For people who are considering buying contact lens.
When you consider buying contact lens, many things you might to take into account. Such as what kind of lens you should buy? Soft lens or RGP lens, is it easy to be infection? What should I check out when buying contact lens? In this part, I will tell you all I knew.

Most contact lens brands have their own sterile solution and cleaning, you should remember clean it after daily use. Another thing should be point out is don’t borrow your lens to others. It can result in infection or allergy.
When you decide to buy a contact lens, you should check out oxygenpermeability, central thickness and water content. These three parameters are the top 3 things you should take into consideration. High oxygen permeability can prevent your eyes feel dry. The thin the central thickness is, the more comfortable you may feel. As to water content, the suitable range is around 30%. If higher than it, your eyes may easy feel dry.
