    I know that the DK/t of this combination would be quite low...
    something like 20 DK/t.
    But what i'm saying is: can i actually combine between both lenses to
    create a colored lens which fit my eyes and is colored ??? That way i
    can gain the comfort of the N&D lens and the fact that my eyes' color
    is changed. Assuming i don't sleep in my lenses - can i combine
    between the two lenses ??? is it healthy ? i just wanna know that
    there is no prohibition on doing it , or some precaution i should
    know, before doing it.... so is there ?

    Hi Tom,

    I am no expert, but beware of depriving your eyes of oxygen. The body
    has ways of adapting, which includes growing veins into your cornea.
    I doubt this will happen after one day, but if you get into patterns
    of contact lens abuse, it will happen faster than you think.

    What you might consider, is a pair colored contacts that you wear BY
    THEMSLVES and take out your N&D while you wear them. Some of the
    experts on this forum might have some thoughts on this...

    Just as a side thought, is there any chance that the plasics of the
    two lenses might fuse if your eyes are dry?

    The bottom line is that wearing two lenses instead of one will probably not
    to be satisfactory in terms of either comfort, eye health, or vision.
