

Want to try a different look for summer? Switching to contacts often makes people look very different, and it’s an easy thing to change about yourself. Some people even think it makes their face look more youthful, as it’s not overwhelmed by your frames.
