Any of us can consider a look change to make us feel better, to present ourselves in a better light, to make our life more fun and interesting, and a more and more popular way these days is by changing our appearance with colored contact lenses. These simple devices can make your eyes more vibrant, stand out more, and the abundance of models on the market, with the increased comfort and safety of the new models make them so beloved by people. You are not limited anymore now to just changing your hair color, or nails, but also your eyes, without any problems, if this is done properly. It is important to always consider that these are medical devices, and you should consider the same safety measures as you would buy regular contact lenses, for vision correction.
Actually, the good part is cosmetic colored contacts can also have corrective properties as well, so this way you can play with your look even when you wear them for medical purposes. So please consider a doctor visit and a prescription when deciding to wear cosmetic contacts. You have the opportunity of potentially discovering an existing affliction you didn’t know about, and the peace of mind you got the best advice and proper guidance when buying your first contacts.
Getting your contacts from a reputable source is also important, as quality offers you both safety and better visual results. When it comes to the main differences between lenses, they can be split into two main categories. You have on one hand translucent lenses, that cover your iris with a see-through layer that will enhance your eyes color and look, making them look more vibrant. On the other hand, if you want to completely change the color of your eyes, or go with an artistic halloween, alien like appearance, then you need to choose contacts that are opaque. They will completely cover the color of your iris, so yo won’t have to take into consideration anymore the color of your eyes.
Another factor to take into consideration is the period of time you can wear your contacts. Please keep in mind that they are supposed to be discarded after a certain amount of time, and it’s not safe to wear them for longer than it’s recommended. Even with propper care and maintenance, they will collect debris in time, and can potentially harm your eyes, scratch them, and cause discomfort. You can choose either daily disposable lenses, that you wear for just one day and then throw them away, or you can buy models that can be worn for two weeks or for a month.
The advantage of disposable cosmetic colored contacts is that you won’t have to care for them, clean them. Otherwise, you must learn the necessary things about cleaning them, and also have the necessary supplies. Also you must know and follow the general rules and guides on how to properly use and maintain your lenses. For a first time contacts wearer, the sensation of a foreign body over your eyes can be a bit strange, and will take some time to adjust, usually a couple of weeks. But with good quality lenses, and proper care and knowledge, this is a very safe and fun way to completely change your look as subtle or as radical you like, and have fun crafting your style.
