If you’re new to the world of colored contact lenses then you may be wondering which types of contact lenses are right for you. With several different
The Duration Decision
It may seem obvious that contact lenses are separated by their duration, but the choice is more important than you may think. Firstly, let’s discuss the aspects of daily wear contact lenses and whether these would be the right fit for you. For many users of colored contacts, the intention of their purchase is to change their eye color for a
On the other side, we have extended wear contact lenses which in our store will last for 90 days or 1 year. These are slightly more expensive but if you’re planning to go to a Cosplay convention over a weekend, want to wear them to any nights out or if you’re planning on changing your eye color on a daily basis, these are cheaper than trying to purchase lots of daily contacts. When you get these contacts, you will also have to get some Contact Lens Solution and should invest in a Contact Lens Case so you can keep your contacts clean. The cleaning isn’t difficult, but you have to remember to do it every time you wear them or if you’ve left them alone for a long time. It’s still a small cost for the experience of
Quality Vision from Contact Lenses
The difference between Prescription and Non-prescription lenses is an obvious one, but there are important things to know about them while ordering. For those who aren’t short-sighted or intend to wear glasses over their colored contacts, the Non-prescription colored contact lenses are the best option. Most of our lenses are Non-prescription so the options are extensive. Whatever situation you want to use these contacts, we will have what you need.
We’ve added a number of Prescription colored contact lenses to our store as we know that you want the option to wear contacts in a different color without compromising on vision. Our selection for these lenses is growing and we intend to have an inclusive set of options
Natural vs. Novelty
For those who want to make an everyday change to their eye color, then it’s likely you’ll want to have a Natural contact lens design that mimics the ordinary pattern of a real eye. While the name may suggest that these lenses are all about blending in, there are some options available that are noticeably different. With colors of contacts that range from Grey to Purple, it is possible to change up your eyes to something a bit more exciting. Over half of the world has brown eyes and the desire for something different can be compelling. The best option for natural contacts is to get an extended wear option for repeated use.
Alternatively, Novelty contact lenses are designed to be strange and super interesting. From spooky colored lenses for Halloween or even the series of Naruto Sharingan Cosplay contacts that have become super popular. These are a mix of intense colors and crazy designs that can make a costume for a Cat, Vampire, Anime Character, Ninja, Demon or just about everything more impressive.
There are two big styles of contact lenses that exist, the first being hard contact lenses. These are made from gas permeable materials called Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA for short). These are the best option for those with difficult eye conditions but because of their rigid surface can be uncomfortable to wear. You will struggle to find any colored contacts that are made with hard materials.
The alternative is the Soft Contact Lenses that we use at Coloured Contacts. These have the scientific name of Polyhyrdoxyethylmethacrylate (or Polyhema). These are the best option for many because they are a hydrogel, meaning that they connect smoothly with the water in the eye. The percentage on a Polyhema contact lens notes how much water is absorbed to create the hydrogel. Our contacts are formed to make sure that your eyes maintain a quality water level without making the material uncomfortable.
So these are the different types of contact lenses available to you.
