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!
