Make a statement, or be bold, and explore a more adventurous side with colored contacts. For eyes that are light or dark, it is easy to create beautiful effects by combining colors that blend naturally with your eye color.
There are colored contacts for light eyes and colored contacts for dark eyes.
Depending on the look one hopes to achieve, colored contacts can add just the right amount of style when it is needed. Natural, or dramatic, colored contacts will allow you to create naturally beautiful eyes from one end of the color spectrum to the other. Important to make note of, no matter what statement or look you are going for, the only type of colored contacts you should wear, are the ones prescribed by your eye doctor. Before you decide colored contacts are right for you, it is important to understand all the facts.
Prescription Colored Contacts
Prescription colored contacts are the only type of colored contacts one should wear. Never wear decorative contact lenses as these types of contacts come from very unreliable sources. Never buy colored contact lenses from a street vendor, salon, novelty store, or any other unreliable source. You should always have a prescription for contact lenses no matter what. Important to make note of, make sure you let your eye doctor know during an eye exam, you are interested in colored contacts. During your eye exam your doctor will make sure, the contact lens fits properly.
Remember, the eyes are one of the most delicate and important parts of the body, so what you put in and on them must be safe!
Colored Contacts for Light Eyes
Colored contacts for light eyes are made of a solid but see through tint. For those with light eyes, enhancement tints are natural looking transparent hues that create depth and dimension. Different from an opaque tint, enhancement tints are meant to enhance the natural color of the eyes. An enhancement lens is 70-80% transparent. They are designed to enhance not change the eye’s natural color. This type of colored contact makes the eye color look more defined. As an example, a blue-eyed person would use them to make their eyes brighter and more defined. For anyone with darker eyes, this type of colored contact would not produce the type of results you are after.

Colored Contacts for Dark Eyes
Colored contacts for dark eyes are known as opaque colored tints. Opaque tints are the best choice for those with darker eyes. An opaque tint is a non-transparent tint that can change the color of the eye completely. Colors such as blue, violet, or green, can really help someone with dark brown eyes stand out from the crowd. An opaque contact lens is contact lens designed with a pigment used in the lens to cover up one’s natural eye color. Opaque lenses come in single color and blended color tints. The idea behind a blended color tint is that it mimics the natural color variations in the iris. For those with darker eyes, you can use an opaque lens to create a natural color or dramatic color it is up to you.
