Simply choose your preferred colour and enter your power on the product page.
Can you get tinted contact lenses?
Some contact lenses are tinted slightly to allow the user to see the lens more clearly when inserting or taking it out. These tints are not designed for colour enhancement to the eye. The tint is not noticeable on the eye when the lens is worn.
How do Coloured contacts work?
Corrective coloured contact lenses have a transparent circle in the middle, this is the part you see through. The outer edge of the lens is tinted with a pigment to mimic the colour patterns of an iris, allowing the lens to blend seamlessly with your natural eye colour.
There are two main types of vision corrective coloured contact lenses. There are enhancement tints, which offer a subtle amount of colour to the eye, Enhancement tints are best suited to lighter coloured eyes such as blue and green. This type of lens will not show much of a difference in colour to darker eyes. The other kind of coloured contact lenses are opaque lenses.
Wearing prescription coloured contact lenses on Halloween
Seasonal holidays and parties are the perfect time to change your style with coloured contact lenses. Halloween is a particularly popular time to wear coloured contact lenses, and you can enjoy clear vision and a fashionable change to your eye colour at the same time. Choose a bright colour to stand out and make a statement, or more subdued colour for your everyday look.
Prescription coloured contact lenses for dark eyes
Opaque lenses have a deeper pigment added and so work much better over darker eyes. This type of lens will completely change the colour of the eye. This can be a natural or a dramatic change depending on the colour chosen, as well as the skin tone and hair colour of the wearer.
Some of the coloured contact lenses that work for dark eyes in our range include FreshLook Colorblends. The shades in this range go from natural colours such as brown, honey and True Sapphire, to more striking hues like Gemstone Green, Sterling Grey and Amethyst. For more information on choosing the right prescription coloured contact lens for dark eyes, please visit our Eye Care Hub.
How long do Coloured contacts last?
This will depend on what type of coloured lens you have and how sensitive your eyes are. A daily prescription coloured contact such as comfi Colors 1 Day or the FreshLook One Day can be worn for a day and then must be thrown away. Daily disposable prescription coloured lenses are the most convenient option as they don’t require a cleaning routine.
Monthly lenses, like Air Optix Colors or FreshLook Colors, can be worn every day for up to a month before being thrown away. At the end of each day of wear, the lenses must be cleaned and stored in solution at night.
Can you sleep with colored contacts in?
You cannot sleep in coloured contacts overnight and there are no coloured contact lenses currently on the market that are approved for extended wear. If prescribed by your eye doctor, you may wear contact lenses approved for extended wear.
However, even if you have been prescribed extended wear lenses, it’s best to take your lenses out at night if you can. When worn overnight, the contact lens acts as a physical barrier. This stops oxygen from reaching the eye and increasing your chances of developing an eye infection.
