What You Should Know About Your Eyes Before Buying Our Contacts


One of the more complex organs in the human body is the eye. It is the organ responsible for vision by refracting light into the eye and transmitting data to the brain via the optic nerve. The information is then translated into image form by the brain.

The eye is a vision-giving organ. The quality of vision varies between species. Some animals, for example, can only see shapes or in black and white, whereas others can see in color or from a great distance. Learn everything there is to know about the eye and how it interacts with colored contact lenses.

The way light enters our eyes determines our vision. Light can enter the eye through the cornea. When exposed to bright light, the pupil contracts and dilates accordingly. Consider how a camera operates. The human eye's structure can filter how much light enters to create the best image. This is analogous to how the human eye expands and contracts to adjust to the amount of light in the environment.

There are numerous eye components, but if you intend to wear color contact lenses, the following are the most important eye parts and functions to understand.

Terminology for the human eye

Cornea - The clear front of the eye covering the iris and pupil. 
Pupil - A pupil is a black, circular opening in the center of the eye that expands and contracts to allow more or less light into the eye.
Retina - A group of light-sensitive nerve tissues that transmit images from the eye to the brain via the optic nerve.
IrisThe tissue behind the cornea that determines the size of the pupil and thus the amount of light that enters the eye is known as the iris. This tissue is slightly pigmented and contributes to the natural color of your eyes.
Sclera - The white area of the eye that protects the cornea by covering it.

What effect do contact lenses have on your eyes?

The majority of contact lenses only cover the iris and pupil. When you wear colored contact lenses, the iris is usually covered with a different color or design to change or enhance your natural color.

When purchasing costume contact lenses, you can select blind-effect lenses, which color both the iris and pupil. Because the pupil is the part of the eye that lets in light to build a picture, these lenses can cause blurry vision or reduce the function of your eyes while in use.

Scleral lenses are a different type of lens. These lenses cover both the white part of the eye and the iris. These lenses can potentially harm your eyes because the sclera is more delicate and sensitive than other parts of the eye, such as the iris and pupil. However, the effect provided by scleral lenses is quite shocking. Full scleral contact lenses are not for everyone, and some people prefer a more subtle approach to their terrifying costume look. The good news is that we have plenty of other mini scleral contact lenses in stock that can produce the same strange effect.

Some lenses, such as mini-scleral contact lenses or round lenses, only partially cover the sclera. The larger circumference of these lenses makes the eyes appear larger. If you have vision problems, you should consider whether your eyes are suitable for colored eye contact lenses. Even if you don't have any vision issues, you should consult your eye doctor or optometrist before using any type of colored contact lens.

As you can see, there are numerous components of the human eye to consider when deciding whether or not to try contact lenses. As one of the most complex organs in the human body, it is fascinating to observe how the human eye functions and provides us with a variety of visual functions (such as distance and color).
