How Do Colored Contact Lenses Work?

By Steve Cogger

The ability to change your eye color simply by

putting on a contact lens is becoming more popular

every day. Many people like them for fun and never

really care how colored contact lenses work. If

you are a little more inquisitive, read on and I

will tell you exactly how colored contact lenses


The concept of colored contact lenses is to cover

the iris with a new color. In general, neat

colored contact lenses come in two varieties;

opaque colors and enhancement tints. Both designs

work well depending on the iris color they are

covering. One amazing feature of colored lenses is

that they never look exactly the same on one

person as they do on another.

Opaque lenses are intended to change an eye’s

color entirely. Opaque lenses can be used to

change a green eye blue or brown eye green. They

usually have a clear pupil opening in the center

of the lens and a heavy color over the iris area.

Depending on the style of lens and the color

chosen, texture and tint of color will vary. For

example, an Acuvue 2 opaque blue is very different

from a Freshlook blue.

Color enhancer contact lenses are used to boost an

existing eye color or slightly alter its tint.

Enhancers have a light tint which will vary from

covering the entire lens, to simply covering the

outer edge of the iris. A sea green enhancer put

on top of a green eye will give a bright green and

very natural effect. That same lens put on a brown

eye will probably have no effect to the original

eye color.

A new concept in eye color enhancement is the

equinox lens. This lens simply has a black ring

around the outside of the iris. This simple

feature adds a mesmerizing effect to anyone’s

existing eye color and usually looks completely


Colored lenses are designed to be a fun accessory.

Change your eye color based on your mood, outfit,

makeup, or plans. Regardless of how much fun you

are having with them, remember they need to be fit

to your eyes and proper care must be taken. Follow

your eye care provider’s advice as to which lenses

will work for you and how to care for them
