Coloured contact lenses are specially formulated lenses that allow the wearer to change their eye colour - this could be for everyday wear or for special occasions. View our complete range of coloured contact lenses here.
It is possible to buy coloured contact lenses for prescription and cosmetic purposes:
- Prescription formats: If you have myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) or astigmatism you can buy prescription lenses that change the appearance of your eye colour (not available from Vision Direct), so that you can wear these for cosmetic purposes as well as for vision defects. It is worth noting that if you have astigmatism it is much harder to find toric coloured lenses, although they are available, this is only in a limited range of prescriptions. We recommend speaking to your optician if you want to find out about toric coloured contact lenses.
- Plano formats: If you do not require prescription lenses but still want to benefit from the cosmetic effects of coloured contact lenses, plano lenses (or power: 0.00) are specially designed for this purpose, featuring no vision correction.
Although coloured contact lenses are often more expensive, many wearers are happy to pay for a totally unique new look.
