Part 1 Obtaining Colored Contacts

    Determine what kind of contact lens to get. This will depend on whether or not you have pre-existing problems with your vision. There are two different kinds of colored contacts: Prescription and Plano.
    • Prescription contact lenses are used on people who are near-sighted, far-sighted, or have an astigmatism. Prescription colored lenses change the color of your eye while also correcting your vision.[1] Color lenses will not be able to treat astigmatism, however, so your vision might be blurry if you have this condition.
    • Plano contact lenses are purely for cosmetic purposes. These contact lenses do not alter your vision in any way.[2]

    Pick a color. You can either choose an everyday color that mimics the look of a natural eye, or spice up your halloween costume with patterned lenses.
    • Everyday lenses come in a variety of colors, including blue, green, hazel, brown, and purple.
    • Costume contact lenses come in all sorts of crazy colors and patterns like spirals, checkers, at-eyes, zebra, Xs, white-out, and even tie-dye!

    Make an appointment with your optometrist. Both prescription and plano contact lenses are classified as medical devices by the FDA, and you will need to be given a prescription.[3]

    Ask your optometrist if colored contacts are right for you. Remember that not everybody can safely wear contacts, as it depends on the shape and health of your eye.
    • Your optometrist will give you proper instructions on how to insert and take care of your lenses to avoid damaging them and harming your eyes.

Part 2 Proper Use and Care

    Keep your lenses clean. Always wash and dry your hands before handling your contact lenses, and keep your fingernails short to avoid scratching your eye when inserting them.[4]

    Insert your contact lenses before applying makeup.[5] Similarly, you should remove the lenses before washing off your makeup. This will avoid getting any makeup on your lenses.

    Don't share your contact lenses with others. Doing so can spread infections or particles from one eye to the other.[6]

    Only keep your contacts in for as long as your eye-care professional has recommended.[8] Overuse can cause damage to the eye over time.

    Make sure you don't insert your lenses inside-out. Doing so won't damage your eyes, but may be uncomfortable.[9] To make sure you are inserting it the right way, hold the contact lens on your finger and view it from the side to see which way it folds.
    • If the top edge of the lens flares out then it is inside out.

    Be sure to take out your lenses before you go to sleep. Sleeping with contact lenses in your eye may cause irritation and dryness in the morning.

    Remove the lenses if you experience pain or irritation. If you experience eye redness, stinging, burning, or pain, this is a sign that something is wrong. Remove your lenses and stop using your contacts until you have talked to your optometrist.

    It is important to use eye drops that are safe to use with contact lenses. Typically, if the bottle is labeled "resetting drops" they will be safe to use with contacts. Also, preservative-free artificial tears are safe to use with contact lenses.

Tips

  • If you have dark brown eyes and are planning on getting green contacts it will give you darker green ring around your iris.
  • Be sure to practice inserting and removing the lenses with your optometrist before doing it at home.
  • If your eyes are a dark brown, choose a honey or hazel color; this will enhance the lighter undertones in your eyes.
  • For a natural look, choose a color that is somewhat close to your natural eye color. Remember that if you are going much lighter (from dark brown to light blue, for example), it will be apparent to others that you are wearing lenses.
  • When choosing makeup contacts (colored) choose a comfortable fit, as they can be uncomfortable.
  • Always keep your contact lenses and eyes moisturised with a few drops of solution every 3-5 hours and Please don't use water to clean your contacts as it may cause infection.

Warnings

  • Since your pupil size constantly changes depending on the lighting, contact lenses might inhibit your vision at night when your pupil is larger than the space in your contact lenses.
  • Contact lenses may shift slightly when you blink, making it much more obvious that you are wearing colored lenses, and temporarily blocking your vision.
  • Don't wear contact lenses unless you have been given a prescription. Your optometrist will determine whether you can safely wear contacts based on the shape and size of your eye.
  • Visit your eye doctor immediately if you experience sudden loss of vision, persistent blurred vision, eye pain, infection, swelling, or other irritation.[10]
  • Contact lenses might make your eyes more sensitive to light, so consider wearing sunglasses or a hat/visor to protect your eyes from the sun.[11]
