Prom is quickly approaching! You’ve maybe got your outfit figured out – the tux is rented or the perfect dress has been found. But have you considered completing your look by ditching your glasses for the night? Many don’t realize how easy it is to get contacts for those times when specs just won’t do. As you countdown to prom, be sure to add, “visit eye doctor” to your get prom ready list.
Whether you’re interested in wearing contact lenses all the time or just want to surprise your friends for one special night, there’s a lens that will work for you. For example, Proclear 1 Day daily disposable contact lenses are perfect for occasional wear since you just throw them out at the end of the night. If you want to make it through the prom after party, then extended wear lenses like Biofinity contact lenses would make a great choice since they’re approved for overnight wear. Talk to your eye doctor to see which lens is best for you.
If you’re wearing eye-makeup to prom and are new to wearing contact lenses, be careful by putting your lenses in before application so you won’t transfer any oils or powders to the lenses and use only hypo-allergenic brands.
Be sure to make your eye appointment two weeks before prom just in case your lenses need to be shipped. It’s very important to get a prescription as obtaining contacts without one either through unlicensed merchants or borrowing from friends can lead to sight-threatening conditions.
