You don’t have to think about your glasses as just an essential item that you need to be able to see, think of them as a way to express your personality and your style. This party season we have a fantastic range of glasses that will not only look great all year round but will get you plenty of comments while you’re out on your Christmas do. Whether you want a bit of sparkle, some elegant detail, or something out there and different, we have them all.
Contact lenses are a great alternative option to glasses, and we find many of our patients use them more at this time of year. If you’re not sure your glasses match your outfit, contact lenses are perfect for freeing up your clothing options and changing your look without anyone knowing you’re wearing them.
When wearing contact lenses you do need to ensure you use and care for them correctly to avoid any infections. Here are our top contact lens tips:
- Ensure you have thoroughly washed and dried your hands before inserting and removing the lenses.
- Do not shower or wash your face with them in.
- Put your contact lenses in before putting on your make up.
- Remember to take them out before you go to sleep.
- If you feel your eyes getting a little dry while wearing your contact lenses, keep them hydrated with preservative free eye drops.
Whatever you choose to do this party season, remember to keep your eyes healthy and avoid causing infection, and above all have a very merry Christmas!
