Prescription glasses are a must to many of us, and for those who wear Hijab, know how hard it can be wearing Hijab and glasses at same time.
Contact lenses has gotten very popular and can be a good substitute for prescription glasses, however there are few things to consider when it comes to contact lenses, such as the risk of eye infections. Inserting a foreign object into your eyes, can lead to eye damage and infections, especially as contact lenses need super care daily.
Other things to consider is that contact lenses are easily to get lost, and let’s not forget the yearly exam that has to be done when wearing contact lenses; so after reading all these, I don’t think it is reasonable to wear contact lenses. Glasses are way more comfortable and even cost less.
When talking about Hijab and glasses, we want them to match well but same time not to feel annoyed or in pain as the glasses arms can really cause a headache if wore too tight under the Hijab. That’s why it is recommended to wear an underscarf so the glasses arms don’t touch directly your skin.
Big framed glasses are more of a fashionable item rather than a necessity. We don’t need super big frames to have a clearer view, but they do look trendy and if you like them, look at the style number 3.
Even though most of us prefer buying black framed glasses, some choose colorful ones. I like the colorful ones but as long as it is a beautiful color that will not be a problem when wearing your Hijab. As for example if you buy pink framed glasses, matching them with a yellow Hijab would make you look like a rainbow. Have a look at style number 4 and 6 for colorful and printed glasses frames.
