Contact lenses are the perfect alternative for people who for some reason do not want to wear glasses and be used in the case of such vision disorders as astigmatism, myopia or hyperopia. Contact lenses, which are curved plastic lenses, are put directly on the cornea of the eye. All types of contact lenses are now available on the market including disposable, hard, soft or color based. Contact lenses are the number one option for extremely active individuals and sportsmen, because of their convenience compared to eyeglasses. The use of contact lenses must go together with maximum care and hygiene and need to be stored in special solution when not in use to prevent any kind of eye infection. The purchase of contact lenses cannot be made without a prior consultation. Additionally, you also need to go for an eye and contact lenses check up each year.
Colored based contact lenses actually have quite a long history. Hard contact lenses were popular in the World War II, while currently the soft ones are the most common choice. Contact lenses, which are now available in various different colors, can also improve various eye problems.
In the case of colored contact lenses, which actually modify the natural color of your eye, the lenses make use of several different colored dots, which basically copies the pattern of the iris.
The color changing effect of the color contacts is achieved with the use of three types of technologies: opaque color tints, enhancement tints and visibility tints.
Opaque tints are being used in the case of opaque colored contact lenses to perfectly cover your iris. The opaque tints prevent light from passing through making your natural eye color completely invisible. These lenses fully change the color of your eyes, while providing completely natural look. With these lenses you can have any eye color, as there are no limits.
The enhancement tint does not completely change the color of your eyes, as it only highlights or improves it. It is mainly used by people with light colored eyes. The natural color of the eye is enhanced, making it a lot more visible and striking. With the use of these contact lenses you can easily achieve a slight but efficient change in the color of your eyes.
Generally, visibility tints are light green or blue cast that is introduced into the contact lenses. These will not change the color of your eyes, but makes the lenses more visible for the user. Thus, it is a lot easier to put them on and greatly reduces the chances of losing them. As they are slightly tinted, they are more visible on most surfaces and also in the contact lens case. Clear contact lenses are hard to find once you dropped them by accident. In such cases a slightly colored lens is much easier to be found.
Well, this is your chance to have a perfect eye makeover with colored based contact lenses! You can easily change your look by simply choosing another color for your eyes along with a charming mind-set.
