cosmetic colour contact lenses Cosmetic color contacts were created to change your natural eye color. Colored contacts are great if you want to change your image or just brighten your look. There are two main types of cosmetic colored contacts:

  • Partially transparent enhancement contact lenses, which make your eyes look brighter, bud don’t change their color as such

  • Opaque color lenses – designed for people with brown eyes, who want to change their eye color completely


Enhancement cosmetic lenses – for light eyes

If you have gray or blue eyes, blue enhancement color contact lenses will make your eyes most beautiful sky blue color. And your eyes will still look natural because enhancement contacts are 80% transparent. However, in brown eyes enhancement lenses will be invisible, they are only suitable for people with light eyes.

Enhancement cosmetic colored lenses have a tint of solid color over the entire lense (including the middle). Since there is no border between the color aria and the clear aria over your pupil (unlike in opaque lenses which are clear in the middle) the lens looks very natural. However, this decreases the amount of light your eye receives, but not by much. Usually people who wear transparent contact lenses don’t report any change in vision.

Best looking enhancement contacts are Freshlook Radiance; Freshlook Dimensions, which also make your eyes, appear larger, Expressions and Acuvue 2 Color Enhancers.
