Contacts can help to correct mild astigmatism which may not always be corrected as accurately by glasses. But they can't be worn if you have dry eyes. Progressive lenses are a pain since there is no correct spot to look through them and if they don't sit squarely on your face all the time you end up with a bad prescription. I recommend cataract laser surgery to fix it all. Or get a pair of distance glasses plus reading plus sunglasses and then you don't have enough pockets or a big enough purse.
