Contact Lenses with Vision Direct*

Vision Direct Contact Lenses

You may already know that I don't wear glasses or even contact lenses, but the concept of being able to switch up my eye colour depending on my mood or just for fun on a night out has definitely appealed to me in the past. Hence why I am taking to you about Vision Direct today, which is the largest online seller of contact lenses in the UK. They make buying contact lenses super easy and fast, not to mention cheaper too by offering great prices and award winning services. Vision Direct claim to have prices with a 45% discount than those on the high street and they sell over one million products, so if you need a certain brand/type of contact lenses I'm sure you'll have no problem finding them on their website. I've never even played around with contact lenses before so I wasn't really sure where to begin but I found the coloured versions I was looking for within seconds of browsing through the Vision Direct website.

Vision Direct Contact Lenses

I have come to love my natural hazel-brown eyes over the years, but I do remember being a young teen and wishing I had green eyes instead. I'm not sure why I lusted after this particular eye colour so much, as the saying goes 'you always want what you can't have'. Wearing coloured contact lenses is certainly not a need but more so of a want, especially when you don't typically wear glasses or lenses on a regular basis. That's not to say that you should be judged for wanting to have fun with switching up your eye colour and expressing yourself how you may wish to do so. Back in college on many nights out, I would have certainly got a lot of enjoyment being able to go out for the night wearing green contact lenses for example and switching up my makeup looks with that. It would have been something fun and a different way to express my creativity.

Obviously being hygienic when it comes to contact lenses is the most important factor of all, so that's not something to be taken lightly. After a bit of research I've created a list of the most important factors you should take in consideration before you wear contact lenses, especially if its for beauty reasons alone (let's face it you down't want something fun to end up damaging your eyes in any way)...

  • First and foremost, the most obvious factor is to wash your hands before using any kind of contact lenses. Think of it this way, you hands must be squeaky clean to avoid transferring any kind of product on the lenses.
  • Lenses should always be inserted first in your beauty routines... so no applying makeup or even your regular skincare products until the contact lenses are set in place.
  • When it comes to the actual lenses themselves, you should try to opt for the daily disposable options rather than the reusable lenses. Generally there is less chance of bacteria forming and if you accidentally get makeup on them you won't feel bad about having to discard them.
  • Now when it comes to makeup you should consider wearing hypoallergenic, oil free and fragrance free products, especially when we're taking about eye products. This will ensure  that you won't have any unnecessary sensitivity caused to the eyes.
  • With eye makeup the most important products to take in consideration are eyeliner and mascara. With eyeliner make sure you stay away from applying it to the waterline in particular, as it can block the tear glands and cause infection. With mascara on the other hand it's important to avoid any kind of lengthening or fibre options, since there is a risk of the mascara flaking into the eyes and getting trapped under the lenses, which will be super uncomfortable.
  • Be careful when using powder products, especially eyeshadows to avoid having loose particles causing eye discomfort. If possible try to use cream based eyeshadow.
  • Lastly it's important to remove your lenses first before you going ahead to take off your makeup.

After reading all that, wearing contact lenses safely can sound quite scary, but once you set a good hygienic routine in place you should have no worries. I may not have a lot of experience with contact lenses but I'm happy to have had the opportunity to research into the topic about the safest ways of wearing lenses be it for beauty reasons or not. I would love to hear about your experience with lenses and if you've tried coloured versions before... let me know in the comments below.
