Freshlook Contact Lenses

Is it true that it is illegal to buy color contact lenses from a beauty supply store? Why do I need an eye exam to wear these types of lenses since I don’t have much of a prescription?

It is illegal to purchase contact lenses of any kind, color or otherwise, without having an eye exam and contact lens fitting.

Contact lenses are a medical device regulated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and as such must be prescribed by a licensed eye care practitioner, either an optometrist or ophthalmologist.

Even if you do not have much of a prescription, the lens will be in direct contact with your cornea, which is living tissue. This tissue’s health can be adversely affected by the improper use of contact lenses. Corneal health is important to your vision.

    What are the disadvantages of Freshlook color contact lenses?

    The biggest disadvantage with these lenses is that they do not breathe well compared to most other soft contact lenses.

    This fact makes these lenses unsuitable for sleeping or even napping. As a matter of fact, it is wise for you to keep the wearing time at a maximum of 12 hours per day.

    Ideally, wear these lenses a maximum of 5-6 days per week. As for all types of contact lenses, you should discontinue wearing these lenses when you are sick with a cold or infection in order to minimize your risk of eye infections.

    Also, these contact lenses may be uncomfortable to some wearers compared to the silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
