Coloured contact lenses are a must-have fashion accessory and growing in popularity across the world. Numerous brands are available on the market in an array of shades and replacement cycles but the hesitation for most is still whether they can cover brown eyes. Well, we are here to help demystify brown coloured contact lenses on brown eyes.
Thanks to advancements in contact lens technology and colour opacity, many coloured contacts can cover natural brown eyes seamlessly, transforming them into alluring shades of greens, blues, grays and hazels. As the dominant eye colour in the world, many brown eyed people look to be able to experiment with and switch up their natural eye colourand it’s never been easier and with more choice than now with coloured contact lenses.
Coloured contact lenses work similarly to regular contact lenses. The difference is that they have a coloured film on the area that covers the iris, transforming the eye colour. The centre is left clear for that the pupil can see out. When putting the lens in, it will sit with your natural eye, fully transforming the iris colour so people won’t even know you’re wearing lenses. The main difference between coloured contact lenses are replacement cycles (how long you can wear the lenses), colours (different brands offer different colours) and limbal ring (essentially the outer ring of the iris and whether it is defined or not).
