"Cosmetic" contact lenses should be treated just like any other contact lens: as a medical device which should be prescribed and fitted by a competent eye care professional. These SHOULD NOT be purchased from gas stations or at flea markets. Contact lenses need to be cleaned and disinfected carefully, and replaced frequently. An optometrist or ophthalmologist needs to examine and fit you with the proper lens, and recommend and demonstrate the proper care for the lens. You should be able to wear contact lenses while pregnant. The safest modality is daily disposable, since you would throw away the lens at the end of the day, put a fresh one on each day, and not need solutions to clean or disinfect.
