What Are Colored Contacts?

Colored contacts are contact lenses that are specially designed to allow you to temporarily change your natural eye color. Some people wear colored contacts daily, while others only wear them for special occasions. It is possible to get colored contacts with a prescription, which can help with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and small amounts of astigmatism. However, some prescriptions may not be available in colored contact options. You can also simply opt for the ones without prescription if you’re just looking for a color change. It’s also important to note that colored contact lenses are more expensive than traditional ones.

Types of Colored Contacts

There are various types of colored contact lenses and most are used to look like the iris without changing its color. There are three main types of tints available for colored contacts. These options include lenses with an opaque tint, enhancement tint, and visibility tint. Each of these is designed to change the natural color of your eye, but at varying amounts. If you are finding it hard to decide on which shade would be best for you, Dr. Weil can always assist you and discuss with you which option would suit you best.

Selecting the Right Colored Contacts

Once you are ready to wear colored contacts, you’ll have to decide what your ultimate goal is. Whether you want the lenses to look more natural or contrast your features, Dr. Weil or our staff can help you determine a final decision. However, sometimes people choose to match their contacts to their hair color or skin tone, as they will greatly complement each other.
