What are brown contact lenses?
Brown contact lenses will change the colour of your iris to brown, or enhance the colour of your eyes if they are already brown.
Brown colour contact lenses are available in both prescription and non-prescription options. You can wear brown contact lenses whether you are long-sighted or short-sighted. As with normal prescription lenses, you should get a contact lens eye test from your optician, and make sure you know what your prescription is before ordering your brown contact lenses, if you have a refractive error. You’re then free to purchase your lenses from wherever you wish.
Why should I choose brown contact lenses?
As brown is such a common eye colour, brown contact lenses are stocked by every brand, and each brand has their own unique take on the shade, giving you plenty of choice and variation. As a common eye colour, it will suit every skin tone and hair shade. The versatility of brown contact lenses makes it a popular choice if you’re looking to change your eye colour, particularly if you’ve never tried colour contacts before and want a noticeable but natural change in appearance.
Will brown contact lenses suit me?
Brown eyes (usually quite dark) are the most common eye colour and will suit all skin tones and hair colours. Those that have lighter eyes can enjoy a dark and alluring appearance, whilst those that already have brown eyes will enjoy a subtle enhancement to their natural eye colour with brown contact lenses.
Most contact lens manufacturers make coloured lenses that have a wearing cycle of one month. We advise purchasing a contact lens case and multi-purpose contact lens solution such as comfi All-in-one Solution to store your brown contact lenses.
