Cool Eyed


While most of us can relate to being called ‘Four eyed person’ with our glasses on, some of us do enjoy waking up extra early to have enough time to put on our contact lens. Well yeah, you do get lesser sleep but clearer version without having to see through a pair of glasses and ever ready Snapchat photo’s pays it all off. But that isn’t all we appreciate about the little pieces of plastic, these facts make the contact lens routine, A-okay!

  • Contact lenses can never be lost behind your eyes
    We all have those days when we start scratching our eyes without realising that we had our contacts on that day, but don’t be alarmed cos’ the conjunctiva, a thin membrane which covers the front of the eyes connecting to the insides of your eyelids makes it impossible to get clogged up.
  • Contact lenses are safe
    If you have your pretty sighted friends (pun very much intended!) telling you contact lenses can be risky, it is true, only if you decide to careless for your lenses. Hence, frequently replacing your contact lenses every month and not wearing them for long house plays a big role.
  • Contact lenses cannot be cleansed by water
    If it’s not your contact lens solution, then it’s not a solution. While you may think tap water or bottle water could be an option when you’re running low on contact lens solution, it isn’t as it may be the cause of eye infections. So you might want to rethink your decision of showering or swimming with your contacts on today.
  • Contact lenses are easy peasy to apply
    We do agree that no one ever likes anything touching our eyes, but it isn’t hard to apply contact lens to your eyes. Using your most dominant finger pull down your lower lids and thumb to pull up the upper lids, while holding the lens with your index finger then gently pat it on your iris.

How to wear your contact lenses

Many people new to contact lenses and sometimes even the experienced wearer, have practical questions about contacts.

These tips can help you deal with everyday contact lens concerns.


Is My Contact Lens Inside Out?

A question many newbie wearers have is: “How can I tell if my contact lens is inside-out?”

How to know if your contact lens is inside out.
The difference can be subtle, but before placing a contact lens on your eye, make sure it looks like half a ball, not a soup bowl with a rim.

The trick is to place the lens on your finger so that a cup is formed. Then hold the lens up directly in front of your eyes so you’re looking at the side of the cup.

If the lens forms a “U” with the top edges flared out, it’s inside out. If it forms just a “U,” it’s in the correct position.

If you’re wearing lenses with a handling tint, another way is to place the lens on your fingertip and then look down at it. The edge of a tinted lens should look very blue (or green, depending on the tint); that won’t be the case if the lens is inverted.

Some contact lenses also have a laser marking, such as the brand name, on the edge to help you. If you can read it properly, the lens is not inside out.

Don’t worry if you place a contact lens in your eye inside out. The lens will feel uncomfortable, but it can’t do any damage.
