Non Prescription Colored Contacts
Contact lenses these days are about more than simply correcting vision. Non prescription colored contacts offer anyone the ability to completely revamp their look with a couple flecks of plastic. Whether you want to wear blue contacts on brown eyes, brown contacts on blue eyes, make your eyes look bigger with black circle contact lenses, or even take on a vampire’s red eye tinge with special effect contacts, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. The number of people wearing cosmetic contact lenses is exploding every year, and so are the choices. Choosing the right colors for your eyes can be overwhelming at times, but remember at the end of the day it’s all just good fun.
Colored Contacts For Dark Eyes
Not everybody wants a dramatic change to their eye color. One of the common usages of colored contacts is to warm up the tone of dark brown eyes. Some feel that wearing lighter brown colored contacts with dark eyes gives them a more warm, inviting look. This type of effect is perfect if you’re seeking color contacts for dark eyes that offer a subtle adjustment to your look, rather than a dramatic transformation.
Black Contact Lenses On Brown Eyes
On the other side of the coin, many women with dark eyes – particularly in Asia – have taken to the trend of darkening and enlarging the appearance of their iris with large, dark black circle lenses. These black circle contact lenses darken the eye into a bold black, while enhancing the size of the eye, giving the wearer a cute, innocent look.
Blue Contacts on Brown Eyes
Not everyone is a fan of subtlety. Blue contact lenses on brown eyes is a popular choice amongst those looking for something more dramatic and eye-catching (no pun intended). This can transform a brunette into a blonde if used alongside hair dye, or worn alone they simply give the wearer an exotic, alluring look.
Green Contact Lenses
There are some colors that give the wearer an exotic look, no matter what color their eyes were originally. The wide range of green contacts on the market give you the option of subtly enhancing your gaze, or completely altering your look. Green contacts with a light enhancement tint can give your brown or blue eyes a greenish tinge, while green opaque lenses can give your eyes a bright, vibrant green sure to draw just the right amount of attention.
Grey Contact Lenses
Grey contacts have a similar effect as green contact lenses, but where the green effect offers an exotic look with a tinge of warmth, grey contacts give your eyes a similar exotic look, but carrying with it a tinge of steely coldness you simply don’t get with any other color.
Crazy Colored Contacts
With colored contacts you’re not limited to realistic eye colors. While you may want to stick with blue, brown, green, or grey due to a preference for subtlety or a need to maintain professional appearances, others may want crazy colored contacts that really scream out. They want a look that will turn heads and express a wilder side of their personality.
If this sounds like your style, here are some color suggestions that can stand out and make a statement – all on their own.
Yellow Contact Lenses
If you don’t enjoy being the center of attention, then yellow contacts aren’t for you. While yellow contact lenses are popular Halloween contact lenses due to the monster-like effect they can provide, Yellow contacts are also a bold everyday choice for those who dress to match. Bright hair dye, yellow contacts, and an outfit that has people doing double takes is a “can’t miss” combination for bold personalities.
Purple Contact Lenses
Purple is another dazzling color that makes a statement. Not as bold or dramatic as yellow, purple contacts can still “pop” while retaining a soft, pretty look. Unlike yellow contact lenses, there’s still room for a certain level of subtlety with purple contacts. Go with a light enhancement tinge for a soft, pretty effect, or go with a high contrast lens to ooze wild sex appeal.
Pink Contact Lenses
No discussion of crazy colored contacts can be complete without a mention of pink contacts. If yellow and purple contacts stand out in a bold, “look at me or else” way, pink says “you don’t have to look at me, but you’ll wanna”. Pink contact lenses are great for the girly girl who wants to try a unique, playful new look.
Safety Considerations When You Buy Color Contacts Without Prescription
While colored contact lenses can look great and are a lot of fun, it’s important to keep in mind that they’re not toys, and they need to be purchased from a reputable seller and manufacturer.
When you order regular prescription contact lenses, you’re usually ordering from a dispenser with a license to dispense medical devices. However, since some colored contacts are worn only for cosmetic purposes, most jurisdictions – including the United States – do not regulate their sale. This means that when it comes to ordering color contacts without prescription, you may end up purchasing from a retailer or manufacturer who pays little care to contact lens fit & safety.
Even though you can legally purchase non prescription color contacts, it’s important to remember that even if you have perfect vision, contact lenses are sometimes regulated as medical devices for a good reason – if you damage your eyes, there’s no way to repair that damage. Though wearing non prescription contact lenses is generally safe, there is always a small chance that an ill-fitted contact lens may cause damage to your eyes.
We encourage you to keep safety in mind when making your color contact lens purchase, and we highly recommend that you don’t simply go for the cheapest of the cheap colored contacts you can find, but that you buy colored contacts from a reputable brand, or purchase them from a reputable store that dispenses prescription contact lenses as well. If you have never worn contact lenses before, get a checkup with your optometrist or ophthalmologist to be safe. They will likely give you the green light and encourage you to enjoy your color contacts and your new look – but a fresh look should never come at the expense of your eyesight.
