in innovations right along with the contact lens
industry. Today there are multiple contact lens
companies that offer different colors and designs
to the public. Colored contact lenses can be purchased
in hundreds of different color combinations and
prescriptions. Colored contacts can be daily wear
or extended wear, and come in disposable as well
as non-disposable lenses. Disposable colored contact
lenses can be replaced weekly, bi-monthly, monthly
or quarterly depending on the brand your eye care
provider fits for you. Colored contact lenses can
give a patient a dramatic change or a mild change
depending on the patient's desire. If worn the way
prescribed by your eye care provider, colored contacts
can be a very safe, comfortable and fun alternative
to spectacles or refractive surgery.
