There are some safety elements to consider when purchasing ones. They are medical devices, they come in direct contact with your eyes, and there are general precautions and guidelines when purchasing your first set and when wearing them.

First of all, avoid buying cheap and potentially unsafe lenses from an untrusted store. It is best to consult with an eye specialist first, this way you can get an eye exam and find out whether you have any potential unknown issue, or what is best recommended for you. A specialist’s advice can offer you the answer to any question you may have, since this would be something new for you.

Learn about the different lens types, think of the lens color it would most likely suit you, the look you want.

To help you, here are some key factors to consider when purchasing your first set of lenses. They can be categorized into two distinct groups. Some lenses are translucent, meaning they will only partially cover the natural color of your eyes. They are essentially enhancing your iris with more vibrant colors and details, they have a very natural look, and generally your eye color will be your same natural iris color, just with a more appealing and vibrant shade. They are perfect for instance for people with lighter eye color, who want their eyes to have a deeper and visually interesting shade. But you can wear a cosmetic colored contact that is opaque, meaning it will completely cover your iris. With such a pair, you can completely change your eye color, and your look change will be more dramatic. You can consider your hair color and skin tone when choosing a lens, and picking a color for it that compliments them. Or you can choose a bolder combination, that would give you a unique powerful look.

You should also learn about the proper care for the lenses, and especially follow the recommended time you should wear them. They can be used for a month, or for two weeks, depending on what is stated for usage time. There are also daily disposable models, that you discard at the end of the day. The advantage with these is you don’t have to clean and care for them. Regardless of the model, never wear them more than needed. Always pay attention to your eye’s safety. This way, you can truly enjoy them.
