Color contact lenses
don’t require any special care different from other
types of contacts. However, you should be more gentle
with them, don’t rub them while rinsing, otherwise
the color might wash off.
How to care for color contacts
You should rinse your color
lenses every time you handle them – before putting
them in and after taking them out. It is best to use
multipurpose contact lens
solution. Don’t use peroxide solutions –
they damage the lens color.
Never share your lenses with
other people, even if you wash them afterwards. This
can cause serious diseases of eyes.
If you use decorative cosmetics
or a hairspray, color contact lenses should be put
on after spraying your hair but before applying make-up.
If you need to spray your hair again, do so with your
eyes tightly closed.
Change solution every time
you wear your lenses and wash your contact
lens case at least twice a week. It is recommended
to replace contact lens case every 2-3 month
Be sure you can see in your
lenses well before you drive. Opaque
color lenses might block your vision slightly,
if the lens shifts in your eye. Driving in special
effect contacts, like Wild eyes or Crazy lenses
isn’t recommended, it isn’t safe.
If you have color contacts
of several colors, store them in colored lens cases.
This will help to avoid confusion
Don’t wear your color contacts
for longer than 8-10 hours, particularly if you wear not
frequent replacement lenses (like Freshlook
or Acuvue 2 Colors) but annual replacement lenses. Conventional
lenses are thick and have low oxygen permeability, in
other words your eyes can’t breath in them. Opaque
color lenses are usually thicker then enhancement lenses.
If you take proper care of your
contact lenses, they are absolutely safe for you.
However, never assume that you can just switch from ordinary
contact lenses to color contacts. See an eye doctor to
fit you with color contact lenses that would suit you
