Color contacts - brighten your eyes with color contact lenses

Color contacts come very handy when you want to change your look.


Whether you have light or dark eyes, want to change your eye color dramatically or enhance your natural color there are colored contacts that would suit your purpose. It is important to find colored lenses that are right for your natural eye color. These days color lenses are inexpensive and easy to get - you can get them online without any problems. Most popular colored contact lenses are Freshlook color contacts and Acuvue 2 Colors.

Color contacts – what’s available?

There are two major types of contact lenses that can change your eye color:

  • An enhancement tint contacts that are designed to enrich natural hue of your eyes (but not to change it). It is ideal if you have naturally blue eyes and want to make them deeper and more interesting. They don't really change your eye color, but make your eyes more interesting. Special lenses like Freshlook Dimensions also make your eyes appear larger. Unfortunately, if you have dark eyes this type of lenses won't work for you. You will need lenses with a strong color tint.

  • A color tint lenses that dramatically change your eye color. No matter whether you have light or dark eyes with color tint contacts you can obtain any new shade you desire.

There are also lenses that have visibility tint. Those should not be confused with colored lenses as they are NOT designed to affect the color of your eyes at all, so don't be fooled by their blue appearance. They have light tint of blue or green to make them more visible in the solution or in case you drop your lens.

The center of both color tinted and enhancement tint lenses is clear, so a person can see.

One disadvantage of colored lenses is that, if the lens moves a bit it can overlap your pupil. The same happens when your pupils get wider in the dark - part of the pupil might become covered by lens. That might slightly decrease your vision temporarily. This is mostly a problem with opaque color lenses, transparent colored contacts usually don't affect your vision at all.
