Freshlook ColorBlends

Freshlook Colorblends color contacts Freshlook Colorblends are probably the most succesful color contacts from Ciba Vision. Colorblends are available in a wide range of colors including the oustanding True Sapphire and Pure Hazel which you can see on the left. Freshlook colorblends are opaque color contacts and are therefore recommended for people with dark eyes. Meanwhile they are also suitable for people with astigmatism.

The real advantage with these color contacts is that they offer you a proper natural look by using a technology which consists in combining three colors that enhance the natural effect on your eye but also creates a subtle depth of your eyes. These contact lenses are soft disposable ones and are monthly but you should replace them after 2 weeks.

Freshlook Colorblends Review

Freshlook Colorblends HoneyIf you are searching for color contacts which will give you the most natural eye color, then Freshlook Colorblends are definitely what you need. Freshlook Colorblends uses Freshlook's advanced color technology which blends 3 colors on a single lens giving an excellent natural color effect. In order to give the most realistic look possible, every color contact of this range has hazel around the pupil and a charcoal outerline.

So the good part with these lenses is that the look they give is really top. They have a wide range of colors available, blue, green, honey, gray, hazel, turquoise, brown and many others including the new True Sapphire which gives a really nice effect.

So overall, from my own experience and what i have read, these color contacts are really top as they are synonym of quality, comfort and top natural color effect. Nevertheless some people have complained that when using them for long periods, your eye becomes quickly dry which is annoying. In that case simply rewet them and it will be fine. In my opinion they are probably the best available if you want to have a natural color effect!

Dark Brown Color Contacts

Acuvue Define Dark BrownYou have light colored eyes such as green or blue and what to purchase colored contacts which will give you dark brown eyes? Well what you must know, is that the amount of color contacts which give you dark brown eyes is unfortunately rather small. Nevertheless we will tell you which ones are available and are the best.

The best available in order to have dark brown eyes are Acuvue Define but thesere are unfortunately exclusive to asian countries. Nevertheless if you search on the net, it should be possible to find them in shops which import them, or directly from asian shops if they offer worldwide delivery. As you can see on the picture on the left they give a very dark brown (close to black) look to your eyes.

Freshlook ColorBlends BrownIf you are unable to find these, then i would recommend buying Freshlook Colorblends in brown. You might say these are not really dark brown, but they are the closest you will get too, and from what i have heard the result is rather good especially for people with green eyes. You can see a picture of them on the left. Hope this will help you.

Acuvue Color Contacts

You probably have already heard of Acuvue, and if you have not, well this article will give you an idea of who they are. Acuvue is one of the leading color contacts brands in the world, if not the leader (rhey are in competition with Freshlook). Being one of the biggest brands in the world, Acuvue has a wide range of products which are suitable for most vision problems.

Acuvue has a wide range of products. They have their leading Acuvue 2 Colours range (also called acuvue 2 colors). These color contacts are extremely thin and comfortable as they are made of water. They have colors for dark eyes or color contact lenses for light eyes. This can be found on their website. You can see on the left a sample of these. I quite like the Sapphire blue and the Jade green...but then all depends on your hair color, skin tan and how you dress. So its up to you!

If you have astigmatism, then you should use their Acuvue Advance range which are in fact toric contact lenses. With these contact lenses, Acuvue uses the latest technologies so that they are the most comfortable possible, and so that they do no pop or fall out of your eye!

All in all, Acuvue is simply a great brand of very high quality offering a large range of products for everyone! A most have!

Want a Free Colored Contacts Trial Pair ?

One question many of you are probably asking yourselves is where you can find a colored contacts trial pair. In fact it is rather easy to have a trial pair, but you will always need to go and see an eye specialist. So where can you get them?

The first solution, if you are lazy, is to gon online on the website of one of the two most well known color contact brands: freshlook and acuvue. On their website if you look around, you will find a "try for free" link. You should click on it, and enter the information required (email, questionnaire, color contact model). Once this is done they will send you (by email most of the time), a certificate for a free trial pair of color contacts, that you should take to your eye care specialist who will then give them to you! Rather simple no?

Another solution to get a colored contacts trial pair is to go directly to your eye doctor's office and ask him for a free trial pair. He will then measure your eyes, in order to give one which is suited to your vision problem and eye size. This is a commercial event, where the doctor as you are his patient gives you some color contact lenses for free in order to try them, and come back and see him!

Color Contact Lenses Astigmatism

If you are reading this article then it is probably because you have the astigmatism vision problem and you are probably wondering which color lenses are adapted for you. In fact it is quite easy as the lenses which correct astigmatism have their own name which is toric color contact lenses.

You may have noticed that there are often different sorts of toric color contacts such as soft toric lenses, but do not worry, if the lense has toric in its name, then it is specialy made for people with astigmatism. In fact the only brand and lense which is for astigmatism and which does not have toric in its name is the Acuvue Advance, which is in fact a toric lens but with another brand custom name.

