Color Contact Lenses


Colored contact lenses come in four kinds: visibility tints, enhancement tints, opaque color tints and light-filtering tints.
Many of these colored contact lenses are available in plano form (meaning they don't provide visual correction), as well as in designs for people who have astigmatism, who need bifocal correction, or who want a disposable or frequent replacement contact lens.
A visibility tint is usually a light blue or green tint added to a lens, just to help you see it better during insertion and removal, or if you drop it. Since it's a very light tint, it does not affect your eye color.
An enhancement tint is a solid but translucent (see-through) tint that is a little darker than a visibility tint. An enhancement tint does change your eye color. As the name implies, it's meant to enhance the existing color of your eyes. These types of tints are usually best for people who have light colored eyes and want to make their eye color more intense.
Color tints are deeper, opaque tints that can change your eye color completely. Usually they are made of patterns of solid colors. If you have dark eyes, you'll need this type of color contact lens to change your eye color. Color contacts come in a wide variety of colors, including hazel, green, blue, violet, amethyst and gray.
