What you must know about colored contact lenses?

Post time:2019-10-15 12:55

Purchasing colored contact lenses is not just about choosing color styles, you must be aware of the water content level. Why? Because it affects your comfortability when you wear it throughout the day! However, there’s a misconception of people thinking “The higher the water content level, the more moisturising you feel.”, leading to purchasing colored contact lenses that do not suit you best. How can we properly choose which level of water content is best for yourself? Here are a few tips we would love to share to you before each purchase. A friendly reminder, remember to inquire your optician for professional suggestions.


The water content misconception


The higher the water content level, the better it feels? That’s absolutely not the case! You must know more about your own eyes before deciding which level of water content is best for you. As shown below, the higher the water content level, the easier the water in the lens evaporates. It’s like a sponge soaking water from your eyes constantly to keep how the lenses are shaped, which means your eyes may feel dryness easier comparing to lower water content level lenses.


So, between high water content and low water content, which suits me best?





Low Water Content: Suitable for a longer time of wearing, as well as for people who easily get dry eyes. Lenses with lower water content have longer product life, reducing precipitates on the lenses.


High Water Content: Suitable for a shorter time of wearing, best for users with more tears. High water content also means having higher breathability, lenses are softer comparing to low water content level lenses. However, if your eyes are dry while you wear high water content level lenses will affect the comfortability of wearing throughout the day.


For targeting people who wear contact lenses for more than 8 hours, most of the lenses have water content level up to 38% to 40%. Remember to inquire your optician for professional suggestions.
