Use eyeglasses: Contacts are a convenience which allow for good sight without the need for eyeglasses. If you see better without them, they are not a requirement. If your ophthalmolgist has been advised about your difficulty, perhaps a better fit can be found. Otherwise consider regular eyeglass use.
