Denver Contact Lenses: It’s Time to Reconsider Colored Contact Lenses

Colored contact lenses aren’t just for movie sets and Halloween anymore. More and more people are drawn to color contacts as a way to enhance their own eye color and even to shift eye color completely. In the early days of colored contact lenses, the lens quality was inferior to what was available in non-colored lenses and most optometrists were reluctant to prescribe colored lenses. Thanks to the latest lens technology, you no longer have to sacrifice comfort and quality to get the color enhancement you want. Whether you seek tint so you won’t lose contact as you handle them each day or want to completely alter your eye color, Vision Care Specialists can work with you to find the Denver contact lenses that work best for you.

3 Kinds of Tints

Visibility Tints: This color treatment is primarily to make it easier to handle and detect contacts. They are not intended to change eye color.

Enhancement: People with light-colored eyes can use contacts to enhance their natural eye color to create vibrant blues and deeper greens and grays. Unfortunately, they aren’t effective for people who already have dark-colored eyes.

Opaque: If you want to totally change your natural eye color, then opaque contact lenses are for you! This would also be the solution for people who already have dark-colored irises.

Pick the Right Color
Just like when you pick the perfect eyeglass frames to suit you, the color of your hair and eyes will help you select the right color contact lenses. It’s also important to consider if you want to make a daring fashion statement or seek a more natural enhancement. No matter which type you choose, they are available with or without a vision-correcting prescription.

Take Care
Colored contact lenses are safe for your eyes, just be sure you follow your doctor’s recommendations for the proper care and maintenance of the contact lenses just as you would with traditional contact lenses. If you want to play around with a really bold look, you might want to consider daily disposable contact lenses. Keep in mind there may be times that the colored portion of a colored contact lens will shift over the iris of your eye when you blink or when the light shifts and your iris changes size. This may create a less-than-natural appearance and can slightly affect your vision.
