Unfortunately, colored contact lenses aren’t for everyone. For example, if you suffer from dry eye syndrome, contacts may not be for you. Those who are severely nearsighted may not be able to find contact lenses with a strong enough prescription to fully correct their vision.
Also, some people are allergic to the contact cleaning solution, or even the contacts themselves. As daily cleaning of contact lenses is crucial to eye health for contact wearers, an allergy to the cleaning solution poses a very real issue.
Some doctors recommend that diabetic patients avoid contact lenses as they may be more prone to infection and have more difficulty recovering from infection. Children’s eyes are particularly sensitive and fragile and wearing contacts at a young age could cause eye damage.
People suffering from the following should not wear colored contact lenses, as these eye conditions may be further irritated by inserting lenses:
- Any eye infections (Such as conjunctivitis)
- Any corneal conditions (Such as keratitis)
- Any allergic eye conditions (Such as hayfever)
- Any chronic disease of the eye (Such as glaucoma)
