Cosmetic Contact Lens

Color Contact Lenses should go with the color of your eyes and skin!

If you are looking for color contact lenses for your eyes, make sure you get the best ones. For this, you need to know a few things before you actually purchase these lenses.

Lately, the market is flooded with different types of color contact lenses. Generally there are two types of contact lenses available in the market: disposable and traditional. Both of them have their merits and demerits. Disposable ones are thinner that make them healthier for the eyes and if you change the lenses more frequently, you are less prone to any bacterial infection. Secondly, disposable color contact lenses are advised if the person has to wear them more than eight hours in a day.

The traditional color contact lenses are the ones that are supposed to be replaced after every year or so. These are hand painted as compared to the disposable ones which are digitally printed. These hand-painted contact lenses are much more expensive and that is why, do not come in the disposable option. These hand painted ones such as Durasoft 2, include a number of subtle details along with a variety of colors. This also helps in stimulating a great depth which gives a natural appearance to the eyes of the user.

Now first of all you need to look into what type of eyes you have – dark eyes or light eyes. There are different color contact lenses for dark eyes and light eyes. The dark eyes are presentable only with opaque contact lenses. So, if you happen to have green, blue or brown eyes you should not use enhancement color contact lenses.

The best names available in the market are Freshlook Colorblends, Acuvue 2 Colors Opaque, Durasoft 2 and Durasoft 3 Opaques, and Illusionsetc. There is a large variety of contact lenses in different colors and you can get disposable as well as traditional ones as per your need.

However, if your eyes are light, then you can wear either opaque lenses or the enhancement color lenses. But if you just want to change your color, go for the opaque ones. The recommended color contact lenses for light eyes are Freshlook Dimensions, Freshlook Radiance, Durasoft 2 for light eyes, and Illusions Soft Blue and Soft Green. Again, you can find both disposable and traditional ones.

The best way is to consult a good optician and take his suggestions while purchasing a color contact lens.
