The world over, people of all ages are discovering the wonder of colored contact lens. Since they became popular about a generation ago, colored lenses have gone through a variety of improvements and sophistication. From lenses that simply changed and enhanced the color of the eye, customers can now find lenses that make subtle changes in the pattern of the iris, the colored part of the eye.
For years, models taking part in photo shoots had been using non-prescription colored lens to enhance eye color and to blend cosmetically with the overall styling. Over time, opticians developed prescription lenses, soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses, with color enhancers that fulfilled the requests of eye patients. Colored contacts should be fitted by professionals and worn with the same care that non-coloured lens require.
In addition to natural eye colors, that is, blue, brown, green and gray, customers can find non-prescription lenses to accompany Halloween and other fancy dress costumes, cat’s eyes, snakes and others. These lenses should be chosen with the greatest care and not worn for more than the recommended length of time.
