Unfortunately, colored contact lenses aren’t for everyone. For example, if you suffer from dry eye syndrome, contacts may not be for you. Those who are severely nearsighted may not be able to find contact lenses with a strong enough prescription to fully correct their vision.
Also, some people are allergic to the contact cleaning solution, or even the contacts themselves. As daily cleaning of contact lenses is crucial to eye health for contact wearers, an allergy to the cleaning solution poses a very real issue.
Some doctors recommend that diabetic patients avoid contact lenses as they may be more prone to infection and have more difficulty recovering from infection. Children’s eyes are particularly sensitive and fragile and wearing contacts at a young age could cause eye damage.
People suffering from the following should not wear colored contact lenses, as these eye conditions may be further irritated by inserting lenses:
Here are a few do's and don’ts when it comes to colored contact lens safety.
✅ DO consult your optician or eye doctor before wearing/purchasing a pair of our lenses.
✅ DO wash and dry your hands whenever you handle your lenses or attempt insertion/removal.
✅ DO soak your lenses for two hours in solution prior to inserting them into your eye.
✅ DO wash your lenses in solution if they touch anything besides your eyes.
✅ DO keep your lenses case clean and regularly change the eye care solution.
✅ DO remove the contacts before you go to sleep, bathe, shower or partake in water sports.
✅ DO remove the lenses if you feel any unexpected irritation, soreness or notice redness or excessive eye watering.
✅ DO seek medical advice if you notice any of the conditions mentioned above.
❌ DO NOT use lenses after the recommended duration (E.g. 1 day, 90 days, 1 year). No, refrigerating/freezing them does NOT increase their life span.
❌ DO NOT use tap water, saliva or household products to clean the lenses, only the eye care solution.
❌ DO NOT let the contacts come into contact with any cosmetic products i.e. makeup, deodorants, hair sprays.
❌ DO NOT attempt to insert lenses that seem damaged, broken or torn or in any way compromised.
❌ DO NOT insert more than one pair of lenses into your eye at one time.
❌ DO NOT share lenses with another person.
Any uncertainties or concerns when using contact lenses should be discussed with an eye care specialist or optician. Ensure you know all the tips and tricks before you get started with a pair of colored contact lenses.
Putting in your contact lenses for the first time may seem like a scary process, but trust us when we say it couldn’t be simpler. We strongly recommend that you soak your contact lenses in solution for at least two hours before putting them into your eyes for the first time.

Try not to get frustrated if you can’t get the hang of the process straight away. Take a break if you need it. It will pay off in the end! It’s always worth paying a visit to an optician if you’re having too much trouble – as we’re sure they’d be happy to help you out. An optician should also be visited if you notice anything unusual when putting your lenses in. The health of your eyes is the most important thing!
Removing colored contact lenses can often be thought of as an arduous task. Luckily, we’ve pieced together a helpful run-down of how to correctly remove your colored contact lenses. Regardless of whether you’re or not you’re new to using coloured contact lenses, this helpful, step-by-step guide is here to help shed some light on the do’s and don’ts.
Just like putting the contact lenses in, taking them out requires patience the first few times. If you become frustrated, do not hesitate to take a break and come back to the venture.
We stock a variety of lenses made from many different materials. One popular option is silicone hydrogel. Silicone is a soft material and these gel lenses offer a higher oxygen permeability, meaning they feel more natural and comfortable. They maintain this oxygen permeability and moisture longer than traditional lenses. It’s actually the same material used to bandage the eye as part of many treatments. This does not mean you don’t have to care for them just as you would any other lens. It just goes to show that we truly offer the newest and best contact lenses that technology has to offer!
As you may or may not know, often germs are passed and viruses are transmitted through contact with the eyes. Washing and disinfecting your hands before touching your colored contact lenses each time is a really important care step for everyday use. Particularly when working at avoiding illness, this becomes absolutely critical! Proper care and cleaning of your colored contacts, as well as good handwashing techniques are a great way to combat this.