In this article i wanted to point out something which is specific to toric lenses. Due to the need of your eyes when you have astigmatism, the lenses must not be able to rotate around. The way toric contact lenses are made helps them not to rotate and therefore they do not fall or pop out.

All in all, Iwould recommend using soft toric lenses, as these are the ones which are the most comfortable for your eyes as they are soft. The Acuvue Advance range is good, and many say that they are better than Freshlook's toric lenses. So maybe you should go for them this time!

Colored Contact Lenses for Brown Eyes

In my previous articles i have talked about which color contacts were the best for dark eyes. Today i thought i would be more precise and give recommendations for people with brown eyes, as this is the most common eye color in the world. Many of you have probably in the past already tested colored contact lenses for brown eyes and were probably disappointed as the result was not so good. In the past the lenses gave you either a very small change to your eye color or completely changed it making it really unfortunately unnatural!

But now with the developpment of the technology and science, there are some colored contact lenses for brown eyes which give a very nice result, in fact a lot better than in the past! Nevertheless you must consider that creating a lense which could change a brown eye into sky blue and make it look natural is rather difficult, so you cant expect to have something perfect but it will be a lot better than in the past! As i explained in my previous articles, different types of color contacts exist: enhancement and opaque ones. Unfortunately even though enhancement are the best in my opinion they only work well with light eyes and therefore if you have brown eyes enhancement lenses would look almost invisible or would create a very small tint which could clearly not be considered as changing the color of your eye.

Freshlook True SapphireOpaque are those that you need for brown eyes. These lenses are not transparent (only the middle part is so that you can see through it). But dont worry they are not solid color, they give a very nice effect which reflects quite well the human eye color. Nevertheless not all give a natural effect. The best in my opinion is Freshlook ColorBlends by Ciba Vision. They look very realistic as the lenses are in fact a mix of different shades (as for a normal iris). The best looking one if you like blue is the True Sapphire Model. If you prefere Acuvue, i would go for Acuvue 2 Colors Opaque! Hope this will help you! On the left you can see the Freshlook True Sapphire model and below the Acuvue 2 Colors Opaque!

Party Color Contacts

Yes, it is no longer only film horror actors which can wear excentric color contacts. You can if you desire buy wild and crazy color contacts for your parties such as halloween. The good thing with these types of lenses is that they are really fun, and go perfectly with costumes especially with halloween ones.

Contact lenses for parties and halloween, help you change your true identity and let you become a new person for some fun adventure such as, Halloween, clubbing, or whatever you want. They become with your costume a real gadget to use to disguise yourself. You can see below a sample of such color contacts and the effect they can have on a eye! Awesome!Halloween Color ContactsOne of the main advantages of these types of color contacts, is that they do not all require prescriptions! As they are lenses you will be wearing simply on a particular event, a few times a year, there is no real risk of damaging your eye, so you can use them safely. Simply do not use them the same frequency as normal contact lenses. Most of the time, halloween color contacts are sold with costumes so that you have a complete effect! Have fun!

Color Contacts for Light Eyes

In some of my previous articles i talked about what color contacts were suited for dark eyes! Well this time lets see which ones are suited for light eyes! So if you have light colored eyes it is recommended to use either opaque or enhancer color contact lenses. If you simply want to change your colour then use opaque ones, but on the other hand if you want something a bit more unpredictable then use enhancer ones.

The ones i would especially recommend for light eyes are the Freshlook Dimensions (as can be seen on picture below) which are monthly disposable ones as they add depth to your eyes and make them look larger and prettier.

Freshlook DimensionsOn the other hand if you want to have more sparkling eyes i would recommend Freshlook Radiance or Acuvue 2 Enhances contacts which give a striking bright and sparkling effect to your eyes. The Acuvue (as can be seen below) will give you a more intense effect than the Freshlook one, so you need to see what you prefere!

Acuvue 2 EnhancesAlso be careful when using enhancement color contacts, as depending on the color of your eye it can in some cases make them look even darker. With enhancement ones you need to test and make sure they suit correctly your eyes and the look you want!

Non Prescription Colored Contacts

A lot of people are searching where to buy non prescription colored contacts. So you are probably expecting me to give you a list of website where you can buy them? Well even though this is sometimes possible online, i do not recommend this practice at all!

In fact if you want to buy colored contacts without a prescription well you will in the end need a prescription! This is due to the fact that contact lenses (included colored ones) have more than simply corrective charasteristics. Each eye is different, therefore you need to know the base curve size of your eye and which lense diameter is suitable for your eye! And guess who can tell you this? A specialist, who will give you a prescription!

