What are soft colored contact lenses

What are soft colored contact lenses?

Contact lenses are available in a variety of materials. All of the lenses sold by Colourfuleye colored contacts are soft contact lenses. Plastic polymer lenses' soft materials allow for more flexible movement. While the majority of materials used in contact lenses are derived from similar sources, there are still a variety of options to explore. Polyhema, Polymacon, and Neflicon A are some of the materials used in our lenses.

Soft vs. Rigid contact lenses?

While this can be attributed to personal preference for colored contact lens material, soft lenses are typically the most popular material among long-term contact lens wearers. This is because the material is designed to be breathable, allowing oxygen to pass through the lens, reducing the likelihood of your eyes feeling dry and weighed down by the lens. Because of the flexible material, they stay in place better and can move with your eyes. Modern rigid contact lenses, unlike the original glass contact lenses, are made of plastic and look similar to soft lenses. Because of their ability to allow oxygen to pass through, hard contact lenses are often referred to as RGP or hard gas permeable lenses when discussing hard versus soft contact lenses.

Soft contact lenses, as opposed to RGP lenses, are frequently recommended for people who have dry eyes. Although this keeps your eyes hydrated, it may allow bacteria to enter more easily than hard lenses.

How long can soft contact lenses be worn?

When people ask how long you can wear your contact lenses for, they usually mean how many hours you can wear them at a time. To avoid any potential eye problems, we recommend wearing your lenses for no more than 8 hours in a 24-hour period. Excessive wear can cause irritation and dryness, making your eyes more susceptible to infection. As you can see, the priority is to keep your eyes healthy, which is why there is so much advice on how long you can wear your contacts in a day.

How long do contact lenses last in solution?

Our soft contact lens solution is the most effective way to get your lenses ready for use. Before wearing lenses, they should be soaked for at least 2 hours, regardless of the type. This is due to the fact that contact lens solutions contain antibacterial properties that saline does not. If you have reusable contact lenses, such as 30-day or 90-day, make sure to refresh the solution before storing your lenses in the box. If you want to make caring for your contact lenses a little easier, consider our contact lens cleaning kit.

Who isn't supposed to wear contact lenses?

We recommend that you consult with an optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if your eyes are suitable for contact lenses. Whether you have previously worn contact lenses or not, it is critical to seek the advice of your doctor because different brands and types of contact lenses are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and designs.

Why do my contact lenses cause blurry vision?

When you first try on a new pair of contact lenses, your vision may become blurry. This could be due to a variety of factors. Before using contact lenses, ensure that you have checked with your eye care professional to ensure that your eyes fit properly, that you have soaked the lenses in fresh solution for the appropriate amount of time, and that you have checked the lenses for any defects.

If your new contact lenses are blurry, it is possible that they are not as ready as they should be. For information on how to use your lenses, please see our User Guide. If the problem persists or the lenses become uncomfortable, they should be removed as soon as possible. If you have any doubts about the comfort of your colored eye contact lenses, it is best to remove them.

Blurring may occur in some cases due to the lenses being inside. When you place the lens on your fingertips, you can see if it forms the correct bowl shape or if it is inside

Should I soak my daily contact lenses?

Contact lens solutions are used for more than just storing lenses. It is also necessary to soak your lenses before using them. Soaking your lenses for at least two hours will ensure that they are clean and free of potentially harmful bacteria. While all of our lenses are stored in sterile containers and solutions, contact lens solutions contain antibacterial properties to help keep your eyes healthy and fresh.
