The YouTube Channel Fiona Frills has recently posted a super interesting video of her trying on four different colours of Sclera contacts and give us a few tips if you ever want to give it a try.
A Scleral lens, also known as a Scleral contact lens and ocular surface prostheses, is a large contact lens that rests on the sclera and creates a tear-filled vault over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment. Most people buy them in a variety of colours for events such as Halloween or Comicon and you can wear your sclera lenses for 4 to 6 hours at a time as they are made for occasional and not daily wearing.
Sclera Lenses is an online brand which you can order all different types of contact lenses, big, small, patterned, animal eye or one solid colour from $20 up to $80 depending on your preference. To put the really large contact lenses in can be quite tricky and, possibly, quite painful depending on whether you use contact lenses already and know how to insert the big ones into your eyes – just don't sleep with them in!
See the video for some tips and tricks on how to put in big contact lenses for beginners.
