Summary: Colored contact lenses can add that unique look that you’ve been looking for.
Colored contact lenses offer a unique way to change the color of your eyes and create a customized look that will enhance your everyday look. Whether it be for a special occasion or a Halloween party, colored contact lenses have risen in popularity over the years. If you’re new to the scene and are looking for a colorful change, here are some tips from Lens.com to get your started.
The Different Types of Contacts
Most colored contacts are designed with the intention to mimic the natural look of the iris. Because this region of the eye is made up of colorful lines and shapes, some colored contacts will feature a series of colored dots and lines to help make the lens look more natural. Certain products like Freshlook Color Blends for example, offer more moisture for a more comfortable wearing experience.
There are three common tints that are used in colored contacts:
The visibility tint is a light green or blue tint added to a lens. This allows you to see it better during the insertion and removal process, or if you drop it on accident. Visibility tints are faint in color and will not affect the overall look of the lens.
The enhancement tint is a translucent tint that is darker than the visibility tint. An enhancement tint is designed to enhance the natural eye color, as the name implies. Colored contact lenses that include this tint are usually worn by those who have light-colored eyes.
Opaque tints are non-transparent tints that change the eye color completely. If you have dark eyes, this tint is highly recommended as it will seamlessly change the color while hiding the dark brown color of the iris.
