There’s a wide variety of contact lenses on the market. When it comes to wearing contact lenses only for occasional use – it is best to go with quality and comfort over price.
Not all contact lenses and coloured contacts are of the same quality and some are just no safe to wear. That can be for a variety of reasons, but it is even more important to know what kind of contact lenses are best for occasional use rather than everyday wear.
There can be a confusing range of choices and questions that arise from just the idea of wearing contact lenses or coloured contacts.
- How long should the lenses last – daily, weekly, monthly or more?
- What if I change my mind about wearing the lenses every day?
- Should I buy a pair to take for a ‘test drive’ first?
- What are the most important things to look for in contact lenses?
- Is it safe to try any pair or should I only choose the most expensive ones?
That’s a lot to unpack before you unpack your actual delivery of contact lenses.
The first thing to remember is not to stress out over any decision. Take your time and think about what you are buying your contact lenses for and where and when you will wear them.
Daily vs Weekly or Monthly lenses
Depending on how long you need or want to wear your contacts will determine what kind of contact lenses are best for occasional wear.
Most people would think that choosing and using daily disposable contact lenses are the best option. Some go as far to say it is the healthiest choice.
That comes down to changing your contact lenses every day and disposing of the ones you have used.
In some ways, it can seem to be the easiest option and you won’t have a real risk of any infection because you don’t need to store your lenses in a sterile solution and proper container.
It can be very wasteful to buy daily lenses and just throw them away if you are a regular wearer of contacts and/or coloured lenses.
A clear example to see which contact lenses will work for you
Let’s just say that you wear lenses just two or three times a week. That means buying at least 8 pairs for the month or up to 12 possibly.
Expand that over the year and you have around 100 pairs of lenses being thrown away. That can be expensive, wasteful and is hardly great for the environment either.
Even just one pair of weekly lenses would cut the number in half AND you will have the choice of wearing them whenever you want throughout that 7 day period.
It gets even better if you consider buying just 12 pairs of monthly lenses for the year. You will be able to wear them anytime in the month and for as many days in a row as you like.
The simple mistake of treating daily lenses as easy throwaways
There can be a false sense of security in only buying daily contacts for occasional use.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that by choosing daily lenses for their convenience and disposability, that they don’t need to handle and remove them with clean hands. That can lead to trouble with your eyes and you won’t necessarily put it down to your contact lenses as the source of the trouble.
It’s crucial that any contact lenses you use are treated properly and you only handle them with clean hands and always with care.
That goes for any pair of contacts, including Fancy Dress, Halloween, Cosplay and other coloured lenses.
Even if you only buy daily lenses and rarely wear them, it’s important that you get quality lenses or you could be putting your eyesight at risk.
How to find the right contact lenses for you
Working out what kind of contact lenses are best for occasional wear is one thing – working out what kind will suit you and your eyes is just as important.
When it comes to coloured lenses, you want to know that you have chosen a pair or pairs that will give you the special look you’re after.
It makes sense to start with a choice of several different daily lenses. By beginning with a few variations of colour, you can work out which ones suit you and the times you would like to wear them.
You might go for a subtle change of colour during the day and a more dramatic change-up for a night out or a special occasion.
There’s no right or wrong (unless you choose a pair that is too close to your natural eye colour and the difference is almost impossible to see).
It’s then easy to ‘test drive’ your choices of coloured lenses and see which ones you prefer and get the reaction you’re after.
Then you can progress to weekly or monthly versions of those same colours.
Suddenly, you will have an assortment of different lenses that you can wear on whatever occasion you choose and even on a whim.
