When it comes to coloured contact lenses, Australia now has a world-leading and special quality certified range. This means that not only do you get your hot little hands on some of the most amazing coloured lenses around, you also get colour eye contacts that you can rely on.
There are a couple of questions to ask yourself before you go and spend your hard earned money on coloured contacts that only cause you grief.
If you can follow a few key points about what to look for in coloured lenses, then you have a better chance of getting the best possible results.
The Do’s and Don’ts of coloured contacts
It’s a mistake to think that all coloured lenses are the same. There is, in fact, a huge difference between the top name and the rest.
Here’s what you need to ask and make sure you get a proper answer.
- Where are the coloured lenses made?
- What is the water content?
- Do the lenses come with any quality check or certification?
- Who is the supplier?
- How and who do I contact if there is an issue with the lenses?
This might seem like a long list to some people, but if you don’t know the answers to these simple questions then the answer to buying those coloured contact lenses is a clear – Don’t!
While wearing colour contact lenses is fun, there is a serious side to them and putting anything that could be harmful or dangerous in the area of your eye needs to be safe.
There is no point risking infection or injury to your eyes just because you didn’t do a quick check on what lenses you were buying and from where.
The Who, What, Where and How of coloured contacts
Knowing exactly where your new coloured lenses are made is vital to tracking the quality and the service you are going to get.
There is no point buying coloured contacts from a supplier in Australia but you don’t have any idea of where the actual lenses were made. They could be a small backyard outfit in heaven knows where and you are relying on the supplier to offer quality lenses purely on trust.
When it comes to quality lenses you will need coloured contacts with a water content of more than 40% or you will not and should not wear the lenses for very long.
You cannot rely on the details on the packet for quality control. Having a comment like ‘quality checked’ means little to nothing. Who is doing the check? Is it an in-house quality control method? What does that mean to you?
An external quality check is more important and especially when it is done to a recognised standard.
You cannot trust a company that you do not know to do rigorous quality control checks on their own products. This is where many sub-standard coloured contacts come into the market. Avoid these types of lenses at all costs.
Check your supplier and any special terms
Even when you are buying coloured contacts online, you can do a number of things to safeguard your eyes and protect yourself from fraudsters.
Doing a little research on the company and going through well sourced reviews can give you peace of mind that you are dealing with a legitimate business.
Where does the company operate from and where do they source their range of coloured lenses from?
With the reviews, read more than just a few. You will be able to tell the fake ones from the real. If the responses are over the top, then you can sense that they are something written by friends and family. Finding reviews like ones from Trustpilot can be very helpful.
These should cover different aspects of the process such as:
- The product
- The service
- The delivery
- Any special claims or circumstances
- Responses and refunds
Armed with this information, you can make a better judgement on what lenses are the best and who you are dealing with.
No contact for your coloured contact lenses
Remember that you are buying a product that will cover your eye.
You don’t want just any sort of coloured lenses. You want the best quality possible.
If you can find a supplier who is open and honest about the source of their coloured lenses, specific details like the water content and has proven quality certification, you are on the right track for some great contacts.
When the reviews back up that information and the dealings with the team are all positive even when things go wrong for some reason, you can be more assured that you will be taken seriously as a customer and not just a number.
Too many suppliers are happy to accept your order and take your money but there is precious little else that happens. There is a long list of disgruntled buyers who have lost their hard earned cash and have little to show for it – sometimes nothing at all arrives.
Check that there is a clear and meaningful return and refund policy in place and that you have two points of contact where you can follow up any issue.
Shoddy and dodgy operators will be happy to send you auto-reply emails supposedly updating the matter of your order or your refund and that is where it all ends. Don’t be another victim. Go with a trusted team.
