Colored contact lenses need utmost care, meticulous cleaning & diligent handling.

Why should you Avoid Rubbing Colored Contact Lenses?

Usually contact lenses (non-colored) are suggested to be rubbed once in a while for cleaning. Contrary to this, colored contact lenses should not be rubbed since they are manufactured with sandwich printing that keeps the pigment trapped between two soft layers of plastic. Rubbing colored contact lenses will cause the dye leak through due to which you may find your contacts bleeding the color.
