Colored Contact Lenses
Colored contact lenses are a fun and convenient way to change your look. They are perfect for enhancing your eyes on an everyday basis or transforming you into an alien, monster, or animal for Halloween or a Comic-Con event.
Choosing the Right Color for You
When it comes to color eye contacts, choose the colors that best suit your skin tone and hair color. For example, if you have cool skin tones, you should choose cool colored contacts such as blue or violet. On the other hand, warm skin tones should use warm colored contact lenses such as honey brown or hazel.
Colored Contact Lenses vs. Regular Contact Lenses: What’s the Difference
Just like regular contacts, colored contact lenses should be cleaned and moisturized frequently to prevent eye irritation and infection. You should also replace them as per your eye practitioner’s instructions, and never wear them overnight.
The first step is to make sure that you are a good candidate for colored contact lenses, and get a prescription from your eye doctor. It is illegal to sell these decorative lenses without a prescription from an eye doctor, so beware of disreputable vendors online and in beauty shops.
A good optometrist will check your eyes and fit you for the correct size of colored contacts. Getting a pair that fits properly lowers your risk of injury or damage.
Once you have the perfect colored contacts, take proper care of them just as you do with regular contacts. You should wash your hands thoroughly and dry them well before handling the contacts, and you should always use the contact solution that is recommended for your specific type of colored lenses.
