You may be wondering why. If you’re like us - you mayyyybe don’t exactly love to be told what to do ;). We promise, we aren’t feeding you arbitrary rules just to be bossy. So, we’ll tell you a little bit about why you want to avoid watersports (and shower) while wearing your colored contact lenses. And this applies to ANY contact lenses of any kind.
No matter how clear the water looks - yes, even in the brightest blue Caribbean waters, it is the most comfy and enjoyable natural home for a wide variety of microorganisms and bacteria. Whether it’s a swimming pool, lake, stream, ocean, hot tub, or plain ol’ tap water.
We aren’t trying to gross you out. You come into contact with these microbes all day every day and your body has defense mechanisms which keep you healthy and safe. Unfortunately, as safe and comfortable as our colored contact lenses are, they are not entirely natural. And that means they interfere with your body’s natural defense mechanisms.
