You should remove your lens immediately if you experience any of the above following problems:
- Itching, burning or stinging of the eye
- A feeling of something in your eye
- Excessive watering, unusual eye secretions or redness
- Blurred vision, rainbows or hales around objects. Dry eyes may occur if your lenses are worn continuously or for too long.
- The lens feels less comfortable than it did when it was first inserted.
- If the discomfort or problem stops when you take out the lens, you should examine closely for damage, dirt or a foreign body.
- If the problem continues, consult your Eye Care Practitioner immediately.
- Any of the symptoms above can indicate a serious condition such as infection or a corneal ulcer. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to avoid serious damage to your eyes.
- Remember that symptoms are warning signs. If in doubt, take them out.
- When wearing color contact lenses, you may notice temporary differences in your vision due to the presence of the color in your lenses, especially in conditions of low light. If the differences in vision persist, it is important that you consult your Eye Care Practitioner.
- Never allow anyone else to wear your lenses. They have been prescribed to fit your eyes and to correct your vision to the degree necessary.

[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”How to take care of contact lens cases?”]
- Wash your hands and then rub and disinfect your fingers using a quality disinfectant.
- Dispose of old solution.
- Now pour some drops of disinfectant, I repeat pour some drops of disinfectant (and not ordinary saline solutions or rewetting drops) in the wells of the storage case and rub it with your fingers for at least five-7 seconds. Do not allow your storage cases to come into contact with water. Water has microorganisms and minerals that may grow bacteria in the cases and cause inflamed eyes. After disinfecting your lens case completely; get a lint-free towel and wipe it dry.
[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”How do I know if a lens is inside out?”]
There are generally three ways to tell if your colored contacts are inside out. First, you could place the lens on the tip of one finger such that it resembles a bowl. Check if the edges are smooth or if they flare outwards. If the latter is true, then your lens is indeed inside out. Second, you could place the saline solution into the “bowl” of your lens drop by drop. If the edges start to curl inward, then the lens is in the right position. Otherwise, you’ve got it inside out. Third, you could place the lens on the crease of your palm just below your pinkie finger. Slowly, curl your fingers inward. If the edges of the lens also roll inwards, then it’s in the right position. Otherwise, it is inside out.
[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”Should I replace a lens that has a slight tear on the edge even when it doesn’t bother me at all?”]
You most definitely should. Regardless of whether you’re bothered by the tear or not, a damaged lens has to be replaced. For all you know, it could already be causing damage to your eyes that you just haven’t noticed yet. Where your eyes are concerned, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
These are just some of the most important questions for which you should know the answers when you decide to wear colored contacts, or any kind of contact lens, on a regular basis. Safety, more than beauty, should always be your top concern.
[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”How often should i replace lens case?”]
Always replace your case every three months even when it looks clean and you have been following proper cleansing and disinfecting of your lens cases. This is because bacteria and other microorganisms produce a substance called biofilm in the lens cases with the period of time. Biofilm acts as a reservoir to the bacteria and helps them hiding in the case from the disinfecting solution.
Contact lenses need to be completely immersed/ soaked into the solution- so fill the lens storage case fully. Things to avoid:
- Do not top off the solution in your case. The old solution should be dumped off after every use.
- Do not reuse old solution present in your lens case.
- Do not store your lens cases near the toilet or a place that encourage bacteria accumulation due to moisture and humidity.
- Do not use rewetting drops or saline solutions to disinfect lenses or cases.
- Do not take part in any activity that includes coming into contact with water with your lenses on such as swimming, showering, etc.
[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”What are the things to take note during make up?”]
Tips to that make-up while wearing colored contacts:
- Put on contact lenses BEFORE make-up.
- Remove contact lenses BEFORE cleansing. Always wash your hands before that.
- Always ensure your hands are clean. Any stains on contact lenses may cause your eyes pain and prone to inflammation.
- Apply powder gently to avoid falling into the eyes.
- Choose a liquid or powder eyeliner when drawing eye shadow.
- Use good quality mascara to avoid brushes fall into the eyes.
- Apply mascara slowly and do no blink immediately after brushing. Wait for at least 10 seconds; ensure it is dry before we blink.
[/eltdf_accordion_tab][eltdf_accordion_tab title_tag=”h4″ title=”My colored contacts still look the same, why should I replace them?”]
Colored contact lenses may feel the same even past their expiry but they do not remain safe enough to continue wearing them. Pollen from atmosphere, protein, dirt & debris with bacteria accumulation make colored contact lenses unsafe to wear after expiry.
Even though you have been regularly disinfecting them expired colored contacts pose threats pose threats which should not be neglected. Colored contact lenses weather with time and the color that begins to fade with prolong wear may get in contact with your eyes which may lead to eye infections or even permanent vision loss. Therefore, always replace colored contact lenses on time.
