Colored contact lenses are just like ordinary lenses but with a color or tint, or even a design, incorporated within the lens.
This type of contact lens has become very popular. Not only are they available in plano form for people who do not have any vision problems, they are now available in prescription format for people who already wear glasses or traditional contact lenses.
If you do need colored contact lenses to correct your vision you will find lenses available for most prescriptions. Prescription and non-prescription lenses are available in a wide variety of colors and tints, making contacts as much a fashion accessory as a medical device. You could have a different color every day, if you wanted, or a different pair to match whatever you’re wearing.
But don’t forget, even plano (clear) colored lenses are effectively medical devices and are in contact with your eyes. For this reason it’s important not to share them with anyone else and to observe strict cleanliness when handling them. It’s also very advisable to get your eyes checked before you start wearing contact lenses. Whilst most people are able to wear soft lenses without much difficulty, some people just don’t get on with them. An optician will also be able to measure your eyes so that you can get Astigmatism colored contacts which fit your eyes.
It’s good news for people with special contact lens needs. Colored lenses are available in bifocals or to correct astigmatism.
Colored contact lenses are available in a variety of formats from standard, where you keep the same pair for an extended period of time, disposable, which might last a few months, to daily disposable where you wear once and throw away.
The new must-have fashion accessory is without doubt the colored contact lens. Wear them to make a statement, to match your mood or your dress, or simply because you fancy a change of appearance for the day.
