5 Things to You Need To Know Before Trying Colored Contact Lenses

by Steven Jones Owner
Changing the natural color of your eye is an easy transformation that millions of women and men make every year for Halloween or any other special occasions. Changing the color of your eye require a lot more research and planning beforehand to avoid any infections or side effects.

  • They are safer than eye color-changing surgery

Some people actually going under the knife for changing the color of their eye from brown to blue. The eye color-changing surgical procedures are not approved in the United States. So, many people head to other countries for the operation, which sometimes results in permanent damage of the eye and they may even lose their eyesight. On the other hand, colored contact lenses are much safer than some of the touted surgical options that go into the eye and affect its natural pigment by trying to leech the pigment out of the eye.

  • They need to be taken care off for the same way regular lenses do

You should always clean the colored contact lenses before use as they go directly into your eyeballs. You should make sure to take them out before bed and store them in clean containers with the proper kind of saline solution.

  • They have different tints

There are three different levels of actual color when it comes to colored lenses.

    • Opaque lenses

Opaque lenses totally cover up your natural eye-color and replace it with whatever lens color you’ve chosen. You’ll need this type of tints to change the color of the eye if you have dark colored eyes.

Theatrical or costume contact lenses also fall into the category of opaque color tints. These lenses are long used in the movie and are now widely available for novelty use. You can temporarily transform yourself into an alien, gothic, or vampire. You can even wear the same type of avatar contact lenses used in the avatar movie.

    • Visibility Tint

Lenses with a “visibility” tint aren’t meant to change the color of your eye in any significant way. This usually is a light green or blue tint added to a lens for helping you see it better during insertion and removal. It is relatively faint and does not affect your eye color.

    • Enhancement tint

This is a solid but translucent tint that is a little darker than a visibility tint. It is meant to enhance the natural color of your eyes. It is best suited for people who have light-colored eyes and want to make their eye color more intense.

  • You can get them with vision correction or without

Colored lenses without a prescription are called “Plano” and are worn only for cosmetic reasons. Prescription colored contacts help correct lenses help correct your vision apart from transforming the appearance of your eye.

  • They come in different sizes

You know that fit of contact lenses are really important if you’ve even warned regular, non-colored lenses. It will roll around and fall out if a lens is too loose. On the other hand, you risk it squeezing your eyeball and causing scratches if it ‘too tight. This is why it is absolutely necessary to consult to eye specialists before purchasing colored contact lenses; otherwise, you’re putting your eye at serious risk.
