Colored Contact Lens Choices

Dec 22, 2007
Many people wear contact lenses to change the way they look, and making the decision to change from eyeglasses to contact lenses probably took a long time to reach. The first encounter that a person has with contact lens colors is when they receive their first pair from the optometrist that completed the eye exam. The eye specialist chose the colors for those contact lenses, but other colored contact lens choices will be left up to the contact lens wearer in the future.

The type of contact lens that can be worn will depend on the results of the eye exam. An eye care specialist will fully explain the procedures for inserting the lenses in each eye and the care that will be needed to keep the contact lenses sanitized and ready for wear. The contact lens wearer will have certain choices to make at this time, because they can choose to enhance the color of the eyes they were born with, or change the color altogether by selecting a colored contact lens from the eye care specialist's inventory.

Making the selection might be difficult for beginners because the choices are endless. The eye care specialist could say that the prescription is for bifocal contact lenses, or that the wearer must wear gas permeable contact lenses only. These contact lenses will need to be custom ordered to meet the special needs of the wearer and additional costs are incurred when some additional requirements must be met. The color choices in these styles could be very limited and if the prescription will allow a change, then the wearer can always consider other contact lens styles.

Some contact lenses require special perimeters to be met which will drive up the cost for contact lenses. When special orders are placed through the internet, most eye care companies will require that the contact lens customer fax a copy of the prescription to the facility to ensure that the order is delivered exactly as prescribed by a qualified optometrist. There is always room to add special notes and request colored lenses in a specific shade but at times this will not be possible and clear contact lens will be sent in a few days.

Some colored contact lenses will enhance the color of the eye, and other choices can be made to add a new radiance. There are color choices to be made that will turn the color of the eye into a mystical opaque color, and other contact lens brands will simply accent the color of the eye while leaving the lens portion that reaches the white portion of the eye with a clear film that makes the color selection unnoticeable to the naked eye.

People can change the color dimensions of their eyes to reflect the color of aqua found in the Caribbean or they can ensure that their eye color is the color of the Pacific in green or blue. A person can also dabble with contact lenses in colors of hazel or violet or they can go all out and explore the subtle differences that are available in contact lens colors by experimenting with lens colors of amethyst, grey, honey, true sapphire, turquoise, pure hazel, or a novelty lens that can be worn for spooky occasions such as Halloween.
