The colored contact lenses allow its users to correct their eye anomalies and change the eye color to create a look that is subtle, bold or anywhere in between whether the users want to enhance their everyday look or decorate themselves for a special occasion. Colored contact lenses are available in both prescription and plano forms. Prescription colored contact lenses correct optical anomalies such as myopia (nearsightedness) and hyperopia (farsightedness), while completely changing the user’s eye color if desired.

The cost of colored contact lenses can be significantly more than that of normal contact lenses. Most of the colored contact lenses are designed to relate to the natural look of the iris, which is the colored part of the eye. Since the iris is made of colorful lines and shapes, some of the colored contact lenses feature radially arranged colored lines and shapes and a series of tiny dots to help the lenses look more natural on the eye. Colored contact lenses usually come in three kinds of tints, i.e., visibility tint, enhancement tint and opaque tint.
