Truth be told, I have always admired people who put on colour contact lenses because it gives them an opportunity to express themselves through colours. After all, there’s a saying that “eyes are the windows to our soul” and contact lenses help to beautify the eyes. There are many types of contact lenses that are available out there in the market and it gives users the ability to have a clearer vision without the hassle of wearing spectacles.

I still recall the very first time I put on contact lenses and to be honest, I was extremely sceptical about having a foreign object stuck to my eye. Though putting on the contact lenses felt awkward for the first few tries, I gradually became more confident of putting them on.

Now if you are fascinated with contact lenses like I did and you are a first-timer, I highly advise that you purchase your contact lenses from authorised optical stores and not from blogshops or even retail stores that do not have the necessary licenses.
The most important thing to look out for when buying contact lenses is comfort, especially if you are planning to put on contact lenses for the long term. However, if you are a fashionista and you don’t need vision correction but wish to put on contact lenses on a short-term basis, you will still be required to undergo an eye examination, fitting, and prescription by an eye care professional.

When using contact lenses, you should ensure that you adhere to the instructions given by the optician. If the contact lenses that you’re getting is only meant for daily usage, be sure not to reuse them and at all times, handle your contact lenses with proper care and hygiene because you don’t want to risk having an eye infection.
