IS IT DANGEROUS TO WEAR NON PRESCRIPTION COLOURED CONTACT LENSES ?
basically i wear non prescription EYE2EYE coloured contactz ..only for school and when i go out..usually no more then 5/6 hours a day ..
and the moment i get home i wash my hands and take them out.

i wash my eyes with cold water every night and apart from that dont really touch my eye area..

CAN I GO BLIND ? CAN MY EYE SIGHT GO BAD ? IS IT GOING TO HARM ME ?

i'm clean and careful with them..only wear them for when i go out ..

i heard that it SCRATCHES YOUR EYE..BUT IF YOU THEN DONT WEAR CONTACTS FOR A FEW DAYS YOUR EYES WILL HEAL NATURALLY AGAIN..
TRUUEEE OR NOT ?

Non prescription colored contact lenses are much the same as prescription contact lenses. As long as you care for them properly and do not over wear them (only 6 days per week), you should be ok.

The chances of something bad happening are about the same as those that wear prescription lenses. They are minimal if you do the right things.

Always wash your hands. Replace the lenses when you are supposed to. Do not sleep in them. Do not wear them when you have a cold. Do not get water in them and clean them thoroughly. You should be ok.

If you are wearing them long term then have regular eye tests too

Can non prescription color contacts hurt your eyes?
Yes and no. I've been wearing colored contacts for about 3 years now. As long as you change your lens case every 2-3 months and use a proper contact lens solution you can be good. I went to my eye doctor and got fitted for contacts there and they taught me how to care and handle for them. I really do not recommend getting them from online stores! Cause your trusting this one website with your eyes. If you want colored lenses you should go to your local eye doctor and ask them about it. I've heard horror stories of people who bought lenses online and had to get a corneal transplant! NOT GOOD! If you do buy any online then buy some from Pinkyparadise . com .. I've gotten circle lenses from there and they're the only website I trust! But other than that have fun and be safe! ~Tori :]

Is wearing prescription colored contacts daily dangerous?
With infrequent use it can be fine but the cornea is the only part of the body that doesn't have a blood supply so needs to breathe. By prolonged use of contact lenses, coloured or not, these cells can be damaged. Hope this helped!
