Plano contact lenses are cosmetic, non-prescription contact lenses with colours and/or patterns on the surface.
Like all contact lenses, these novelty lenses sit directly on the front surface of the eye and, as such, must be treated with the same degree of care as other types.
They are regulated in the same way as powered lenses and may only be fitted by, or under the supervision of, a registered optometrist, qualified dispensing optician or medical practitioner.
Your contact lens practitioner will advise you on the most suitable type of lens, how often you should wear them and replace them and how to look after them.
Regular aftercare check-ups are essential to ensure that your eyes remain healthy and that you are using the best lenses for your particular needs.
It is also essential that you take proper care in cleaning and disinfecting these plano lenses and their storage cases. Only use the care products recommended by your practitioner and follow the instructions carefully.
When properly fitted and cared for, plano cosmetic lenses should provide trouble-free use. However, it should be remembered the incorrect use of contact lenses can lead to serious ocular complications.
