It is said that the real beauty of the eye is defined by its lashes and to some the colour of the pupil. Long, dark and beautiful eyelashes have some sort of appeal that the eye looks absolutely gorgeous. For this many young girls and women die to have long and thick eyelashes, and this choice drives them towards the purchases of various lashes enhancing formulas. Eye lens contacts also known as circle lenses are colored contacts, sometimes in weird shades like violet and pink that make the eyes appear larger because they cover not just the iris, as normal lenses do, but also part of the whites. The lenses give wearers a childlike, doe-eyed appearance.

Mascaras are one of the most adored women cosmetic because it provides a layer of style and beauty to the eye. Similarly, the trend of wearing fake eyelashes is also widely seen.  Women curl them, tint them, perm them and coat them in layers of mascara to achieve the perfect look. But even that is not enough. It seems we are now addicted to gluing layers of fake eyelashes to our lids and wearing eye contacts lenses in order to replicate the celebrity look of, Nicky Minaj, Tyra Banks, Rihanna and other showbiz stars. There are ample artificial ways to fulfill the desire of getting bold eye, but how about the negative effects of eyelash extensions and eye contact lenses?

These eye contact lenses might be just another beauty fad if not for the facts that they are contraband and that eye doctors express grave concern over them. According to optometrist Valentine touching your eye and inserting a foreign object has the potential to introduce bacteria to the eye. These bacteria can cause infections and discharge. He equally added that if your contacts have hard-to-see debris on them, or if you’re careless while putting them in or taking them out, you could scratch your cornea or otherwise damage your eye. Some people just can’t get comfortable in contacts. They experience itching, irritation, dry eyes or consistently runny eyes the very first time I tried them. The thought of touching the eye or putting something in the eye also made me uncomfortable. Putting them in and taking them out requires a learning curve and an adjustment period that some people aren’t willing or able to make.

Cosmetic boutiques have reported booming sales of synthetic lashes. But experts warn there are dangers from overuse yet the wearing of double layers of the lashes has become the latest trend. Hair restoration surgeon Dr Bessam Farjo said he had treated patients who were left with gaps in their lashes due to overuse of the synthetic lashes. He added that” The glue used can create tension and can pull out the natural lashes when removed. I would advise caution. If you use them gently take them off, don’t wear them all the time, it will be fine. But there is potential for causing damage but it can vary from per to person because not everyone’s lashes or hair is as vulnerable as the next person.” The glue which bonds the lash strips to the eyelid can cause irritation if the lashes are slept in and the glue is not removed properly.

It can be an issue if you are older because your eyelashes grow differently or are not as vital. It’s mainly a genetic thing some people have better eyelashes and some don’t. Most of the time if you damage your hair or the eyelashes, the body will recover. If you stop using whatever is causing the damage then the eyelashes can recover and grow. But if you have caused permanent damage and there is a gap in the eyelash, it is possible to surgically plant hairs there. Most often for the surgical plant, hair is either removed from the back of the head or behind the ear.

Despite the fact they have been around for years, it seems false lashes, which are a relatively cheap way of creating a dramatic look, are more popular than ever. Not everybody is the same but they do have the potential to cause damage if you persistently wear them all the time, especially with double layers, or if not removed properly and eventually the weight might affect them. And worthy to note is the fact that eye contact lenses are not worn during sleep. Therefore ladies be content with your natural eyes or avoid excesses.
