Q1: Are Colored contact lenses more harmful to the eyes than normal contact lenses to the eyes?

-The answer is No.

Colored contact lenses are indeed different from normal contact lenses, for their pigment layer design needs a certain degree of sealing, that will reduce the oxygen permeability of the lens.

But the harm of wearing colored contact lenses to the eyes is usually caused by choosing unsuitable material, not doing good regular inspection, wearing them for too long, not wearing and taking them off correctly, etc.


Q2: Which diameter of the lens should we choose when we try the colored contact lenses for the first time?

-For the ones who wear lenses for the first time, we recommend she choose lenses with a diameter between 13.8mm ~ 14.2mm.

In the beginning, trying the lenses on the eyes will not be easy, so we advise her to wear a smaller diameter first, then after a period of wearing time, she can try 14.5mm again.
For the girls with relatively small eyes, we advise her not to wear lenses with big diameters (like 14.5mm), for the big-diameter lenses on her eyes will not let eyes show up except the pupil.


Q3: Can the colored contact lenses be worn on the eyes after it was just taken out from the package?

No. The colored contact lenses can not be worn on the eyes after they are taken from the package. Because the solution in the package box is made from borate material, though it can be a preservative for the lenses, wearing the lenses from the package directions will irritate the eyes.

We suggest she put the lenses in the new dedicated care solution after taking them out from the package, soak and clean them for about 8 hours, then try them on her eyes. Even with the daily lenses, we should also clean them this way, thus we can wear lenses more safely.


Q4: Is the higher the water content of the color contact lenses, the better the quality?

No. Usually, colored contact lenses with a short life cycle have higher water content than colored contact lenses with a long life cycle. For yearly lenses, the best water content percentage is 38%; for daily lenses, the best water content percentage range is from 50%~55%. If you’re the people whose eyes are very easy to dry, you'd better choose lenses with lower water content.
