How long can i use the contact lenses?
12 Months disposable contact lenses can be used as many times as you want within12 months after opening. Please bear in mind that contact lenses is wear & tear item and the more frequent you wear, you shall dispose it sooner. Says you wear them daily, then you shall dispose them within 3 - 6 months.

What is the shelf life of contact lenses?
The life span of unopened contact lens is stated on the information section on the bottle/blister. Example: EXPIRED DATE 1 DEC 2025, LIFE SPAN 12 MONTHS. If a contact lens is being opened on 7 April 2020. it shall last until 7 October 2020 (depends on your wearing frequency). If it is unopened, it is able to last until 1 Dec 2025.
What is Base Curve (B.C), Diameter (DIA) & Effect Diameter (EFF DIA)?
Base curve (B.C) is the curvature of the back surface of the contact lens where it determines the type of fit the contact lens must have to match the natural curvature of your eye.
Diameter (DIA) is how big of the contact lens. The bigger it is the harder you insert the contact lens to your eye.
Effect diameter (Eff DIA) is how big the graphical part of the lens, so the bigger it is gives you a more dolly look!

Some of our contact lenses are available from power -0.00 to -8.00 while some are available in plano (0.00) only.

We do not have contact lenses for astigmatism, but stay tune for more updates!
What kind of material are you contact lenses made of?
Depending on the type of lenses, we currently have:
i) 12 months disposable contacts use Polymacon which contains 38% water.
ii) Daily disposable contacts use Terpolymer which contains 55% water.
Which is better? Daily or 12 Months Disposable?
For beginners who have difficulties cleaning your contact lenses every night, daily softlens is the best choice as you throw away the lenses that has impurities and protein built up at the end of day.
If you don't mind going through a detailed caring process, contact lens other than daily disposable is fine, they are thicker and last longer than daily disposable. This is to prevent drying during storage and to last longer.
The power of the contact lenses is correct but why is my vision blurry?
The inner diameter of every contact lens is different, inner diameter is the transparent part at the center of the lens. If you are not used to wearing contact lens with small diameter (usually seen in cosplay contact lenses) , you will feel that the vision is being blocked by the decorative pattern of the contact lens.
Are your colored contacts safe to use?
All our brands colored or clear contacts are certified by International body such as ISO (under 13485) and CE and they are approved by Korea FDA (also known as KFDA) & China FDA (also known as CFDA) . They are manufactured under strict process before allowed to place in the market.
And some brands such as Acuvue, Bausch & Lomb, Coopervision are FDA-approved. Sweety Pro Black is also FDA-approved and we will be having more soon.
What colored contacts are good for beginner?
When it comes to choosing colored contacts, there are several factors to consider including diameter, water content, and oxygen permeability. Here are some general guidelines that may help you as a beginner:
Diameter: The diameter of the contact lens refers to its size. As a beginner, it's best to choose a diameter that's close to the size of your natural eye. Most contact lenses have a diameter between 13.8 mm and 14.5 mm.
Water content: The water content of the contact lens can affect how comfortable they feel in your eyes. Generally, contact lenses with a higher water content tend to be more comfortable, but they may not be as durable. As a beginner, you may want to choose contacts with water content between 40% and 60%.
Oxygen permeability: Oxygen permeability refers to the amount of oxygen that can pass through the contact lens and reach your eye. It's important to choose contact lenses that allow your eyes to breathe and receive enough oxygen. As a beginner, you may want to choose contact lenses with a high oxygen permeability rating to ensure that your eyes stay healthy and comfortable.
It's important to note that the diameter and water content of the contact lenses may vary depending on the brand and type of contact lens you choose. Always consult with an eye doctor or optometrist to determine which type of contact lenses are best for your eyes, as they can vary based on individual factors such as prescription, eye shape, and sensitivity.
Wear & Care
It’s not hard to take care of your contact lenses/contact lens’ case! But here are some tips for you to make sure you get your gleaming eyes while staying safe!
What is the age suitable to wear contact lenses?
We believe that successful contact lens wear depends more on responsibility and attitude than age. We recommend you contact your Eye Care Professional to determine if your child is a good candidate for contact lenses.
Do contact lenses feel uncomfortable at first?
For beginners, it is normal to experience different sensation compare to bare eyes (without contact lens). Do not forget to soak the contact lens in designated solution overnight before wearing. If you wear the contact lens directly after removing from the bottle, your eyes might feel stingy (the solution in the bottle is preservative water, not cleansing solution for contact lens).
Can contact lenses melt or lost in my eyes?
Are you worried your contact lenses will melt in sauna or over barbeque? Don’t worry, this is false. The lens material can only decompose at temperatures much higher than the boiling point of water. Also, it’s physically impossible your contact lens will slide behind your eyes as a membrane covers your eye and connects to the inside of your eyelids.
Are colored contact lenses safe?
It’s important to find cosmetic contact lenses that do not compromise on health and safety. One of the most common problems is that many colored contact lenses leave your eyeballs in direct contact with their pigments and at Sweetycon our contact lenses do not do so. Read how to prevent eyes’ infection here.
Can i wear contact lenses after LASIK / Cataract surgery?
Basically yes can but we recommend you to consult your doctor/eye care professional for advices on this.
How long in a day can i wear contact lenses? Can i sleep with it?
Do not wear contact lens for a whole day without removing it at all. The encouraged duration for wearing contact lens is only for 4-8 hours a day (4 hours for beginners).
And no, you cannot sleep with your contact lenses. Take off your contact lens and rub with solution before your nap if you can. If you happen to fall asleep unintentionally while wearing contact lens, use eyedrops and leave it for few minutes, then only remove it.
Can i wear dried out contact lenses?
Yes & no. If the contact lenses were not dried out completely and you can revive them to original shape without seeing any chipped, damage or torn part, it should not be a problem.
However, if the contact lenses are unable to be revived to original shape or there is chipped, damage or torn part on the contact lenses, you shall discard the contact lenses as wearing this might result in severe eye irritation, bacteria infection and physical damage to the cornea.
Can i put contact lenses directly to the contact lens case after wearing? Can i wear contact lenses directly from the contact lens case before wearing?
It's a BIG NO! Before putting the contact lenses into the contact lens's case, it must be cleansed to avoid bacteria breeding. Cleansing of contact lenses can be done manually (rub gently using hand) or using a contact lens cleansing device. Same goes to before wearing contact lenses, cleansing should be done too.
What kind of solution can i use to soak, rinse and store my contact lenses or clean my contact lens case?
You can use multipurpose solution. The pH for the multipurpose solution is different from our eyes, so it is a must to soak the contact lens with multi-purpose solution to neutralize the contact lenses 's pH for at least 8 hours.
Can i use tap water to soak, rinse or store your contact lenses?
Never try and clean your contact lenses with bottled water or tap water, even it's boiled. This can lead to serious eye infections!
Can i use multipurpose solution as eyedrop?
Usage of contact lens cleansing solution as eye drops is not encouraged as cleansing solution contains preservative and disinfecting components which may cause irritation whereas eye drops normally contains contents that are formulate according to the tears to suit the eye environment.
I am new to contact lenses, how to use it?
1. Please soak the contact lenses in the multipurpose solution at least 4 hours. If possible, 8 hours or overnight.
2. After wearing each time, clean the contact lenses with multipurpose solution. You can clean it with traditional way, palm & fingers or modern way, contact lens cleaner.
3. Then store the contact lenses in the contact lens case with fresh solution. Always check the solution level, says once a week, to check if there is still solution left, as it may evaporate. Change new solution every 1-2 week.
4. Rinse the contact lenses before wearing next time. Repeat step 2 to 4 every time after use.
