Want to know about the different contact lenses types you can choose from, here at Coloured Contacts? To help you find the right style for you, we have divided up our contact lenses using our Lens Comfort Scale.
Before we go into detail about different types of contact lenses it is important to note that all the lenses we stock are soft contact lenses. This means they are made from materials with high water content to ensure your eyes stay comfortable during wear. The other benefit of this type of contact lens is that it can help your eyes to stay hydrated and moisturised which is just what you need, especially when it comes to extended wear contact lenses when you are attending events such as Comic Cons and costume parties.
Soft contact lenses are known for having a thin style which means once the lens is in your eye it won’t be too noticeable to your eye. There is some variation to the materials used for making coloured contacts, but products at Coloured Contacts are FDA approved and CE marked to ensure the lenses are fit for purpose.
The question isn’t which contact lenses are the best but which are the best for you. The contact lenses types advantages and disadvantages are subjective depending upon how you would like to use your lenses. We will outline the main reasons our customers opt for the various types of lenses on our comfort scale and will also cover the reasons you may want to avoid certain types.
Everyone’s eyes are different which means you may have different results to another person when using exactly the same lenses. Your personal experience can come into play too; if you regularly use contact lenses you will have more experience in inserting and handling contact lenses which will also have an influence on your decision.
Durable contact lenses are generally designed to prioritise the need to be long-lasting and sturdy. For this reason, you will find that out of the lenses stocked at Coloured Contacts they are the thickest. However, they are still soft contact lenses, meaning you can enjoy the benefits that come with this type of lens.
Durable contact lenses tend to be used for 90 Day and 1 Year duration. With the extra wear and tear of frequent handling, cleaning and re-inserting the contact lenses; the lenses need to more hard-wearing. If you are a regular user of specific styles of contact lenses then buying a longer duration lens makes sense in terms of contact lenses types and prices. This type of lens will save you money in the long run and is less likely to rip and tear.
If you are not used to wearing contact lenses then the durable style could be a good choice. The thicker material will mean the lenses can take rougher handling. While you are practising inserting your contact lenses this is a great style to stick with. Once you have more experience you can move on to regular or super soft contact lenses. The thickness of the lens also makes it easier to place on your finger and insert.
Next on the scale are regular contact lenses. These find the perfect balance between durability and softness. These thin contact lenses have the durability to last for a reasonable amount of use. This style of lens is perfect for wearing to events such as Comic Cons or parties because they offer a comfortable feel thanks to the lightweight materials but are durable enough to withstand handling.
This range features costume and natural styles so you can complete your costumes, as well as try out a new eye colour. With every colour available in this range you are sure to have plenty of choices to find the best kind of contact lenses for you.
In terms of contact lens types and prices, the longer duration contact lenses in this range have the perfect balance between value for money and durability. Whether you will be saving them for Halloween or need contact lenses for a regular cosplay, the longer duration lenses can make a huge difference to cost if you are going to be using the same style frequently.
For the ultimate in comfort make sure to check out the super soft contact lenses range. These are generally designed for a shorter duration because the super thin material means they are less durable than the regular contact lenses. These lightweight contact lenses are great for customers wanting a one day change for a costume or special event.
This style does need careful handling to ensure they don’t rip but once they have been inserted you are sure to feel the benefits of this super lightweight material. Disadvantages of contact lenses that are thin are that they can be harder to handle if you aren’t experienced in using contact lenses.
The advantages definitely outweigh this with the same vibrant designs available in daily styles and a super soft finish. In terms of types of contact lenses and prices, the daily lenses are the cheapest but they can only be worn for one day so make sure to consider how many times you would like to wear your lenses. However, if you are looking for a lens for a single event or would like an introduction into coloured contact lenses you can’t go wrong with a pair of soft daily contact lenses.
When it comes to finding the best type of contact lenses it really is up to you to weigh up the pros and cons depending on the type of use you would like to have out of your contact lenses. The main things to consider when choosing your perfect pair are the duration, comfort type and price to find the best option for you. The contact lenses disadvantages and advantages are fairly subjective so make sure to carefully consider the properties of all the contact lenses types.
