Below are some tips to help you choose the best colored contact lenses. 

Types of Tints 


Colored lenses come in 3 kinds of tints. These include: 


i. Visibility tints: For visibility tints, a bit of green or blue is added to the lens so as to enhance one’s vision. This added color doesn’t affect the color of the eyes since it (the color) is light. 


ii. Opaque color tints: These are solely designed for people with brown eyes. They are available in a variety of colors so as to suit the eyes’ natural hue. 


iii. Enhancement tints: These are meant to preserve the eyes’ original hue, but instead brighten the appearance of the eyes. They are ideal for individuals with a lighter eye color.

Colored Lenses for People with Blue Eyes 
If you are bored of your looks and are seeking for some way to enhance them, try the opaque colored tints. Choose the green colored lenses if you are incredibly fair & have blond hair, in addition to having blue eyes. If you have a slight tan, you may either choose honey, hazel or brown. 

Colored Lenses for People with Dark Eyes 
The 3-vibrant colors for dark eyes include gray, brilliant blue and gemstone green. Light blue tint may also work well for dark brown eyes. 

Tinted Lenses for People with Astigmatism 
There are also colored contact lenses that are specifically designed for people who have this eye problem. However, they should always first seek for a prescription before buying and wearing the lenses as doing so might drastically alter their vision. These colored contacts are also designed to suit the individual’s eye color and skin tone. 

The most interesting thing about color lenses is that you can change them whenever you want to. Go to an optician near you and update your appearance with cool colored lenses.
