You may already have one eye on the latest trends and fads, knowing that colour contact lenses are becoming increasingly popular within celebrity limelight and culture. We’re long past their common and sole use, before coloured contact lenses were used for spectacular transformations on set, for actors to become a particular character or to fit a certain genre. Nowadays you can find celebrities, as well as fashion savvy people wearing them to enhance their everyday look.
Similar to dying your hair, wearing jewellery and painting your nails, colour contacts can add those finishing touches to your desired image. If you already require prescription contact lenses then why not get creative and substitute those clear contacts with something a little different? It may just give you the extra edge that you’re after.

Optical shops are growing like mushroom in Malaysia, especially Klang Valley. There will be no sustainability without competitiveness. Each optical shop will have their own gimmick in gaining customers trust and loyalty.
One of the gimmick certain optical shops prefer to use is on the issue of contact lens base curve. Eye care practitioner will tends to get your eyes curvature measured and gives advice on the ‘correct’ contact lens base curve that you should use. I do not deny that contact lens base curve plays a role in ensuring your wearing comfort.
But, should you believe and follow bluntly on the advice given by eye care practitioner? The answer is NO!
Finally, Freshkon Alluring Eyes 1-DAY disposable lens is available!
I had tried on Freshkon Alluring Eyes 1-DAY disposable lens, and I assure you that Freshkon is definitely a brand that promises aesthetic impact and delivers excellent wearing comfort.

A corneal ulcer can be identified as a red eye with immense pain, discharge (mild to severe) and lower vision. It is caused by a localized infection in the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye that enables sight by permitting light to enter the eye. The infection causes an erosion, or makes an open sore in this area. (more…)
I received a lot of emails inquiring regarding the diameter of the particular brand of colour contact lens. Seems that many people thought that the diameter is equivalent to how big your eyes will looked after wearing the colour contact lenses.
Well, girls, diameter itself do not directly determine how ‘big eyes’ effect the lens will be. Basically is how the manufacturer Patented Colour Lens Printing onto the contact lens.
Freshlook ColourBlends from Ciba Vision has a diamter of 14.5mm. However, everyone knows that Freshlook Colourblend is just another normal colour contact lens that do not provide ‘big eyes effect’ after wearing it. True or true?
The diameter of Blincon BB and Sweetie series are 14.5mm, too. But, by wearing the lenses, you can notice that the bigger eyes effect instantly.
Thus, you should always try out the lenses yourself or get further information on the effect outcome from those who had tried it.
ColourVUE contact lenses consist of 7 series colour contact lenses. Initially, they all come in the same diameter of 14.0mm. Even with a diameter of 14.0mm, Colourvue also able to produce the ‘Big Eyes’ series. Only later last year, they introduced the 15.0mm diameter lenses. In such case, for the ‘Big Eyes’ series, diameter of 15.0mm lenses will definitely look much bigger than the 14.0mm.
You can share your secrets, your hopes and your dreams with your friends. However, eye care practitioners caution, you should never share your contact lenses.
Simply wear – swapping contact lenses can mean trading germs. Contact lenses can easily carry bacteria from one person to another, and as their condition is moist, contact lenses can allow such germs to thrive. Thus, you would easily get an eye infection. Think about it – that’s why there is no contact lenses tester.
Not disposing of contact lenses within a recommended wearing schedule, can also cause infections. You should discard lens as indicated by your eye care practitioner and replaced as needed.
At the end, it is well worth it to keep your eyes healthy.
Children and Contact Lenses
We all know wearing glasses can strongly affect a child’s self esteem, particularly as they get older and teenage years approach. Although fashionable eyewear has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, most parents of short-sighted children will find themselves bombarded with questions about contact lenses at some point. But when is it appropriate for a child to make the switch to lenses, and what options are available?
Contact lenses themselves pose no threat to the health of the eye when used properly, and children and babies born with conditions such as cataracts are frequently prescribed them. Yet eye care professionals are often reluctant to prescribe contact lenses for short-sighted children out of concerns for their ability to truly take on the responsibility of proper eye and lens care.
For these reasons Jeffrey Walline, in a study published by the American Academy of Optometry, concludes that daily disposable lenses are the perfect first-time choice for children and young (more…)
