How long can I wear my new contact lenses?
The contact lenses that we carry in our store are for cosmetic purposes only and not for prolonged extended wear. If you plan to wear them daily they should not be worn for more than 8 hours at a time.
Can I sleep in contact lenses?
No. You should never sleep in contact lenses. You can cause severe damage to your eyes.
Can I swim in fashion contact lenses?
No, you should not swim in contact lenses because the water contains bacteria that can get trapped in between the lens and your eye and cause infection.
Can I reuse these colored fashion contact lenses?
Yes, these fashion contact lenses can be reused but again, they are cosmetic only and are not to be worn for long periods of time. Do not sleep in them. Always remove them and put them in the case with solution for safe storage and disinfecting.
How often should I clean my contact lenses?
Contact lenses should be cleaned daily and you should also make sure to clean the case that you store them in on a regular basis.
Can I wear makeup with color contact lenses?
Yes of course. But we just advise that you put your makeup on first, wash your hands and then insert your lenses.
How will I know when it's time to take them out?
If you are experiencing headaches or eye strain you should take your lenses out immediately and add solution to them. It could simply just be that your eyes are drying out. If that does not work and you are still experiencing eye strain, then you should take them out for 24 hours. If any redness or yellowing of the eye occurs, give your eyes a rest.
How will I know when it is time to dispose of my contact lenses, throw them away and buy a new pair?
If you are feeling any prolonged discomfort while wearing your contact lenses you should dispose of them. If your contact lens expiry date is past the wear capacity (3 months, 6 months, or 1 year, )depending on the type of lenses you have purchased, you should dispose of them as you should never wear them past their extended date.
You may also notice that your contact lenses become very soft and can no longer stay in. They will become soft and pop out of your eyes. The contacts will have lost their shape and that means its time to throw them away and get a new pair. We always recommend that customers buy at least 3 pairs of contacts with 2 of them in the same color in case you lose one.
Are Fashion Contact Lenses Safe?
Like any other cosmetic product, contact lenses are safe provided that the user has healthy eyes meaning they have gone to an eye care practitioner and received the green light to go ahead and wear contacts. Although fashion contact lenses do not require a prescription, it is always best to visit with an eye doctor to see make sure that you do not require a prescription or a special type of lens. Our eyes are very important and should be treated with the utmost care. Proper cleansing and storing the lenses and short term wear will make them a safe, fun and easy to wear cosmetic.
