It can seem like everywhere you turn these days there are ways to change your appearance. If you’re unhappy with your hair, dye it and get hair extensions. If you’re unhappy with your body, join a fitness club. If you’re unhappy with the shape and size of your nose, consider a rhinoplasty. And, even if you’re unhappy with your eye color, you can get colored contacts. If you have always wanted a different eye color but thought you were stuck with yours for forever, you are wrong. Read on to learn more about the art of colored contacts.
- Not Just for Prescription Users
The great thing about colored contacts is that you can get them both in prescription strength and without any sort of prescription at all. That way there is no discrimination between who can wear colored contacts and who cannot. Just make sure to consult with your eye doctor before you order contact lenses in order to ensure they’re the right strength for you.
- Eye Colors
The one tricky thing about choosing colored contacts is that depending on the natural color of your eyes, your colored contacts may look different. For instance, if you have almost black natural eyes but are wanting an icey blue looking eye color, it might have a little bit of a dark undertone or quality. Whereas if you naturally have light colored eyes, you likely won’t have a problem choosing a darker colored contact lens.
- Not Permanent
The great thing about colored contacts is that you can change your mind and mood from one day to the other— leaving you with virtually no restrictions. If you feel like having blue eyes one day and brown eyes the next, it’s your prerogative. Just make sure that when you are wearing and switching out your contact lenses that you are following the correct care and protocol: you’re cleaning them in a contact solution and touching them with clean hands.
Colored contacts are a unique and fun way to change your eye color from day to night. To learn more about colored contacts and to pick the right kind for you, contact our office today!
