Coloured Contact Lenses Guide

Do you want to change up your everyday look or to stand out amongst the crowd?
Coloured contact lenses offer you the option of enhancing your natural eye colour, or creating a dramatic look easily for any occasion.

Are coloured contacts safe?
Your eyes’ health and safety are important. A contact lens fitting by your optometrist is necessary to help you find an option that suits your eyes and preserves your eye health. You need to maintain proper lens care and follow the instructions provided by your optometrist. It’s safe to wear coloured contacts.
Discuss with your optometrist to decide which brand will guarantee maximum comfort and eye safety.

Before and after with coloured contact lenses
Coloured contact lenses are designed to blend with your natural eye colour. Consequently, the effect given by the coloured contact lenses may vary depending on the natural colour of your iris.

Which colour should I choose?
Many different colours are available for coloured lenses. Having a fitting for coloured contacts with your optometrist usually includes the opportunity to trial different colours of lenses to find the one that looks great on you.
1. Contacts for light eyes:
Enhancement tints are usually best with lighter natural eye colours.
2. Contacts for dark eyes:
In general, the darker your eyes are, the darker and/or more opaque a coloured lens you’ll want to select. A contact lens made for lighter eye colours (blue or green) isn’t going to show up as much on a darker eye.

Do I need a prescription to wear coloured contact lenses?
All coloured contact lenses, including non-correcting (plano cosmetic) lenses, are medical devices and require a valid contacts prescription clearly shows the parameters, brand and colour specification.

Please note:
If you experience pain, discomfort, redness, watering eyes or anything else that makes you concerned, take the lenses out and keep them out. If symptoms persist with the lenses out and you require eye care, contact your optometrist.
