Durable contact lenses are longer duration contacts such as 90 Day and 1 Year lenses. They are made to withstand multiple uses but these thick contact lenses are still soft.
All the lenses stocked at Coloured Contacts are soft contact lenses made from similar materials; however, the thickness of the lens will vary depending on how long it is designed to last. For example, a single use lens will only need to be able to last for the handling of a single use meaning it does not need to be as thick as a lens designed to be removed, stored, then reinserted multiple times.
The different types of contact lenses are suited to different uses. Are you looking for a lens to add to your cosplay character or a natural everyday switch? With the right contact lense thickness, you could find a style that is the best value for money and the most suited to your purpose.
If you often cosplay the same character then you are sure to be practised at re-creating the makeup look and have your costume down to the finest details but what about your character’s eyes? Whether you have already found contact lenses that match your character or are looking for something new to help complete your look, the type of contact lenses you choose can completely change your cosplay experience.
Comic Con events can be long and tiring, not to mention hot! So you need a costume that can last throughout the day without losing its sparkle, leaving you to cram in as many awesome activities as you can. This means if you are going to wear contact lenses they need to be comfortable. That’s why thick soft contact lenses are the perfect match. They have the durability to be used multiple times with the softness that will provide you with some much needed comfort.
At Coloured Contacts you can also expect your lenses to have plenty of moisture locked in, when they are prepared correctly, so you won’t be struggling with dry eyes by the end of the day. As for style? We will leave the creative part up to you!
If you are shopping in our natural range you will notice there are lots of soft contact lenses types. From 10 packs to 90 day lenses and everything in between, figuring out which style of soft lenses will suit you best can seem a little daunting.
If you are searching in the durable contact lenses section then you can expect to find lenses that will provide both a soft material and a long duration. The only difference between longer duration lenses and our daily disposable styles is the thickness of the lenses.
This marginal difference is barely noticeable once inserted but could save you time and money in the long run. With one pair of lenses you could achieve up to 90 days of use – that’s plenty of opportunities to try out a new you! With a range of colours to choose from, there is no easier way to change your eye colour.
With the longer duration lenses care is the key but once you have got that sussed you are sure to love the opportunities our longer duration lenses give you. For some extra help on preparing and storing contact lenses, view our care guides here.
The final type of contact lens is our costume range. These brightly coloured lenses will give your pupil full coverage, perfect for completing your scary Halloween costumes or fantasy looks. The contact lenses thickness of the 90 day style means that if you are a regular MUA or want to try out multiple looks with a single style of lens then this is the style for you. We love to see people getting creative with our lenses and can’t believe the range of characters we have seen cosplayed with a single contact lens style!
Some of our customers may not have used contact lenses before, especially if you are using them for your Halloween fancy dress. If you are new to using contact lenses then often a 90 day or 1 year lens is a great place to start. If you aren’t used to handling contact lenses, then the thick contact lens will be more resistant to any accidental pressure you apply. It can take practice to get used to carefully taking your lenses out of their case and inserting them.
As you can see the soft contact lens range may be thicker than their daily counterparts but there are plenty of benefits to this. We like to leave it down to your personal preference so why not have a go with a range of styles and see which one suits your lifestyle and costumes the best? Durable contact lenses can be a great gateway into creating a whole new world of cosplay characters, creepy Halloween ghouls or a fabulous new natural look.
