Prescription and Non-Prescription Colored Contact Lenses: Safety, Style, and Selection

22nd Sep 2023

The world of colored contact lenses has expanded so dramatically over the last decade! No longer just a tool for vision correction, contact lenses are now a popular fashion accessory that can change your eye color safely and undetectably. Whether you're looking for Prescription Colored Contacts for vision correction or Non Prescription Colored Contacts just for fun, there are numerous options available to change and enhance your natural eye color.

Safety First: Using Non-Prescription Colored Contacts

One of the most common questions our optometrist gets asked, "Is it safe to wear non-prescription cosmetic colored contacts?" The simple answer is yes, as long as you choose high-quality lenses from reputed brands and adhere to all safety standards. And the best part is many brands, including Solotica Lenses, Amara Lenses, Bella Lenses, and Anesthesia Lenses, are FDA approved, ensuring both prescription and non-prescription colored contact lenses meet stringent safety criteria.

Ease of Use: Inserting Colored Contacts

For newcomers, the idea of putting in colored contacts might seem daunting. However, with a bit of practice and patience, the process becomes second nature. Always wash your hands with antibacterial soap before handling your lenses and use a high-quality fresh lens solution. To insert, place the lens on the tip of your index finger, pull down your lower eyelid with your middle finger, and gently place the lens on your eye. Blink a few times to settle the lens, and you're good to go! Still have questions? Read our detailed instructions here.

Caring for Your Colored Contacts

Regardless of whether they're prescription or not, colored contact lenses require proper care. It's essential to soak your lenses overnight before the first use. Regular cleaning and soaking in a fresh lens solution are vital to keep your eyes safe and ensure the longevity of the lenses. Typically, an overnight soak for about 6-8 hours is recommended for most lenses.
