How To Handle Discomfort Caused By Coloured Contacts Halloween

Published

on

Colored contacts Halloween are the craze nowadays, and I don’t mean just the Halloween craze. There are many people who you would find using Halloween contacts on a daily basis. You would find cosplayers one after another modeling with crazy contact lenses or those vloggers trying different approaches to get more views and followers.

With all that you will find that colored contacts Halloween are not just available in daily disposable, like before. Now, they are widely available in weekly or two weekly categories.  Such is their demand right now.

Still, there are different types of lenses available, with different expiry and they come in different sizes too, depending on your eye measurements. Blend that with the cleaning of lenses with different solutions, all that becomes the reason that you feel discomfort.

Fitting

The first reason you feel discomfort because of Halloween contacts is that it may not fit into your eyes properly. The sizes of our eyes are not always the same and you may require contact lenses different in measurement to fit your eyes. Even a slight change in the size of the lens will cause discomfort.

Allergies

Some people have allergies with the colored tint on the Halloween contact lenses. They are better advised to use regular contact lenses. In another case, some people feel irritation in allergy season and they have to stop wearing lenses in these seasons.

Type of Lens

The type of lens matters a lot. There are two types, soft and rigid gas permeable lenses (RGP). The rigid contact lenses are always discomfortable at the start you need some time to get used to them. If you need to haste, for any reason, then you can switch to soft contact lenses which are more comfortable and allow more provision for oxygen.

Solutions used to sanitize the lens

Before we get into this, remember, lenses always must be cleaned with a solution and not water. Now,  there are different brands of solution, some brands may not agree with your eyes. Also, when the lenses get old the protein from your teans build up on the lens, cleaning with the solution never completely cleans the lens from deposits. The buildup usually irritates. If any solution doesn’t suit you, you can change the brand.

Nutritional Supplements

Keep your diet clean and take enough natural supplements. No matter how much tear drops you use, you need your eyes to keep producing quality tears. You need natural nutrients like fatty acids and important vitamins so eyes can keep producing enough quality tears. This will ensure that your eyes will not get dry and the lens will not feel irritating.

Contact Lenses For Dry Eyes

Now sometimes things can get a bit complicated. Your colored contacts Halloween may fit properly with your eyes but still you feel discomfort.

This could be because your eyes are not agreeing with the lens type and drying early. Secondly, with protein and calcium depositing on your lens, it may be making wearing contact lenses difficult.

In such cases you can choose to change your lens type from weekly to daily disposable as you would be rid of deposits. But, if the problem is with the structure of the lens, then your eye care provider may give you different type of lens such as the hydrogel which contains more water content. Some people need more water content in their lenses to feel comfortable.

Proper Maintenance

most of the time the discomfort is man made. How? You do not clean your Halloween contact lenses regularly. It is necessary that you rub and clean your Halloween lenses with disinfectant solution everyday and store them carefully in the storage cases. Proper cleaning and maintenance guarantees healthy eyes.

Wear Your Contacts for less time

Maybe the discomfort in your eyes is because you are wearing your contact lenses for far too long. Lenses cover your eyes, hinders the provision of oxygen to the eyes. Now your eyes collect oxygen from the surrounding air and not from the blood inside you. When you cover your eyes with lenses it gets difficult for the air to get through no matter how soft or gas permeable the lenses are. Wearing them too long will dry your eyes and it will become very discomfortable for you.

Get a new Pair

Never hesitate to get a new pair of contact lenses. No matter how expensive they are, nothing is more important than your eyes. If the lenses have gotten old, there are scratches or it is torn then dispose of it. Go to your eye care provider or a renowned brand who sells a quality product and buy a new pair of colored contacts Halloween. A little carelessness can cause much damage.

Less Eye Make-up

Your eye makeup usually caused particles and debris to enter your eye and stick onto the lens. In order to avoid that you must reduce the amount of eye makeup you use. Rather than using powder cosmetics switch to the ones which have more cream content. When applying makeup always be careful. It is better to always wear lenses after makeup.

