Things to Know about Colored Contact Lenses before Buying Them Online

by Steven Jones Owner
Whether you want to enhance your everyday look or rock a crazy design for Halloween and other special occasion, colored contact lenses allows you to change the color of your eye and create a look that’s bold, subtle or anywhere in between. Color contacts are available with different online stores in both plano and prescription forms.

Plano color contacts

It is worn purely for cosmetic purposes for changing the color of the eye and have no lens power for vision correction.

Prescription contacts

Prescription contact lenses can correct astigmatism, hyperopia (farsightedness), and myopia (nearsightedness) as well as enhancing or completely changing the color of your eye for Halloween or special occasion.

The cost of colored contact lenses can be significantly more than regular contact lenses but their ability to change the eye color for many wearers is well worth it.

Type of color contacts

Majority of color lenses are precisely designed to accurately mimic the natural look of the colored part of the eye, known as iris. Some lenses features a series of tiny colored dots and radically arranged colored shapes and lines for helping the lenses appear more natural on the eye. These lenses come in three kinds of tints, which are briefly discussed below.

Opaque tint

It is a non-transparent tint, which can change the eye color completely. You’ll need opaque tint of colored contact lenses to change the color of eye if you have dark eyes. The lenses with opaque tints comes in a wide range of colors, including gray, brown, amethyst, blue, violet, green, and hazel.

Enhancement tint

It is a solid but see-through (translucent) tint that is a little darker than a visibility tint. It is meant to enhance the natural colors of your eye as the name implies. This type of tint is best for people who have light colored eyes and want to make the color of their eyes more intense.

Visibility tint

This type of tint helps you see the lens better during the insertion or removal by adding a light green or blue tint to a lens. These tints do not affect the color of eyes as they are relatively faint.

Choosing the right color

The color of the contact lenses best suited for your eyes depends upon a large number of factors such as skin tone and hair color. Choosing the right color for Halloween or special occasion ultimately depends on the kind of look you want to achieve — natural-looking, subtle, dramatic or daring.

Lenses for light colored eyes:

You want to choose an enhancement tint that defines the edges of your iris and deepens your natural color if you want to change the color of your eyes but in a more subtle way.

Lenses for dark colored eyes:

If you have dark colored eyes, then opaque colored tints are the best choice for you. You should opt for special effect tints like zombie contacts, avatar contacts, rinnegan contacts, and vampire lenses if you really want to stand out from the crowd.
