For most of us, winter is worth waiting. Making a snowman and throw snowballs, we can enjoy so many pleasure with our family.
However, cold weather also causes some troubles, especially in winter, for me, the greatest impact would be contact lenses frozen.
As we all know, for kinds of makeups, contact lenses are necessary. Choosing one pair of suitable color contact lenses, not only you can own charming eyes, but also give highlight for your whole appearance.
However due to cold weather, just as the most area of US now, where the temperature is below zero degrees, some color contact lenses freeze during shipping or some reasons.
So what should we do?
Don’t worry, it’s normal. All you need to do is deal with it correctly, then you can wear them safety and health.
Based on my 3 years contact lenses experiences, I will share you with the most comprehensive guidelines to deal with contact lenses color frozen in winter.
I will divide this post into 4 parts.
First, let's begin from the most important, also most of our users' concern, what should we do when contacts freeze in cold weather?
I want to tell you when finding contact lenses freeze, don't worry, it's normal in cold weather.
1. Put on your colored lenses at room temperature, then all you need to do is waiting for contact lenses natural thawing.
2. Don't open contact lenses package before freezing.
3. Don't artificial heating contact lenses, such as put them on a radiator.
4. Don't pour hot water on it.
5. Before your colored contacts freezing totally, don't shake lenses packages, in case ice scraps cut the lens.
6. After freezing, just soaking in professional care solution.
In a word, instead of freezing your colored contact artificial, you just need to put the contact lenses on room temperature and waiting for them freezing.
When seeing color contact lenses freezing, there will appear another new question, also many people will ask if these contact lenses can wear or not, if these freezing color contact lenses are safe?
Yes, I'm sure these color eye contacts after defrosting are safe and health if the packages are still well.
In fact, the freeze is just one physical phenomenon, not a chemical phenomenon. There hasn't other condition besides the lens is frozen.
1.Frozen Contacts Contain Germ
In order to meet a quality requirement and facilitate transport, all color contacts are vacuum-packed, which haven't any condition to produce germ, so it's totally wrong when you think these frozen lenses contain the germ.
2. Frozen Color Lenses are Distorted
Adopt silicone hydrogel materials, nowadays, every ttdeye color contact lenses are soft and full with flexibility, that's why these colored contact lenses can cover your eyes perfectly.
3. Frozen Colored Lens Can Generate Protein
On the one hand, just because the weather is so cold and temperature below zero degrees, the contact lenses are frozen, we can think, is the protein can be breed under this state?
On the other hand, only by the color contacts are frozen, how them can produce protein?
Based on these two aspects above, so it's totally wrong when someone said that the frozen colored contact lenses are generated protein.
Now, you will know several details about these frozen eye contact lenses color. But I still consider, in order to wear all color contacts correctly in winter, you also need to know this information below.
For so many girls, of course, including me, we chase prettier even in winter. Colorful contact lenses are a must for us.
However, due to cold weather and big wind, there are also 3 essential tips we should know when wearing contact lenses.
1. The Most Important is Moisturizing
During dry winter weather, the dry eyes syndrome are more taken place. Usually, the human body can feel dry easily in winter than summer, especially outside a room, the high air flow can speed up tear evaporation and take away eye moisture, which creates our eyes dry.
So it's totally important to moisture our eyes when wearing color contact lenses in winter.
Besides using specific eye drops, you'd better don't wear colored lenses for a long time, commonly, not more than 8 hours in winter.
2. Notice Color Contacts' Clean
Also due to dry weather in winter, some villus and protein can easily stick to the lens. If there has big wind outside, contact lenses are also easily adhered to some particle-like as dust.
During this time, we have to remove our color contacts off and clean it thoroughly, don't rub eyes at the same time.
PS: You'd better don't wear contact lenses in the hazy day, if have to, just clean color contacts frequently.
3. Other Common Things Occur in Winter
Because of the big temperature between eye inside and outside, the moment you wear color contacts, sometimes, there may have some bubbles between lens and cornea, which will make you feel blurred vision.
Under this condition, you should close your eyes and rolling your eyes softly and exhaust the air slowly, making the color lens cover your cornea perfectly.
I always thought everyone should be pretty and energetic to face a new day in our life, it's no doubt that wear types of color contacts can bring us charming eyes and enough confident.
However, on the other hand, I also advise you'd better don't wear eye lenses color under these 3 conditions.
Usually, during these situations, air flow will speed up, these dust among air will make our color lens dirty soon. What's worse, the lens may be blown off by the wind.
You'd better don't put on color contacts. If have to, I suggest you can add one pair of wind goggles.
Once feel any foreign sensation in your eyes, you should remove color contacts off and clean them.
In the hazy day, besides micro dust may stick to the lens, due to low air temperature in this weather, wear color contacts in this situation may result in our eyes lack of oxygen and appears red, an urticant phenomenon
3.Have a Cold
You'd better don't wear color contacts when having a cold. Because of this period, our body is weakened immunity, and don't hold a good state.
If wearing color contacts this term, may you feel dizzy and sick.
Ok, that's all I want to share you today. From another aspect, winter is also good, which means you have the chance to have a look these beautiful snows while most of the others don't.
So if meet these, just enjoy. However, be sure to remember these significant points I mentioned above to protect our eyes when seeking beauty.
