Brief Answer:
No problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You can use blue colored contact lens it would not cause color blindness. That is a myth that it can cause color blindness.

It is safe but be careful about other general precautions while using contact lens like hygiene and do not use longer than 8 hours a day.

Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Use contact only in the office

Detailed Answer:
Wearing contacts during the journey and traffic is not a good practice. You can wear them in the office after washing hands.

By this you have only 8 hours of use and avoid dust and infections in the traffic.

Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Increased chances of infection

Detailed Answer:
The dust, micro and the chemicals in the polluted air would cause further damage to the cornea which is already not getting enough oxygen because of the contacts. So it is better to remove the contacts and let it get enough oxygen from the free air.

The problems could be fungal and bacterial infections, corneal injury.
