Before you start experimenting with any kind of contact lens, you should always consult with your eye doctor first. Contact lenses are not for everyone and you should always ensure you have the green light that contact lenses, colored or not, will be suitable for your particular eye.

The best replacement cycle is up to personal preference. Solotica Hidrocor and Solotica Natural Colors collections are best sellers as they are extremely comfortable, utilise amazing color technology, and come in a yearly lens which is extremely cost-effective.

People who opt for daily colored contacts can experiment with their color before committing to a monthly or a yearly lens. Knowing when you should replace your colored contacts is important, so make sure you follow the guidance of your lenses.
