Are You Worried You Won’t Look Cool in Specs? Try Coloured Corrective Lenses and

Posted by O-Lens on November 28th, 2019

Physical appearances matter a lot, especially for a teenager who is entering college or a new person trying to fit in with the existing crowd. Sporting specs make you look nerdy and thereby prevent you from joining the cool gang. If you are not interested in appearing geeky and wish to have corrective contact lenses to improve your vision, you should opt for some of the best contact lenses available in the market. Contact lenses work usually by correcting refractive errors. This is done by focusing light such that it enters the eye with the proper power for a clear vision. A contact lens is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye.

Why do people wear contact lenses?

The Global contact lenses market has projected upward. Contact lenses are generally prescribed by ophthalmologists, optometrists on specially licensed opticians under the supervision of an eye doctor. Growing prevalence of myopia, increasing geriatric population, and rising preference for contact lenses over prescription eyeglasses are the major factors driving the growth of the corrective contact lens market. Aesthetics and cosmetics are the other motivating factors for people who want to avoid wearing glasses or to change the appearance of the eyes. Some wear contact lenses for optical or functional reasons. As compared with spectacles, contact lenses typically provide better peripheral vision and do not collect moisture or perspiration. This feature can make them preferable for sports and other outdoor activities. Contact lenses are classified in many ways by their primary function material, wear schedule and replacement schedule.

  • A typical spherical contact lens bends lights evenly in every direction. They are typically used to correct myopia and hypermetropia.
  • Soft Lenses are more flexible than rigid lenses and can be gently rolled or folded without damaging the lens.

Contact lenses for vision correction and cosmetics

Contact lenses are also used for beautification purposes. The cosmetic contact lens is designed to change the appearance of the eye. These lenses may also correct refractive errors. Several contact lenses brands provide a slightly tinted brown contact lens which makes the eyes more attractive. Due to their medical nature, colored contact lenses, similar to regular ones, are illegal to purchase in a few countries. Those with perfect vision can buy color contacts for cosmetic reasons but they still need their eyes to be measured for getting one with zero vision correction. Usually, blue, green or brown contact lenses are preferred over others. 

Caring for lenses is easy. Different contact lenses have different wear and replacement schedule. Before touching the contact lens or the eye, it is important to wash hands thoroughly with soap and rinse well. The technique for removing or inserting a contact lenses varies, depending upon whether the lens is soft or rigid.