It occurs that some people buy color lenses online without any prescriptions. This is clearly a bad idea. You should read articles and posts from people having had eye problems due to contact lenses that were not suited to them .... Clearly if you use regularly lenses which are not suited to your eye well you can severely damage it and this for your whole life, even for thos who have never had any vision problems before! If i were you i would not buy non prescription color contacts at all! If you dont have a prescription you can go to Walmart, who have eye specialists who will measure your eye and give you an adapted pack of contact lenses!

What Eyewear should you choose?

In the past few years, eyewear and especially color contacts have become very popular thanks to the development of fashion and technology. This phenomen has happened in particular among young people. In the past contact lenses could only be bought with prescriptions as were normal glasses. Nowadays, it seems that they are becoming increasingly prominent, especially with the development of the wide range of color contact lenses. It is actually more and more frequent to have friends changing regularly of eye color thanks to these lenses. Furthermorethey are being sold with other products such as costumes for example. Halloween costume sets often have color contact lenses included in them in order to increase the drama aspect of the costume.

The second reason why they are becoming very popular is their price, and there has been a drop in prices in the last few years. Some color contacts are cheap but are nevertheless very safe to use. Young poeple with limited budget tend to go for these. Example of such color contact lenses are the disposable ones which can be changed frequently and do not cost a lot. The advantage of such lenses is that it does not matter if you loose them, and it is rather difficult to break them which is more convenient than glasses for young people!

Many companies offer contact lenses and especially online. It is therefore difficult to know what to buy. Beware of cheap unbranded contact lenses that are sold in large quantities. These usualy do not give any documentation or information on whether the lenses have been proved medicaly as safe or not. As a consequence if you do not want to harm your human eyes, do not buy these! Furthermore, for those having vision problems such these type of cheap lenses could damage your eye!

The best solution is to go and see an optician or eye clinic offering eyewear and color contact lenses. At least when seeing them, they will be able to recommend you safe ones which will not harm your eye! For those willing to change the color of their eye, you may look into color contacts to change your look. Yet again ask your optician if the ones you like are safe or not. If you have any eye vision issue, the optician will be able to recommend you those that are the most suited to your eyes!

What are Disposable Color Contacts worth?

In the past color contacts were unbelievable expensive, but this has now changed. The price of them has gone down due to a drop in manufacturing costs. A wide range of disposable color contacts can be found. You can find daily, weekly and monthly lenses. You are probably asking yourselves what are the differences between traditional ones and disposable ones?

Disposable color contact lenses are rather recent in terms of their development and that is why they are becoming more and more popular. Knowing whether lenses are traditional or disposable is not always easy. In order to differentiate them, it is simple, you should simply look at the package in which they are sold. If they are sold in a box then generally they are disposable lenses. On the other hand if they are in a phial and have a per unit price, then they are traditional.

We will now have a look at the advantages of disposal color contacts and why you should buy them. First of all, from a health point of view, they are better for your eyes as they are more comfortable because they are thinner but also because proteins don’t develop as much as with traditional ones. When you use them, you should change them regularly as this is better for the health of your eye. What is good is that they are used on short periods, so if you loose one, well no problem you just buy some new ones.

The main difference between them is that traditional ones are often hand painted such as Illusions by CibaVision. Hand painted color contacts create a more natural look than those that use the digital printing method. The reasons why disposable color contacts are not hand painted is that it is expensive to manufacture but also that it takes a lot of time to do for lenses that are changed on a daily/weekly or monthly basis!

Colored Toric Contact lenses

The first question you will probably ask yourself is what are toric contacts? Well in fact toric contact lenses are lenses which will correct your view if you suffer from astigmatism! Yes you no longer have to wear your old ugly glasses!!

One or their dvantages is that they are made in order to fit precisely your eyes and therefore reduce the blurred vision that you would get when wearing normal contacts. But what is really great today, is that toric contacts offer you the possibility to chose the color of your eye! Yes it does both, it corrects your vision but also allows you to chose a color for your eyes which you think will fit you and enhance how you look!

Colored toric contact lenses are made from various materials but these are the same material as for normal contact lenses. They are available either in soft or rigid gas permeable material. The colors vary from dark blue to light violet and any color in between these two!

So if you feel like having a nice halloween party or other, and want to change the color of eye but also your astigmatic vision then just buy colored toric contacts!

Technology and Colored Contacts

It is like changing the color of you hair... now you change the color of your eye so that it matches with your clothes, hair and style! Another reason for their success is that with the progress of technology their variety available has considerably increased and everyone can now find the right colored contact they need. With the progress of technology, they are becoming more and more sophisticated and therefore comfortable!

Technically some of the innovations and progress that have been made is that color contacts allow now more air to pass through and reach the eye. Therefore health and comfort issues have decreased! Another technological progress is that most contact lenses are mainly made out of water and are therefore a lot more comfortable to wear and prevents health problems such as blood clots, head aches or simply pain!
In regards to the types of products availables, technology has allowed to offer daily color contact lenses but also monthly color contacts!
