Through the Contact lens

Thank God I don’t wear glasses or lens.

That means I never had to refrain myself from sitting in the window seat in the bus on a windy day or go through the paraphernalia of caring for them or live in the fear of scratching them. One of my friends perhaps found it hard to remove her ‘contacts’ and soak them in the liquids especially in the train and the bus during those long study tours from college. It is fun to observe how the glasses of college girls vanish by the time they reach their marital age. Perhaps it is just vanity or the desire to get rid of those huge thickening glasses and to add a girlish charm to your face with an invisible contact?

Types of Lenses

Contact lens can be corrective, cosmetic or therapeutic depending on the individual needs. The corrective contact lens replace the conventional spectacles as they are more convenient than them. They are great during physical activities as there is no danger of your contacts falling off and breaking or your child snatching it off as you hold her up. Further, they provide a wider area of vision than glasses, a comfortable fit and are not easily affected by weather conditions like rain. Additionally, they do not give you dark circles, dark areas of abrasion in the T-zone and black heads around the nose which conventional glasses may otherwise give.

Cosmetic contact lenses add a special look to your eyes with their deliberately added color. Therapeutic ones attend to the non-refractive disorders of the eye by aiding the treatment procedure. Some conditions like dry eyes, erosion and keratitis are treated using contact lens. There are contact lenses in the market which are designed to block UV light too. They protect the cornea from the UV light. They can be worn with sunglasses (that protects the entire eyes) for added protection from the sun. Wow!

Eye make-up with lens

My friend, whom I talked about in the first paragraph, finds it hard to combine lens and eye make-up. She does not wear any complicated eye make-up like mascara or eye shadow but the basics, kajal or eye liner. She curses under her breath as the eye liner tends to stick on to the lens spoiling her vision.

It is better not to wear eye-make-up with contact lens. But if you cannot do without it on a special occasion try this:

  • Wear your lens first before you even touch your make-up.
  • Make sure about the brand of eye make-up you use and if need be, get professional help on that. A doctor would most probably say no to eye make-up. Use eye-make up products which claim to be safe for contact lens wearers.
  • Use waterproof eyeliner/pencil and mascara. It is, however, wise to avoid mascara with lenses on.
  • Do not use kajal or eyeliner in the inner eyes.
  • Go for liquid eye shadow instead of loose powder ones.
  • Avoid the use of loose powders on the face too.
  • Do not forget to close your eyes as you dab on any powdered products.
  • Your make up products should be devoid of flakes, dust and fiber. So a fiber-free pad is a better option to cotton for removing make up as well.
  • Even if you use lens or not, never share eye-make up or brushes with anyone.
  • It is also important to disinfect your contact lens if gets in contact with make-up products.

General Tips

It is important to take care of your contacts so that it can take care of your eyes.

  1. Wash your hands with warm water before touching your lens with a moisture-free soap. Dry them with a neat towel.
  2. Clean your lens in the solution well before wearing the lens.
  3. Do not touch the tip of your solution bottle or any eye-drop solution.
  4. Wear only at the time when prescribed and for the duration recommended.
  5. Use eye-care products only after consulting your Eye specialist.
  6. Do not wet your lens using saliva or plain water.
  7. Eye infections should be taken care of immediately. Avoid using lens if your eyes are infected.
  8. It is advisable to use hat or sun glasses to protect your eyes if using lens. Lens make your eyes more sensitive to UV rays.
  9. Do not forget to remove your lens before hitting the bed unless they are recommended while sleeping.
  10. Finally, do only what is prescribed and recommended!

    I have a blogger blog with a custom domain set up. I want to export it to a hosted wordpress blog. Some of my posts have good ranks with google and I don’t want to mess that up. My new WP blog will be the .net of my custom blogger domain so the permalinks will technically change if I import the old posts…any ideas how to get around this?.
