So, we all have wanted different coloured eyes at one point of our lives. I'm still big on having green/violet eyes.
The thing is, MANY people choose the wrong ones for them. Some even choose to wear a certain kinds on contact lenses simply because they like it.
Well, that's the reason for various eye infection anyway so as a veteran contact lens user, I will act as your guru and give a few tips on how to choose the right contact lens for you.
First and foremost, you need to see your eye size - large, medium or small?
You are very lucky! Your eyes would look good with ANY lens, Circle Lenses especially! They would really make your eyes stand out and people won't stop looking at your eyes. So put those lenses on and bedazzle people!
Well, wearing circle lenses would make your eyes look beady and honestly speaking that's fuckin' creepy. If you can fit in those circle lens into your eyes then good for you but I seriously recommend wearing 'normal' lens size.
Second, the condition of your eyes.
There are moist eyes which produces good amount of water to the eyes - which is another way of saying your tearducts are active. Then there are dry eyes that produces very little water - which is to say our tearducts needs 'motivation' to moisten the eyes.
All contact lenses have varying water content. High water content is considered 55% and above, low water content is considered 38-42%.
If you have dry eyes, then you must wear lenses with low water content because they help you to mildly irritate your tearducts to naturally moisten your eyes. Wearing high water content lens on a dry eyes is disastrous - personal experience.
If you have moist eyes, then definitely wear lenses with high water content so the lens absorb the excess water in your eyes to keep them comfy and natural.
Third, the nature of the lens itself.
Colored lenses use well, colors right? And there are varying degree of color density in each type color lenses.
I truly, truly, truly suggest wearing colored lenses with low color density. Here's an example of lenses with high color density.
Notice the high amount of black used? Notice how "thick" the coloring is?
This is actually quite bad. High color density lenses gives little room for the eyes to breathe
and it could result in discomfort of the eyes.
Notice how the coloring is simple? Very little black and the intended color of the lense is sparse.
This is how an ideal colored lens should look like. Lesser color density promotes more breathable pores for the eyes.
Fourth, only read this blog post after you have checked with a optometrist.
Im saying this because there are people who are allergic to contact lenses. Therefore I suggest you go to an eye doctor where you will try a sample pair of contact lenses and see if you have any reaction.
