    Caring for color contact lenses is not at all difficult. However, it
    is very important to take proper care of your color contacts,
    otherwise your eyes can become irritated or even infected. Discover
    how to care for your colored contacts simple and fast.

    Whether you wear Freshlook color contacts, Acuvue 2 Colors,
    Expressions Colors, or custom-made color or special effect lenses,
    caring for them is exactly the same. All you need is a good contact
    lens solution, a contact lens case, a pair of soft plastic tweezers
    and a couple of minutes.

    First of all, you should use a proper contact lens solution for
    cleaning your colored lenses and storing them at night. Never use
    ordinary water - it is full of bacteria and won't clean your lenses
    properly anyway.

    The best solution to use is a no-rub multipurpose solution, like Opti-
    Free Express No-Rub. Most solutions require you to rub your lenses on
    the palm of your hand to clean them; however, rubbing can damage the
    color, which is why you need a no-rub solution. It is also a good idea
    to get a solution marked "for sensitive eyes" - even if your eyes are
    not sensitive, it can't hurt. Get a large bottle of solution, if you
    wear your color contact lenses every day. If you only wear them for
    special ocasions, though, you are better of with a smaller bottle
    because, once contact lens solution is opened, it is only good for six

    The days when you needed a saline solution for storing your lenses and
    a cleaner for cleaning them are long gone - multipurpose solutions
    have taken their place. A multipurpose solution can disinfect your
    color lenses and remove protein build-ups, so all you need to do is to
    put your lenses
