What are Tinted Contact Lenses?

Tinted contact lenses are contact lenses that have had a dye incorporated into the lens material. This dye gives the lens a particular hue or tint, depending on the color of the dye used. Some tinted contact lenses can be used to subtly alter the natural color of the eye, while others can be used to completely “change” the color of the eye.To get more news about colored contacts, you can visit beauon.com official website.

There are three types of tinted contact lenses: visibility tinted contact lens, color enhancement contact lenses, and opaque contact lenses. Visibility Tinted Contact Lenses are lightly tinted (i.e., they contain only a small-amount of dye). Wearing them will not alter the natural color of your eyes. The tint allows you to quickly find contact lenses in your lens case or if you accidentally drop your lenses while inserting or removing them.To get more news about colored contacts prescription, you can visit beauon.com official website.

Color Enhancement Contact Lenses interact with your natural eye color, enhancing the color of the iris (the colored part of the eye). These lenses can actually intensify your natural eye color. For example, color enhancement contact lenses can add an aqua hue to your blue eyes or a bluish cast to you light green eyes. They will not, however, make your brown eyes blue. Opaque Contact Lenses ” change” the natural color of the eye. For example, opaque contact lenses allow people with dark eyes to have a completely different eye color (e.g., these lenses can change your brown eyes to blue). The term “opaque” is used because the tinted portion of these lenses does not allow light to pass through. (In contrast, color enhancement lenses allow light to pass through the tinted portion of the lens.) Opaque contact lenses are also referred to as “eye color changing” contact lenses.
Yes. All dyes used for tinting contact lenses have been extensively tested for tissue compatibility and have been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They have also been proven to be safe over many years of wear by thousands of contact lens patients.To get more news about colored contacts non prescription, you can visit beauon.com official website.

Typically, yes. It must be noted, however, that all colors “weather” or fade over time. For instance, the drapes over your windows at home are not as bright as the day you first purchased them. Over time light has faded the color. This same phenomenon occurs with tinted contact lenses. The good news is that, most likely, you will have replaced your lenses long before lens fading becomes noticeable.

Yes. Some tinted contact lenses can reduce glare or light sensitivity by reducing the amount of light entering the eye. Some contact lenses can be provided with an ultraviolet (UV) filter. However, these lenses are not a replacement for ultraviolet (UV) filtering sunglasses. You should discuss this option with your eye care practitioner. It is important to note that none of the currently available contact lenses with UV filters are approved to take the place of full UV-blocking sunglasses. Also remember that contact lenses with UV filters may only protect the cornea and retina. They do not protect the conjunctiva, the eyelids and other outer portions of the eye.

Often referred to as cosmetic contact lenses or decorative contact lenses, these are zero-power contact lenses that are tinted with a color placed onto the contact lens to enhance or change natural eye color. With the new technology available today, simple tinting is being replaced with spectacular effects, e.g., cat eyes, wild eyes, athletic team logos, etc. Wearers that utilize plano cosmetic lenses do so as a fashion statement rather than as a vision correction need, although cosmetic lenses are also available with corrective power.

This depends on the type of lens with which you are fit. For instance, some tinted lenses should not be heat disinfected, since doing so may cause them to fade. Follow your eye care practitioner’s prescribed lens care instructions. Do not change any aspect of your lens care regimen without first consulting your eye care practitioner. While contact lenses can enhance appearance and provide excellent vision, they require care and must be treated with respect. The golden rule in contact lens care is that any time a contact lens is removed from the eye it must be cleaned and disinfected before being reinserted. This is true for all contact lenses, including tinted contact lenses.
