Colored contacts are used to change the color of your eyes. To obtain color
contact lenses you must have a prescription as these are still considered
While you can get colored contacts in Plano or no visual correction you will
still need the contact exam so that they can be fitted properly to your eye.
Colored contacts come in four types. These are:
Visibility tint. These contacts have a light blue or green tint added just to
help you see the contact when putting them on your eye and on removing them.
Colored tints. These are the tints that are deeper in color and actually will
change the color of your eyes. Some of the colors available to you are blue,
violet, gray, green and hazel.
Enhancement tints. These tints are a more solid tint that is darker than the
visibility tint and does change eye color. These tints are made to enhance the
natural colors of your eyes not to change the color completely.
Light filtering tints. These tints are designed for sportsmen in that they
enhance only certain colors of baseballs, golf balls and tennis balls so that
they can be seen better.
If you are interested in having colored contacts be sure to talk to our
opticians and doctors.
