Colored Contacts

Colored contacts have become increasingly popular over the years as a way to enhance your look and experiment with different eye colors. Whether you want to change your eye color for a special occasion or simply for everyday wear, colored contacts offer a fun and versatile option.
 

Different Types of Colored Contacts

 

When it comes to colored contacts, there are various types to choose from, depending on your preferences and needs. The three main categories are cosmetic, enhancement, and opaque lenses.
 

Cosmetic lenses are designed to completely change the color of your eyes. These lenses come in a wide range of shades, from natural hues such as blue, green, and brown, to more vibrant colors like purple, gray, and even red. Cosmetic lenses can create a dramatic transformation and give you the eye color you desire.
 

Enhancement lenses, on the other hand, are designed to enhance your natural eye color rather than change it completely. They add depth and intensity to your eyes, making them appear brighter and more vibrant. Enhancement lenses are ideal if you want a subtle change that enhances your natural beauty.
 

Opaque lenses are specifically designed to cover dark-colored eyes. They are ideal for individuals with naturally dark eyes who want to achieve a lighter or more vibrant eye color. Opaque lenses are often used in theatrical or costume applications as they can create a striking and captivating look.

The Importance of a Contact Lens Exam

 

A contact lens exam is essential to ensure that your eyes are healthy and suitable for wearing colored contacts. During the exam, an optometrist will evaluate your eye health, measure your eye curvature, and determine the appropriate contact lens prescription for you.
 

The contact lens exam also involves a fitting process to ensure that the lenses fit properly on your eyes. Ill-fitting contacts can cause discomfort, irritation, and even damage to your eyes. By having an optometrist conduct a contact lens exam, you can ensure that your lenses fit correctly and are safe to wear.
 

Additionally, a contact lens exam allows the optometrist to provide you with proper instructions on how to insert, remove, and care for your colored contacts. They will educate you on the correct cleaning and disinfection methods to maintain the health and longevity of your lenses. Following these guidelines will help prevent eye infections and other complications associated with wearing contacts.
