Do coloured contact lenses really harm your eyes? As with any lenses, it's low-quality brands that put your eye health at risk. Going for trusted brands and following your optician's wear and care advice is when coloured lenses are perfectly safe and comfortable.
If you're a 'yes' on any of the above: you're doing it wrong!

Does your child want to complete their Halloween costume with a pair of coloured lenses? Nothing wrong with that - but there are a few important safety measures you should make sure they follow.
Parents should always check with an optician whether their child's eyes are suitable for contact lenses. If the optician does recommend contact lenses, It's important to show children how to follow the important contact lens care and hygiene routines.
But it's imperative to choose your lenses and retailers carefully. The internet is full of low-quality products that can easily harm a child's eyes. Contact lenses that come in unnatural colours and decorative patterns can be really harmful, as they can limit oxygen flow to the eyes.
