Coloured Contacts - Non Prescription:

<-BACK TO ENCYCLOPEDIA

BodyMods carries a large variety of lenses, ranging from natural 3 tone colours to fantasy colours. The ‘3 tone’ refers to three colours blended together in the lens pigmentation to give the wearer a more natural look. The fantasy lenses are opaque, bright and colourful with designs that are unique and creative. A contact lens, or simply contact, is a lens placed on the eye. Cosmetic contact lenses can be used to drastically alter the appearance of the eye, as seen in the entertainment industry. Non prescription coloured contacts are very popular. Modify your eyes with a pair of superior lenses individually packaged and sterile.

 

As with any contact lens, cosmetic lenses carry risks of mild and serious complications, including ocular redness, irritation and infection. For this reason all contact lenses, even purely cosmetic ones, are classified as medical devices in many countries.

 

Contact lenses are typically inserted into the eye by placing them on the index finger with the concave side upward, then using the index finger to place the lens on the eye. When the lens first contacts the eye, it should be comfortable. A brief period of irritation may be caused by a difference in pH and/or salinity between the lens solution and the tears. This discomfort fades quickly as the solution drains away and is replaced by the natural tears. A lens may be removed by pinching the edge between the thumb and index finger. Moving the lens off the cornea first can improve comfort during removal. It is also possible to push a soft lens far enough over to the side or bottom of the eye to get it to fold out of the eye without pinching it.

 

After wearing your lenses, store them in a case filled with fresh contact lens solution. If you wear the lenses infrequently, change the contact solution in the case with fresh solution once a week. The lenses will last for approximately one year of wear, and if stored properly can stay fresh for up to a few years.

 

Do not let hair spray or other cosmetics come into contact with the lenses and do not share the lenses with anyone else; they are for personal use only. Remove the lenses before you go to bed and do not wear them during showers or swimming.
