Buying Bright Colored Contacts

I would like to get non prescription bright color contacts. I tried a lot of sites but just can't find the right colors. I have brown eyes.

NO MATTER WHAT! Go to your eye doctor for your contact fitting and get them sized. If you buy straight from someone and they do not fit you, they will scratch your eyes.

I too have dark brown eyes and use colorblends contacts with no strength. I wear the sapphire blue and the violet.

Oh guys...listen. You only have one set of eyes so treat them well. I wear prescription contacts. No color, my eyes are green. I love brown eyes though. Anyway, I have seen people with the colored contacts and some don't match them well with their eye color and it looks so phony. Who would you be kidding? Some just look so artificial. Be yourself and go to a professional eye doc.You'll be glad you did. :o)

Hi,

I am an optician and we sell these colored contacts in our office.

First of all, the contacts designed for brown eyes, even the best ones, do not look natural. I am not saying that in a negative way, take a look at all the things people do to enhance their appearance, that are not natural, such as highlighted hair and makeup. Just because they are not natural, does not mean they are not beautiful or interesting. So, if you are looking for natural, forget colored contacts, but if you are looking for a new look, a fun change, they may be for you.

Keep in mind above all, even though your contact lens is without a prescription, it is still a medical device. A foreign object setting on your eye for hours at a time must be carefully looked at by an eye care professional to ensure the eye health is maintained. This is not a gimmick to get $$. Believe me, the last thing you want to do is end up with an ill fitting contact lens on your eye. Have an optometrist or ophthalmologist check it on you.

In my office (I live in Alaska and our prices are higher than in the lower 48) we would require a full exam, either by us or someone else and it must be 6 months old or less. There is an additional fee for the contact lens portion of the exam.(45-65 dollars). Included in that price would be the class instructing you how to properly insert, remove and care for your contact lenses, and one follow up visit. You can try on all the colors by all the manufactures (in your specific parameters) so you can see which is really YOU. I often send my patients outside with a mirror. for the true effect. Anyhow, good luck, they can be a lot of fun.

Have you seen the""Wild Eyes?" They are popular at Halloween time.

Good luck and I will be glad to assist you with any questions or concerns you might have. Oh, don't forget, your eye exam (not the contact portion) may be covered under insurance. Kelly

I was browsing for contacts and I found this page, I have natural hazel eyes and this is a pic of my eyes in a lot of light, if there is no light they look really brown with only a little green. I was wondering if there is a contact that has no color but adds more light and oxygen to the eye to brighten them out? I would like to have this color in normal light rather then in serious sunlight, any brand or type of contact id really love to find it. Thanks for your time. I appreciate it.
