Contact lens wearers tend to suffer from eye problems ranging from mild discomfort to severe eye complications. Any discomfort should not be taken lightly as it may worsen and cause worse problems for your eyes such as infections, decreased vision, and blindness which would require medical attention.
The interest to wear contact lenses is the triggering factor that led to subsequent processes such as researching about contact lenses, choosing contact lenses and maintenance of contact lenses. So what is the suitable age to start wearing contact lenses?
Other than the common conventional/colourless contact lenses that people usually wear for vision correction, there is also the cosmetic lenses which include colour contact lenses, fashion contact lenses and other lenses that change the appearance of your eyes which is what we usually see on the big screen.

New to contact lenses? Dilemma in making decisions? Too many options to choose from? The same goes for choosing contact lenses.
