Colored contact lenses can be useful. However, utilizing the wrong lenses can be harmful to the eyes, especially if they don’t fit. If you are looking for safe colored contact lenses, we at Family Eye Care in Chico, CA, are here to help. 


For Theatric and Cosmetic Purposes

Colored contact lenses might be used as a tool for makeup artists and costume designers on movie and TV sets. However, the very same feature of changing one’s eyes and their appearance is on the consumer market for anyone to use them and wear. Today, colored contact lenses work very similar to regular lenses. They can be installed the same way, and they can be provided in prescription form as well for sight issues and focus. However, contact lenses can be unsafe if they do not fit or are made improperly.

Lots of Choices Are Available

There are lots of choices for coloring and appearances. Everything from subtle, natural color changes to theatrical looks are possible.

There are also subtle options that allow a coloring change without a dramatic difference. These can allow an appearance change without being shocking or standing out. Colored contacts can also have the beneficial effect of changing the colors that you see. This might help snowboarders, for example, cut down on the amount of glare that they get from the snow. It might also be able to help athletes see the ball more easily.

Complications from Bad Contacts

A big problem that comes with contact lenses from is the risk of infection. If the contact lenses are not prepared and packaged properly, they can expose the eye that wears them to bacteria and infection. Secondly, non-prescribed contact lenses may not match the eye correctly, causing scratching or abrasion to the eye surface. This injury might get worse and become a serious problem for the person that wore the contacts.
