What are grey contact lenses?
Grey contact lenses are the most popular choice of colour contact lenses, topping all other colours. Grey contact lenses will change the iris of your eye to a sharp steel or deep platinum look, depending on which brand you choose.
As always, you should ensure that you have an up-to-date prescription from your optician if you have a refractive error. We sell all our grey contact lenses in both prescription and non-prescription options, whether you are long-sighted or short-sighted.
Will grey contact lenses suit me?
Grey contact lenses offer a high versatile eye colour, hence their incredible popularity. They will complement all skin tones and hair colours, although they stand out predominantly well on those with dark shaded/black hair.
FreshLook Colorblends make use of ‘3-in-1’ colour technology, combining the natural colour of your eye with the central colour of the lens. This creates a seamless colour transition, ensuring a natural finish whilst wearing your grey contact lenses. These are available in both a standard ‘grey’ contact lens and a much lighter ‘sterling grey’ shade, as are Air Optix Colors contacts. As the only silicone hydrogel colour contact lens available, they offer a much longer wearing time due to a higher level of moisture retention. This makes them perfect for those who suffer from dry eye and still want to wear grey contact lenses.
If you’re seeking a grey contact lens with a more vibrant colour appearance, you can opt for FreshLook Colors, which offer a smoky shade of ‘misty grey’ for an intense colour change. Equally captivating are SofLens Natural Colors, lenses that carry a deep shade of ‘platinum’ for a richer and more intense colour change.
Expressions Colors (Singles) are one of the most vibrant choices of grey colour contact lenses and are perfect for a more eccentric colour change.
Why should I choose grey contact lenses?
Grey contact lenses make a strong style statement, without being too overbearing on your overall look. While not a common natural eye colour, grey is versatile enough to suit all skin tones and eye colours. Grey contact lenses add a unique touch of character to your eyes, making them stand out and making your eyes the centrepiece of your face.
Grey is also one of only four colour contacts available as a daily lens in the FreshLook One Day lens line. If you prefer to wear daily lenses and dispose of them at the end of the day, you may want to opt for these contacts.
When buying monthly grey contact lenses, we recommend storing them in a multi-purpose contact lens solution such as comfi All-in-one Solution.
