A Fresh Look For Your Eyes

Are you after a fresh look that'll make you feel great? There are lots of colour contact lenses that allow you to slightly enhance or radically alter your eye color. There are so many these lenses on the market these days, so you'll be sure to find what you're looking for. It doesn't matter if your eyes are blue, brown, green or hazel, colour contacts are able to alter your eye colour, to provide a new, beautiful and most of all, natural look. Colour contacts are sold in monthly, bi-monthly or daily disposable alternatives.

When you choose a colour for yourself, start by thinking about the natural colour of your eyes, hair and skin, and the sort of change you'd like to see. If you're not sure what you're after, and want to explore different colour options and see for yourself how these lenses will modify your look, your eye care professional can help you out when you try on all the colours available. If you like, you can even get a ''rainbow pack'' if you can't settle on one colour.

It's crucial that you buy contact lenses from a trained and certified contact lens fitter only. If you're wondering why, it's because not all contact lenses are right for you, even if they don't have a prescription. A lens that doesn't have a prescription can still scratch your eye and do damage; specifically causing a corneal abrasion, or even a corneal ulcer if the rubbing is bad enough. It's of vital importance that you keep in mind that contact lenses are considered a medical device. Make sure to avoid colour contact lens suppliers carrying non-certified contacts because they may be coloured with dyes that are toxic and hazardous. Whether coloured lenses are used as prescription lenses to improve your eyesight or to simply enhance your regular colour, they need to be fitted and prescribed by your eye care professional. Make sure to come by and discover your colour contact lens options.
