    Assalamu Alaykum,

    For a man who has myopia, which is better to wear according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact lenses?


    I know both are halal, but maybe one of them is better than the other?

    Re: For a man, which is better according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact len

    According to Islam both are the same and halal

    I wear non colored contacts for 8 years now and i really like them, as i don't like the concept of seeing the world through something which happens with glasses but both are fine and both are halal.

    Choose what is better for you and what makes you feel more comfortable.

    Both are permissible. It's up to the individual himself.

    Contact lenses and me don't seem to get on, they are nice, but after about a year I couldn't take them anymore.

    Ah well, I don't mind glasses. I've been wearing them for so long I don't look right without them now.

    Re: For a man, which is better according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact len

    Wa'alaikum as'salaam,


    One is better than the other, which one? that depends on each individual. Both have pros and cons. If you don't want to feel like looking at the world through a window and having to worry about misplacing them and cleaning them, etc then go with contacts. on the other hand if you need to switch between reading and seeing far (driving) or don't like the feeling of irritation that some get with contacts or the hassle of poking your eyes to put them in and taking them out every night then go with glasses. Either case, if this is your first time then try them both out and see which one you are more comfortable with.

    I fear having contact lenses. I imagine it be gore-like, where you pull scratch out your eyes in a bloody mess. :/ I therefore prefer glasses over lenses.

    You can get photochromic lens eyeglasses which look like regular sunglasses when you're out in the sun.

    Re: For a man, which is better according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact len

    Contact Lenses Advantages Contact Lenses Disadvantages
    ✔ Contacts conform to the curvature of your eye, providing a wider field of view and causing less vision distortions and obstructions than eyeglasses.

    ✔ Contact lenses don't get in the way when playing sports and exercising.

    ✔ Contact lenses won't clash with what you're wearing.

    ✔ Contacts typically aren't affected by weather conditions and won't fog up in cold weather like glasses.

    ✔ If you want to see how you would look with a different eye color, you can experiment with color contact lenses. You can even purchase special-effect contacts to match your Halloween or fancy dress costume!

    ✔ Some contact lenses can reshape your cornea while you sleep. Overnight orthokeratology(Ortho-k) temporarily correctsmyopia, so you can see clearly the next day without the need for glasses or contacts.
    ✖ Some people have trouble applying a contact lens to their eye (but proper technique and practice should rectify this in most cases).

    ✖ Contacts reduce the amount of oxygen reaching your eye and can cause or increase the severity ofdry eye syndrome.

    ✖ If you work at a computer often, wearing contact lenses will likely contribute to symptoms ofcomputer vision syndrome.

    ✖ Contacts require proper lens care and lens case cleaning each day, to avoid potentially serious eye infections. If you can't commit to the care and recommended replacement cycle of your contacts, consider daily disposables.

    ✖ If you accidentally fall asleep while wearing daily wear contacts, your eyes typically will be dry, gritty, red and irritated when you wake. If you find yourself frequently falling asleep with your contacts in, consider extended wear contact lenses — some extended wear contacts are approved for up to 30 days of continuous wear.

    Glasses Advantages Glasses Disadvantages
    ✔ Wearing glasses reduces the need to touch your eyes, which in turn reduces the likelihood of irritating your eyes or developing an eye infection.

    ✔ If you have dry or sensitive eyes, glasses won't exacerbate the problem like contact lenses can.

    ✔ Eyeglasses generally are cheaper than contact lenses over the long term. You don't need to replace glasses as often (unless you break them!) and if your prescription changes over time, you may be able to keep your current frames and just replace the lenses.

    ✔ Frames are fashionable and can speak volumes about your personality and style — the look of your glasses can make a bold statement.

    ✔ Glasses offer some protection from environmental factors such as wind, dust and debris.
    ✖ Eyeglasses sit about 12mm (about a half inch) from your eyes, so peripheral vision can be distorted. Many people also report difficulty focusing on objects andblurry vision when they first start wearing glasses or change prescriptions.

    ✖ Some people don't like how they look in glasses and feel it detracts from their facial aesthetics or hides their features.

    ✖ If you have a strong prescription, the edges of your lenses may be thick and unappealing or your glasses might make your eyes appear unnaturally minified or magnified.

    ✖ Eyeglasses can be affected by the elements — your vision can be obstructed or blurred by precipitation collecting on your lenses or when they fog up in cold weather.

    ✖ Some frames can exert constant pressure on your nose and behind your ears, leading to headaches and general discomfort.

    Re: For a man, which is better according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact len

    I used to use contact lenses... it is great when all is well. But irritation can occur. But my main problem is that I ride bike to work. I have had the unfortunate incident where dust gets in the eye and it is a real pain and hassle...


    Better with glasses.

    Both are good but with contact lenses you have to be sure that your hands are clean and follow certain steps to reduce the risk of contact lenses related infection. Contact lenses also can cause dry eyes and sometimes you have to use wetting eye drops frequently.

    Re: For a man, which is better according to Islam: glasses or non-colored contact len

    I am suppose to wear glasses but i choose not to.

    I think long term use of glasses weakens your eyes.

    That is just my opinion. I am not an eye specialist lol.
