Although colored contacts are known to improve the appearance of your eyes, if you get prescription lenses, they will do more than just enhance your natural eye color. The main purpose of any color contact lens with prescription is to correct your eyesight. Nowadays, if you are diagnosed with refractive errors like hyperopia or myopia, instead of glasses, your optician can prescribe colored contacts. Colored contacts are also beneficial to someone who has mild to moderate astigmatism.
Colored contacts must be cleaned the same way you clean the clear ones. Make it a point that you wash your hands with clean water and soap before you touch them and that you make use of the appropriate cleaning products when cleaning them. The cleaning products that are made for use with soft contact lenses are not the same as cleaning products that must be used for hard or gas permeable contact lenses.
