There is always time to learn contact lens tips if you are new to contact lenses! In the video below, we demonstrate how to shop with colored contact lenses and share some helpful tips for first-time contact lens wearers.
This video is ideal for first-time contact wearers. It is critical that we educate our customers about the health and safety implications of wearing contacts. If you've never worn contacts before, this video contains a wealth of information. Here are some of the most important aspects of the video that we found extremely useful.
The first time you open your contact lenses
Opening your colored contact lenses for the first time can be a daunting task if you've never done it before - what should you do first? Before opening the lens package, we always recommend reading guides like this one, as well as any accompanying instructions. Although it may seem obvious, you should always wash your hands before handling contacts - we cannot emphasize this enough!
This video clearly demonstrates the importance of handling colored contact lenses with care and hygiene. The lenses are very thin and delicate, and if not handled properly, they can easily break and tear. Remove the lenses carefully from their packaging and place them in a case with some eye care solution. Soak them for at least two hours before inserting them.
Are my contact lenses inside out?
Checking to see if contact lenses are inside out is a common practice that we encourage new contact lens wearers to incorporate into their contact lens routine. Contact lenses are designed to fit the rounded shape of the eye; if a lens is inside out, it will not sit comfortably and may cause discomfort. There are a few methods for determining whether a lens is inside out or not.
Before we put on contact lenses, they should be perfectly bowl-shaped. If the lens edges curve outward, the contact lenses are most likely inside-out. As you gain more experience with colored contact lenses, you will be able to tell if they are correct.
How to clean your contacts？
The key to using our colored contacts smoothly and successfully is cleanliness. Even if you're using disposable contacts for Halloween or special events, it's still important to watch these tutorials to ensure a safe Halloween contact lens experience!
