In brief: Yes
Contact lenses are effective in correcting myopia, that is poor distance vision, however lasik surgery, while expensive, is very effective in eliminating the need for either eyeglasses or contact lenses.
The one draw back of correcting the distance vision with surgery is that then the need for reading glasses may happen sooner as the ability to focus close up is diminished after lasik surgery.
