Need advice on contact lenses!
I am in need of some advice about contact lenses.
Reason being i have an unknown allergy highly suspected to be something related to an oil from food and when in contact with either eye makes them swell up.
I have been seriously contemplating adding contact lenses to some of my cosplay but i need advice about them due to my allergy. I don't want to put them in and then for my eye to swell it sounds absolutely terrifying.
If anyone here could give me any advice along this it would be greatly appreciated!

Honestly if you have any sort of potential problems with your eyes then its probably best to get an appointment with an optition, arrange a fitting and ask their advice. Someone with medical knowledge will be able to advise you on your specific issues.

General good practice with contacts to avoid irritation is to buy them from a trusted seller, many of which are listed in the contact lens resource thread. Keep them clean, as any specs of dirt can cause serious irritation/ infection. Only ever clean them in proper cleaning solution. Also they should never feel uncomfortable. If they cause you any discomfort even after you've given them time to settle down then take them out. Poorly made or defective contacts can permenantly damage your eyes. I don't want to worry you though, I've used them many times without any problems and just make sure I know where I'm getting them from and that they don't get dirty. Especially since you have problems with your eyes its better to be safe than sorry.
