Hi Everyone. Welcome to another new blog post on TicTalkToe.

Coloured contact lens is one of the easiest way to change your look without making things too obvious or permanent. I have been myopic every since I was eleven years old, and attained very high power by the time I was in my teens. Thereafter, I underwent LASIK and the power zeroed down, however, with excessive usage of computer (thanks to my profession), the power came back (though it is now much lesser). However, I had to return back to my plain good old spectacles and contact lenses (on days when I do not feel like wearing the spectacles). While I was about to travel to Thailand, I wanted to try coloured contact lenses for my trip, to change my look. Luckily, I got in touch with Subhasree, who is an optometrist at Lenskart, Kolkata. She conducted a detailed checkup of my eye (absolutely free of cost!) and suggested me to go for Hazel and Brown. These coloured lenses come with power as well.  The packaging was on point, and I received my contact lenses in three days only! These lenses come in two variants, daily disposable (which is for one day use) and monthly disposable (30 days use). I got myself the monthly disposable ones.

In this post, I shall be showing you how coloured contact lenses look on me. I have tried three shades from Freshlook, Hazel, Brown and Amethyst. I can safely conclude that, out of all the three, Brown suits me the best.

I am wearing contact lens in “Hazel” from FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses. The pictures are from my trip to Thailand.

This one is “Brown” from FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses

Steps for wearing contact lens:

  1. Wash your hands every time you put on or take off your lens. I use the dettol liquid hand wash for doing so. Shake your hands to get rid of the excess water. (I do not dry it with a towel)
  2. Sit in a comfortable area, and not directly underneath a fan. Make sure you have a table or a flat surface in front of you. Keep your mirror, lens solution, contact lens box handy.
  3. Take out one lens at a time, and always start with a particular eye first. I always start with my right eye. That way, you don’t end up mixing lenses (more so, when you have different powers for both the eyes). Place the lens on your palm and put a few drops of lens cleaning solution on it. Rub it gently and clean it. Do not rub it too hard, or you might tear or scratch the lens.
  4. Now place the lens on the tip of your right hand’s index finger, and pull up on your upper eyelid and down on your lower eyelid with the thumb of your other hand. Look at the mirror and try placing it on your eye-ball.
  5. Now close your eye and blink. The contact lens will adjust itself into the correct position. If irritation occurs, then try pulling it out gently and repeat Step 4.
  6. Once the lens has correctly positioned itself, repeat with the other eye.

  2. Sit in a comfortable area, and not directly underneath a fan. Make sure you have a table or a flat surface in front of you. Keep your mirror, lens solution, contact lens box and spectacles handy.
  3. Gently place your middle finger over your lower eyelid, and with the help of your thumb and index finger, pull out the contact lens. Some people also use tweezers/plungers to do so, but I feel comfortable with my fingers alone.
  4. Place the lens in your clean lens case or lens holder and fill with fresh solution every time. Don’t “top off” your old solution. Repeat with the other eye.

Some important tips

  • Please keep your nails short (atleast in the right hand) if you wear contact lens. The last thing you would want is an eye infection for the sake of fashion!
  • Always carry your lens case, lens solution (you might want to buy a small bottle for your convenience), spectacles and mirror while travelling with your contact lens on. You never know when it is an emergency.
  • Never sleep with your contact lens on.
  • Clean your lens storage case from time to time. I clean mine once a week.
  • Keep blinking your eyes from time to time, and if need be, hydrate your eyes with the help of an eye drop prescribed by your physician.
  • Always put your contact lenses on BEFORE you apply any sort of eye makeup.
  • Make sure you remove your eye makeup completely at the end of the day, even the slightest trace of mascara or kohl on your lashes could do more harm than you could ever think of!
  • Avoid using contact lens when you are unwell or if you have an eye irritation.
  • Dispose off your lens and eye makeup at a regular interval.
  • Also do not share your eye makeup products with others.
