What Color Contacts Should I Get?

People who are interested in changing the color of their eyes have a number of different options to choose from. From iris implants and color change surgery, to makeup methods and laser surgery, there are a variety of avenues one can take to giving their eyes the look they desire.

But by far the simplest and most convenient way to alter your eye color is through the use of colored contact lenses. In opting for prescription colored lenses, you can avoid the associated risks of eye surgery, which can involve both structural eye trauma and/or problems with vision.

Thus, there’s really only one question left to consider: what color are you going to choose? A number of different factors should go into this important decision.

After all, your eyes are the windows to the soul – so what color will your windows be?

Factors to Consider When Choosing Colored Contact Lenses

  • Skin Tone: Take a long look at your skin in the mirror. Do you have yellow or golden undertones, also known as warm skin tones? If so, the lens color that will complement you best will likely include hues of light brown and green. By contrast, the bluish undertones that characterize cool skin tones will typically go best with lenses that have violet or icy blue shades to them. In this way, your skin tones can be a very helpful indicator of which eye color is right for you.  

  • Hair Color: Eye color plays off of hair color in a very significant way, affecting the overall visual impression a person gets from looking at your face. For this reason, it’s rather important to choose an iris color that doesn’t clash with your hair color.
  • Wardrobe: No consideration of different lens colors would be complete without a peak into your closet, to get a sense for the colors you tend to wear and what you feel you look best in. Ideally, you want the color of your eyes to complement your clothing style. So if you see a plethora of blues and greens in your closet, perhaps that can guide you in your choice of colored contact lenses.

Be Sure to Verify With Your Eye Doctor

Regardless of which particular color you’re considering for your colored contact lenses, be sure to check in with your eye doctor; even cosmetic lenses require a prescription.

At the end of the day, your contact lenses are visual aids that have a crucial influence over your eye health and quality of life, and you want to make sure they’re providing the most possible optic assistance.
