Well I’ve been receiving many questions online and in real life about the contact lenses that I wear. And here it is!!!!! I wear two types of contact lenses, cosmetic lenses and prescription lenses.
For cosmetic lenses, I always wear Freshlook Colorblends – I swear by it!
My favourite colours from this series are Grey and Pure Hazel! They make my eyes more attractive and the colours are quite natural. In fact, some people who met me in real life didn’t even know I was wearing coloured lenses until I told them. Once, an optician didn’t know I was wearing cosmetic lenses until I had to remove them in order to get my eyesight checked. So far, the colours I’ve tried in Freshlook Colorblends series are Grey, Pure Hazel, Sterling Grey, Honey and Brown. I haven’t tried more bold colours like Blue or Green. Don’t want to turn out looking like some anime character but no offence to people who love wearing these colours! Just don’t think they will suit me well.
This is me wearing Pure Hazel:
And this is me in Grey:
I love these two colours the most!:D
I have also tried Freshkon contact lenses but I can’t really remember which colours I wore. If I don’t remember wrongly, the colours I wore are Mesmeric Black and Magnetic Grey from the Alluring Eyes series.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any clear pictures of me wearing them because the last time I wore them was last September. I will post them up if I do wear them. 🙂
For prescription lenses, I usually wear CIBA VISION Silicon Hydrogel Lenses because they are more permeable and allow more oxygen to my eyes. Yes my eyes can breathe if that’s what it’s supposed to mean.
The diameter of the lenses are slightly bigger than normal prescription lenses. (These are clear lenses) I used to wear Bausch & Lomb but for some reason my eyes didn’t like them anymore, they got red easily when I wore them so I was recommended by the optometrist to switch to CIBA VISION. I’ve also tried ACUVUE, yes they are so comfortable, they are barely there! But when it comes to removing the contact lenses, I always have trouble removing ACUVUE lenses because they are too thin. If you have sensitive eyes that are easily irritated and turn red even when you have only worn your lenses for less than 6 hours, then I suggest you try Silicon Hydrogel Contact Lenses.
This is me without any contacts with sleepy eyes and blur vision:
And this is me in specs!
Don’t like the shadows casted on my face but oh well, all these photos were taken in low light condition I shouldn’t be fussy.
Yes I finally finished this contact lens post and am feeling extremely accomplished because I’ve procrastinated for far too long! I’m sorry to those who have been waiting – it is finally here and I hope you find it helpful! 🙂 By the way…
