Summer is a Great Time to Try Colored Contacts!
Perhaps you’ve already gotten a few highlights put into your hair, you’ll get a bit of a sun-kissed glow after that afternoon at the pool, now why not try a new eye look? Have you ever thought of trying out a brand new pair of colored contact lenses? The summer season is a great time to try out this kind of brand new look.
Colored contact lenses do an amazing job of effortlessly changing your eye’s original color. Unlike lenses from as recent as a decade ago, the new colored lenses are so natural looking that no one will be able to tell you are wearing them. In fact, you’ll probably cause them to question whether or not your eyes have been that color all along.
I have brown eyes, but the blue and green colored opaque lenses do a fantastic job of changing my look. Summer is a great time to try a variety of colors until you find the ones that work best for you. I used to enjoy wearing violet contact lenses, just for fun!
If you aren’t ready to change your color completely, but would like a little boost to your natural color, try Expressions contact lenses from CooperVision. All of their colors are subtle and will make for a realistic eye color change – not a drastic and dramatic one.
If you have darker eyes or are going for a more impactful look, Freshlook Dimensions are great lenses that are designed to make the eye color change obvious without announcing that you are wearing colored contact lenses. You can choose from Caribbean Blue, Pacific Blue or Sea Green – which will all make you want to take a trip to the beach while you’re at it!
Do I Need a Prescription?
Colored contacts do require a prescription, even if you don’t require vision correction. If you have special vision needs, colored contact lenses also come in toric for astigmatism. If you prefer to change your lenses every day, you can even get colored lenses in daily disposables.
Visit your closest America’s Best optometrist to be properly fitted for the lenses. Then you’ll have a prescription that allows you to reorder your contacts after your supply is gone. You can get a refill of the same color or try out a new one if you want to keep experimenting!
