How do I choose the right soft contact lenses on Mislens?

Mar 26,2024 | Mislens FAQ

Contact lenses are generally divided into two types: hard contact lenses and soft contact lenses.

hard contact lenses(Rigid contact lenses) have good oxygen permeability, and strong materials, and can adjust and correct vision to a certain extent. The lens diameter is small, and they are a type that becomes more comfortable the longer you wear them. However, hard contact lenses can only be obtained by going to the hospital. They are slightly more expensive and have a longer adaptation period. It usually takes about half a month for the eyes to adapt to them before they feel any discomfort.

For the above reasons, most people mainly buy soft contact lenses. The lenses on our Mislens website are all soft contact lenses, so today I will tell you how to choose the right soft contact lenses.

Key points for purchasing soft contact lenses at Mislens

1. Look at the material

Soft contact lens materials are generally divided into two types: hydrogel (HEMA material) and silicone hydrogel (HEMA+silicon).

Hydrogel (HEMA material) is currently a commonly used material. It is cost-effective, has the advantages of softness and comfort, and is suitable for people with healthy eyes. The lenses of our mislens are mainly made of this material.

Silicone hydrogel (HEMA + silicone) is expensive but has excellent performance, is more comfortable to wear, and has better oxygen permeability. For example, 🔗Mislens 1-Day Clear contact lenses.

2. Look at the color

Soft contact lenses are divided into two types: clear contact lenses and colored contact lenses.

Clear contact lenses are generally light blue and colorless after wearing. For example,  🔗Mislens 1-Day Clear contact lenses.

There are more options for cosmetic contact lenses. There are many patterns, colors, and diameters. After wearing them, they can enlarge the eyes and beautify them. Such as a collection of 🔗Mislens Color contact lenses.

3. Look at the diameter

The most common diameter range is 13.5mm-14.5mm. Some contact lenses may exceed this range. Wearing contact lenses exceeding this diameter is not recommended. Mislens contact lenses are generally available in diameters ranging from 14.0mm, 14.2mm, and 14.5mm, with a few Halloween contact styles available in 22mm diameter.

4. Look at the moisture content

Moisture content is key to the comfort and shape of your lenses.

The range of moisture content is generally around 38%-60%.

Many people have a misunderstanding when choosing soft contact lenses. They think that "the higher the water content, the better, and the higher the water content, the more hydrating they are."

The high water content will indeed make the lenses softer and have better oxygen permeability, but too high water content will make the lenses easily deformed, and the lenses will absorb moisture from the eyes, making the glasses prone to dryness and discomfort.

Therefore, the moisture content must be moderate, not higher is better.

5. Replacement Cycle

The current Replacement Cycles of soft contact lenses are: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and Yearly. Currently, our Mislens website only sells daily and Yearly lenses, and weekly and quarterly lenses will be launched one after another.

Daily disposable lenses are the safest and most reliable to use and are less likely to breed bacteria and eye problems. However, they are not very cost-effective and are more difficult for ordinary people to consume. They are more suitable for first-time users who want to try contact lenses to see if they are suitable.  🔗Mislens 30PCS Clear Daily disposable contact lenses

Weekly, monthly, quarterly, and half-yearly disposables are more suitable for people who wear them all year round. At the same time, the wearing cycle is also more suitable. You can choose according to your preferences.

Yearly disposables are the most cost-effective, but because of the long use cycle, for your health, we recommend replacing them every 6 months and not wearing them for a long time (more than 10 hours). Long-term use can easily breed bacteria and some sediments. It is not very friendly to the eyes, so we recommend that you pay attention to cleaning it during daily use.
