Is it fine to wear a glasses all the day if I am short sight person. Is better to wear contact lenses?

Doesn't matter: You can wear either - doesn't matter. It's really a matter of personal choice and appearance. Contacts require more discipline in hygiene ; routine however. I started wearing glasses - initially when necessary but then all the time - for near-sightedness around your age. It will take time for your eyes to adjust ; u may have headaches initially but that will pass. Contacts also require adjustment. ...Read more

Is it normal for my vision to be blurry when I wear contacts?

No: Contact lenses are one method to correct the refractive error in your visual system (eyes) so that you can see more clearly. If your best corrected vision becomes more blurry with contacts then there is an issue. This is usually due to the wrong prescription, poor fit of the contacts, dry eyes, or intolerance to contacts.
