Consult with your eye care practitioner. It depends on the type of lens you`re wearing, your eye health, and other factors. You must not wear them while sleeping unless your eye care practitioner says you can.
You should take out the contact lenses when you swim or shower. Otherwise, you could get an eye irritation or infection.

The best and only way currently available is coloured contact lenses. They can change the colour and appearance of your eyes easily and safely. You can wear different color contact lenses depending on your makeup, outfit,
Put in your lenses before putting makeup on and remove your lenses before taking your makeup off. It is important to prevent your lenses from being contaminated with residue from your foundation or powder on your fingers.
The human eye can see the world through the pupil in the center of the colorful iris. Coloured contact lenses are clear in the centre therefore they only change the color of the iris. Your vision thus remains unchanged.
Never share your contacts with anyone. Exchanging lenses can transmit harmful bacteria, and it can cause eye infection or leads to dangerous eye conditions.
No. If you wear both contact lenses and glasses, you will need to have two separate prescriptions for your vision requirements. The contact lenses are placed directly on the surface of the eyes unlike glasses, and they also have additional specifications such as base curve, diameter, lens material and expiry date as opposed to glasses.
Put the lens on a clean finger to form a cup and hold the lens up at the level of your eyes. If your lens is inside-out, the lens appears to be in shape of "U" and its top edges tend to cup outwards.
