How Do Colored Contact Lenses Work?

Solve Two Purposes From Color Contact Lenses:

Did you ever imagine that you can kill two birds with one stone, and change your eye color while correcting your vision? If you have to wear contact lenses anyway, try color contacts. In recent times developed color contact lenses can give you a vivid, yet natural, look. You can get two types of color contacts – augmentation color lenses, which are half transparent and designed to enrich your natural color; and opaque lenses, which can change your color completely, even if you have dark eyes.

Color Contacts can come in a number of varieties, including hard and soft. Hard contacts are typically not reusable, while soft contacts often are. Some soft contacts are also known as extended wear lenses. Most of these contact lenses come without any vision correction. If your eye needs a lens that needs some vision correction then you have to place an order specially to suit your eyes. Most of these colored lenses can be bought without any recommendation; however there are some stores that require you to furnish the prescription from a doctor to make the purchase. These contact lenses are mostly of disposable type. Daily disposable, weekly disposable and monthly disposable types are available in the market.

Logic Behind Color Contact Lenses:

Contact lenses (both soft and hard) are made of various types of polymers, usually containing some variant of silicone hydro gel. Previously, hard contact lenses were made of a polymer known as PMMA. They have since been replaced by rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses. Many contact lenses are made of hydrophilic (water-absorbing) materials, thereby allowing oxygen to reach the cornea, and make the lens more comfortable to wear.

You should know how to take care of your color contact lenses. For storing your color contacts you will need a contact lens case. It is best to use a case with screw-down lids, so the solution doesn’t leak. If you have several color lenses, you can label each case, or get colored cases. You should wash your case with soap at least once a week and let it sit for a few minutes in boiled water, to kill bacteria, then let it dry before putting your lenses back in. It might be a good idea to carry an extra lens case, filled with solution, with you all the time – just in case your color lens folds in your eye or dust gets under it. If this happens, you can just pop out your lenses out anytime you want.
