sailoralison: Cosplayers, I need your help!
If you wear colored lenses/circle lenses for cosplay (or any reason really) I would like your thoughts!
I will be wearing my circle lenses this year at Animaritime and I was very nervous about wearing them for 6-8 hours. The longest I’ve been able to do is 2 hours then I get paranoid they will…
I haven’t cosplayed at anime conventions though I have gone through wearing my circle lenses for a whole 12 hours with no problem. It really depends on your tolerance to your contacts and the type of solution you use.
My suggestion is to use BioTru contact lens solution. Since I have switched to this solution I have had NO problems with it when wearing contacts over 6 hours. I also have Rohto Lycee Contact Lens eyedrop on hand when I feel that my eyes needs a little refresher. Yes you can use these eye drops while wearing the lenses. Or use any eyedrops that is suitable for contact lens.
If you haven’t gotten use to wearing lenses over 2 hours you should try every other day or every two days to increase the length of wearing you lenses. This way you know yourself if your eyes can tolerate the extensive wears.
Also if you are switching out contacts to suit your cosplay needs use eye drops in between switching and give your eyes at least an hour to 2 to breathe a bit, before putting on the other contacts. Not a great suggestion to do a switch as you don’t want to traumatize your eyes. Why not do the different cosplay the next day? Unless the convention doesn’t span for three days like most convention I am use to.
That’s all I can think of right now.
