    For my experience , soft contacts are made of plastic-like material and are much more comfortable to wear and they are the best choice for most people . Hard lenses are uncomfortable and can fall out easily.But there are also some advantages over the soft lenses . They have better oxygen permeability than the soft ones and much easier to care .They can be used as long as 3 years if cared properly .Also they do a better job in vision correction than soft ones . For first time wearer ,it is better to choose the soft contacts as they are easy to get used to .

    soft contact lenses easily absorb remnants of soap and lotion from your hands, causing irritation in your eyes. You can get infected easily.

    Soft contact lenses that contain a higher concentration of water can be worn in the eye comfortably for longer periods of time than the hard contacts .