Wedding Photography Trends – The First Look

Three Reasons Why Every Wedding Couple Should Have A First Look 

One of the most popular wedding photography trends is the “first look.” While seeing each other before the ceremony has been considered taboo in the past, more-and-more couples are choosing to have first looks. Here are three reasons why every couple should consider having a first look.

First Looks Save A Lot of Time on Your Timeline 

WeddingOne of the most important reasons to have a first look is because it can save you time on your wedding timeline. By choosing to see each other before the ceremony, you can take most or all of your posed portraits before the ceremony. This can include bridal party photos, family portraits, and a good chunk of your couple portraits. If you choose not to see each other before the ceremony, you will need to squeeze in most of your posed portraits during cocktail hour. While this is possible, getting all of these groupings done in an hour can be stressful. Especially if you have a large bridal party or a lot of family portrait groups.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with choosing not to have a first look. If you choose to go this route, I recommend listing out all of the posed groupings. By listing everything out, this will ensure that you make the best use of the hour after the ceremony. Also, make sure that the people who will be in these photos are aware that they will need to be close by for portraits. Having to chase people down for posed portraits can also eat up a lot of time.

First Looks Make Great Photo Opportunities 

WeddingAnother benefit of having a first look is that you can get a bunch of great pictures. In my experience, these pictures end up being some of my client’s favorite shots. Capturing your expressions, as you see each other for the first time, is one of the most special moments of the day.

First Looks Help Get Some of The Nerves Out Before the Ceremony 

WeddingLast but not least, seeing each other before the ceremony can really help with your nerves. While you will still be a little nervous during the ceremony, having the opportunity to see each other and talk is really helpful. In my experience as a Wedding Photographer, there are not many opportunities for couples to spend time alone on their wedding day. After the first look, I recommend taking a few minutes to hold hands, walk, and tell each other how you are feeling. While this little detail may not seem like much, it is often the only chance couples have to take a deep breath together. After the ceremony, the pace picks up and the night is over before you even realize it.

Hopefully, these three reasons why every couple should have a first look have helped put your wedding day in perspective. I highly recommend taking a good look into including this on your wedding photography timeline.

So let’s have a glance at some amazing tips and tricks that will help us in saving tons of money next time we shop.

Out of season Shopping is a must

It may sound weird that during hot summer when the sun is shining with all its power we are buying a warm sweater or coats but it’s one of the ways to save money. If we will do our shopping based on the anticipation of what’s next or will go for pre-season shopping which is exciting it’s going to cost us lots of money.

Be easy-going with trends

Trends have a beautiful habit of changing very quickly and we all loved to follow them but ultimately what happens is either our clothes for years hang inside our wardrobe or we give them away. Is this real money-saving as trends are not at all money-saving so instead of buying the trendy items it’s good if we buy only those which we seriously will wear?

Budget is important

If we do not set a budget we often overspend. Set a serious budget and see how much amount you can spend on a particular piece of clothing.

Higher the quality more the durability

Higher quality clothes are bit expensive but if you will initially pay more for higher quality brands you will save in long run as those clothes for years are going to be of fine quality but still be stick to your budget.

Keep track with sales

Keep your self updated regarding the sales weather its mall or normal shops or any online shopping sites they keep on bringing sales on regular basis and this is the best way through which you can save lots of money.

No harm in borrowing

If you know that you are going to wear a particular piece of clothing just for once then there is no harm in borrowing it from a friend or a family member. Outfits bought just for a particular occasion and not wearing it ever again is wastage of money

Check dry clean only tag

If you are buying only those clothes regularly that clearly mentions dry clean only you are just increasing your expenditure on clothing so avoid frequent purchase of such items.

Coupons and vouchers

Number of online sites on daily basis comes up with different vouchers and coupons so that each time you do shopping with them you save lots of money. So each time you are going for online shopping do not forget to apply the coupon and vouchers from UAEPayingless like Souq KSA Offers.

Be a designer
