Ever wanted to have blue eyes? Or maybe you’re tired of having blue eyes and think grey would be a cooler color. Or maybe you just finished watching True Blood, Supernatural, or even Twilight and thought that those red eyes were pretty awesome. You could always just get a few droplets of dye and drop those in your eyes, but if you aren’t interested in possibly going blind with quite a bit of pain on the side we might have the answer for you.
Colored lenses have been a more recent trend. They are basically contact lenses with strategically placed color to make it look as though your irises are a different color. So surprise your friends with some red eyes and a fake craving for blood (hopefully its fake). Spice it up with some striking blue or green eyes, or tone it down with dark grey. Whatever you want to try we’ve got it here for you.
Things you need to know about putting in contacts if you have never done it before is first when you purchase any color contacts or regular contacts is to make sure you purchase the eye packs for contacts. Each eye pack comes with a carrying case for your contacts and solutions to soak your contacts in.
Once you take out your contacts for the first time we suggest dropping them into your new case with new solution for the first time, close up the case then shake them up and the reopen right away to wash off any contaminants that might of be produced through manufacturing and or heat debris.
Once you have done that take your contact out with your fingers and letting a small amount of the moisture on the tip of your finger put the contact on the tip of your fingers and look to make sure the contact is not flared it should look like a cup bowl with no flare around the edges. If the contact is flared this means your contact is backwards.
If your contact is cupped then you are ready for phase 2 which is placing the contact into your eye. With your opposite dominant hand use your index finger and thumb to widen out your eye using the back of your fingers to grip your eye lids and open your eye up. Then tilt your head back and with your other hand lightly lay the contact on your eye, make sure you are laying it on and not pressing it on, if you press it on the contact may cup backwards and suction back onto your finger you want to lay it across your eye and the rest will be natural. When you have the contact laying across your eye you can let go of your eye lids and then blink, the blinking will squeeze any air between the contact and your eye and now your contact will move around in place to be perfectly centered, you may need to blink several times for it to lie in place properly.
Now you can repeat the same procedure for your other eye, if this is your first time with contacts sometimes is can be a little discomforting. In your eye kit it should have come with eye drops for contacts but if it did not then we suggest getting some clear eye: contact. But most of the time blinking will take care of any redness and itchiness.
Make sure you keep your contacts in for at least 15 minutes when you place them in for the first time, may time the contacts will conform to your eye the very first time, this way your contact will have a memory of your eye shape since everyone’s eye is different. This also is a good reason to never share your contacts with anyone else depending on the brand of contact you do not want your contacting molding to someone else’s eye.
Taking out your contacts is a cinch but can be scary the first time you will need to take your thumb and for finger and lightly pinch your eye, and once you feel your contact folding over pull it out and put into your contact case right away with the solution inside. The eye solution will keep your eye contact moist and you can re-use your contact over and over again up to 3 to 6 months depending on usage.
Make sure when you put your contact into the case you put them in the correct eye slot left or right. nothing worse then putting the wrong contact in the wrong eye even if they are not prescription you need to remember that your contact has conformed to each individual eye.
