I wanted to know if it's safe to wear two pairs of contacts at the same time. I have a pair of clear prescription contacts and a pair of colored non-prescription contacts. Can I put the clear ones on and then put the colored ones on top of the clear ones?
Do not do this. One contact on top of another can alter the fit of the prescription lens and will diminish how much oxygen your cornea receives.
