Contact Lense FAQ

If you have just found out that you should be wearing prescription lenses then you may be wondering if you should get yourself some contacts. They can be a good choice for many people because they allow you to enjoy corrected vision without wearing glasses. This also makes it easier for you to continue sporting your favorite shades and to continue to show off your great looking eyes. Here are some frequently asked questions about contacts and the answers to them:

How do you take care of contact lenses?

One of the types of contact lenses you may be able to get are disposable ones. If this is the case, then you want to rinse them well with the solution and clean hands before you put them in, then simply throw them away when you take them out. If you get other types then you will not only rinse them to put them in, but you also want to rinse them again after taking them out and then put them in soaking solution and a contact lenses case that you will tightly seal until next use.

How long does it take to get used to having contacts in?

The amount of time it takes for you to get used to having contacts in will depend on a few different factors. It will depend on the type of contacts you go with, some of them are made of thicker and harder material and these will take longer to get used to. If you go with soft lenses, they will be the fastest to get used to and it can be almost instant. Thicker ones can take weeks. It also depends on how sensitive your eyes are and how long you keep them in. Wearing them more often throughout the day is going to help you to get used to them faster.

Can contact lenses get stuck in your eye?

A contact lens can move from the place where it is supposed to stay situated, but it will only hide under your eyelid where you may have a hard time finding it. There is no way for it to actually move behind your eye. If you can't find it, then try gently rubbing your eyelid and putting a little solution in your eye. If you are still having a difficult time then you should go to the optometrist and they can remove it for you.

Can you really get contacts that change your eye color too?

If you would like to experience what it is like to have a different color of eyes then you can get prescription lenses that come in many different colors. When you put them in they will make it look like your eyes are the color of the lenses.
