pros and cons of wearing contact lenses instead of glasses?

See below: Glasses - easier to use, no risk to eyes. Contacts - cheaper than glasses in most cases, have to put into eyes, have to clean, have to replace, better peripheral vision and better for most sports and activities, better cosmesis, risk of infection if not used properly.
