Colored contact lenses can change your whole look. They can be a great asset and an enhancing addition to your makeup. Contacts can be worn by anyone who does not have eye problems. Here is how to choose contact lenses without sacrificing your eyes to fashion.
First you need to choose a good optometrist. Let him examine you prior to purchase in order to make sure that contacts will be safe for you. He will also consult you on your choice of contacts.
Choose the right lenses. Do not overlook your doctor’s advice on size and density in favor of color.
If you have eye problems such as far-sightedness, near-sightedness, astigmatism, etc. let your optometrist know. If you also provide a prescription you can combine beauty with usefulness and get contacts as serviceable as they are pretty.
Select color. There is no easy way for this to be done. You are going to have to try several colors on before you can make your choice.
Trying the lenses on will also help you discern whether they are comfortable or not. If you feel continuous discomfort while wearing them, they are not the right contacts for you.
Always care for your contacts according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
