Colored Contact Lenses and Eye Care from an Optometrist on Our Optometry Team
If you've ever wished you could change the color of your eyes, you actually can, at least temporarily. You can change the color of your eyes with colored contact lenses. They give you a way to look like you have a new eye color for as long as you wear the contacts. When you want to get prescription contact lenses, you need to see an optometrist for your eye exam. To make your optometry appointment, call us today at our Scottsdale, AZ, office. We at Eyes on Hayden are here to help.
Safe Colored Contact Lenses
When you have your optometry exam and get your fresh prescription, you can pick out your contact lenses. When you get your colored contacts from an optometrist, these are usually safe contact lenses. When you get colored lenses, it's important to take care of them just like any other pair of contacts. You might need to use fresh contact solution every time you take them out and to wash your hands before handling them. As long as you practice good contact hygiene, you can expect your contacts to be highly safe. Not using these best practices can lead to eye infections.
Unsafe Colored Contacts
There are unsafe colored contact lenses on the market. These can be dangerous to wear. Just about any eye color you want can be gotten from an optometrist, so there's no reason to go to a third-party seller. These unsafe contacts might be sold as a one-size-fits-all contact, though everyone doesn't have the exact same eye shape. Wearing the wrong size contact lenses can cause your corneas to get scratched. This can cause your corneas to develop ulcers. Do not go with random contacts that might not fit and can cause problems.
