Non-prescription contacts

Non-prescription contact lenses are just like traditional contacts with the exception of the way that they are used. While prescription contacts help those with vision problems to see more clearly, non-prescription contacts allow you to make changes to your appearance. If you do not have vision problems but would simply like to heighten or change the color of your eyes, these contacts will allow you to do so.

These contacts have become very popular over the past few years. You can now purchase them at a variety of vision and optical stores as well as from many online contact stores. They are available in a wide range of colors and designs as well as prices. Typical shades of non-prescription contacts include blues, browns, black, greens, greys and violets. Other more daring shades include yellows and reds. Designs are also available for those looking for a more creative way to change their looks. You can find many styles and designs including those that look like cat eyes and a variety of other more unique looks. Tints, visibility, opaque and enhancements are also varieties of these contacts that are available without a prescription.

Non-prescription contacts are used regularly in filming today to change the appearance of actors. They help to not only change the color of the eyes but to enhance the shape of the eyes and add a more dramatic look as well.

If you are planning to purchase non-prescription contacts or colored lenses, you should understand the different variations and what each does to change the color and look of your eyes. Opaque colors will simply change the color of your eyes. For instance, if you have green eyes and would prefer blue eyes, you can purchase opaque lenses to make this change. Enhancement color contacts however, add brightness to the eyes and give your eyes a more vibrant look. This is particularly true in those who have light colored eyes.

If you are not sure that you can wear these contacts, you may want to see your eye doctor before you purchase. Although you will not need a prescription in order to purchase the lenses, you should at least get your eyes measured by your eye doctor to ensure that you purchase the proper size. You will need this information in order to purchase to your lenses. You may want to research the prices before you purchase as well. Again, non-prescription contacts are available at a variety of eye care centers and at many online shops.

You can also purchase several different colors or styles so that you can change your look whenever you want. Keep in mind that many stores offer rebates or discounts when you purchase larger amounts of disposable lenses.

Be certain that you purchase contact lens solution and a carrying case for your lenses before you buy the lenses particularly if you are purchasing from an online retailer. You will need the solution in order to insert the lenses into your eyes and the case will help to protect your lenses when you take them out. There are other accessories that you may or may not need to go along with your non-prescription contacts. Take the time to do your research into actually wearing contacts before you purchase to ensure that you will be able to properly insert and retrieve the lenses from your eyes.
