Color Eye Contacts to Enhance Eye Color

Use color eye contacts to enhance your natural eye color.

I once tried colored contact lenses but that was many years ago before disposable soft colored lenses were available. Today the colored lens market is growing at a rapid rate.

Fuelled by celebrities changing their eye color as often as their clothing, it seems as though everyone wants to change the look of their eyes too.

And by that I mean EVERYONE, as colored contact lenses are available both in prescription and non prescription ie. zero power or plano form.

There are two types of colored contact lenses, ones that ENHANCE eye color, making it brighter and more sparkling and ones that completely CHANGE eye color; these are known as opaque colored contacts.

Acuvue, the brand I swear by for my own clear lenses, make very comfortable color contacts in both color enhancing shades and also opaque color changing shades. They are called Acuvue 2 Colours.

Color enhancing lenses are only suitable for people with light eyes, mainly pale green, gray or blue and these color eye contacts are only available in a few color shades, variations of blue through to green.

The beauty about the Acuvue 2 Color range is that the lenses are disposable so you can either wear them for 2 weeks or for 6 days and nights continuously, then discard them.

NB: You should only wear this type of lens during the night if your eye doctor has prescribed it; personally I believe eyes need to breathe properly and I would rather get longer use out of the lenses by wearing them for 2 weeks but during the daytime only.

Disposable Colored Contact Lenses

The introduction of disposable colored contact lenses has made changing or enhancing eye color both easy and affordable. Prior to that, many colored contacts were available as expensive custom lenses only and therefore only accessible to the rich and famous.

It is worth noting that while there are now many different options available from all the major optical brands like Acuvue and Freshlook, not all the lenses are available in sizes to fit everyone. Acuvue Colours, for example, are available in 2 base curves of 8.4 and 8.7 but the opaque version is only available with a curvature of 8.3.

Which makes it all the more important to visit your optician for a color eye contacts FITTING as you don't want to order the wrong size online!
