A Pair of Color Lenses for Every Occasion
Modern living puts a host of demands on all of us. No two days are the same, and neither should the colour of your lenses be.
Every morning you put on fresh underwear and your choice of the days lens colour should be no different.
Those who wear lenses will be more than familiar with the hugely popular Ocean Blue and Emerald Green colours which took the market by storm, and for many are still a must have, but think how your individuality and style would benefit each and every day if you had the full colour scale of lenses available to add to your wardrobe.
There is little doubt that Korean brands offering “circle lens” design such as the hugely popular range from Geo are far more beneficial to the consumer than those found in France’s most common brand; Freshlook.
While this brand is available in the majority of opticians and supermarkets throughout the country, many observers put this down to shrewd marketing and effective publicity which is coupled with unscrupulous retailers placing profit above customer needs. The end result is that the most popular French brand is certainly not the most beneficial for wearers.
The Freshlook ‘smoke and mirrors’ marketing approach in terms of their colour blend range, and suggestions of a vast choice which include shades of blue, green, brown and grey is put firmly into perspective when you learn that the Korean Lens colour choice is far more extensive.
This is thanks to the safe and effective laser colouring technology used during manufacture. Such a process allows the production of an infinite colour range.
Two Types of Lens
The two distinct types of Lens available may be common knowledge to many, but it is important for wearers to select the type best suited to their needs:
Daily – This offering will very quickly become part of your dressing routine each morning. Coordinate your lens colour to match your attire or occasion. Once you return home these lenses can be removed and disposed of.
Monthly – Once again these lens will become a natural part of your morning routine, but when taken off in the evening you place them in a cleansing solution overnight. Your lenses are then ready to be worn as normal the following day.
Specific eye conditions
If you have been diagnosed as Myopic or Hyperopic there are special lenses for your condition. They will enhance your eyesight as prescribed, and although there will be a premium in terms of cost, the benefits offered still give excellent value for money.
Eye colour and Lens colour
It is important to understand that your natural eye colour will affect the lens colour chosen. This means that a person with blue eyes and one with brown eyes wearing the same lens tint will display a different eye colour.
That being said, a variety of brands market a specific ‘dark eye’ range to ensure optimum effect regardless of eye colour.
Advantages of wearing coloured lenses
Rest assured there are many. Here are just three for you to consider:
Regardless of whether your eyesight needs attention or not, a change in eye colour is something many people desire. Coloured lenses allow you to realise this change in a stylish and beneficial way. Feeling better about your eye colour means you will feel better about yourself.
Freedom from Spectacles
While spectacles are an excellent aid to improving your vision they do have their drawbacks. Inclement weather such as rain and fog, or being in a dusty environment are examples that will immediately be acknowledged by those who wear them. Such issues will impair your vision and cause frustration.
Hunt the Spectacles
It is a game those who wear glasses would rather not play, but the reality is the vast majority of those who wear spectacles spend unnecessary and frustrating time searching for their mislaid glasses.
While both examples above may only be classed as an inconvenience there is one benefit that cannot be overlooked:
Lenses offer improved vision. This is because they are positioned closer to the eye, acuity is maximised, and a comfort that veteran spectacle wearers have long since forgotten will be returned.
It is extremely important when discussing any subject that a balanced view is given. This article has no intention of offering you a complete ‘rose-tinted glasses’ view of coloured lenses.
Here are three common concerns people voice when discussing the use of coloured lenses, and advice explaining how such concerns can be addressed:
This is down to an understandable fear of touching the eye. While such a concern should not be dismissed, the reality is that by washing your hands thoroughly beforehand, and taking due care when carrying out lens maintenance such a fear will be negated.
There is a concern that colour seepage from lenses may enter the eyes. It is important to understand that this concern should NOT be associated with Korean circle contact lenses.
This is because these circle lenses are given their colouring in a process that employs laser technology. Such technology ingrains the lens colour into the actual lens. This type of ingrained colouring means there is no danger whatsoever of colour seeping from the lens into your eyes.
The final concern we will mention is also the most common amongst those who have yet to make the switch from spectacles, or those who are novice lens wearers.
The belief is that lenses have a tendency to dislodge and fall out of the eye, particularly if the wearer is outdoors in breezy weather conditions.
While such apprehension is understandable because it falls within the unknown, anyone with such concerns should take action to allay these worries as soon as possible.
The solution is to have a chat with your optician relating to lens dislodgement. Their answers will address your concerns in a knowledgeable and professional manner and put your mind at ease.
When considering the potential disadvantages of a switch from spectacles to coloured lenses a balanced argument is essential. During these considerations it will quickly become apparent that any concerns you have will be nullified as long as you choose circle lenses, and follow the well-established contact lens usage procedures.
The use of Cosmetics for Facial Make-up
This is a very important requirement for many and the recommendations are well stated.
You should ensure your coloured lenses are fitted correctly before applying Make-Up. It goes without saying that care should be taken when applying cosmetics around the eye area, and you should ensure cosmetics do not enter the eye.
There are popular ranges of make-up which specifically target lens wearers and these should be considered. For any lens wearers who prefer qualified make-up professionals to apply cosmetics for them there are many clinics and salons offering such services.
While some may consider this an extravagance, others will argue that relaxing while a professional completes their task is a pampering session which should be enjoyed on a regular basis.
Stand Out from the Crowd
Such enjoyment can be extended for any extrovert lens wearers who like to stand out from the crowd, or for those attending special events such as Fancy Dress and Halloween parties or charity fund raising occasions.

Only One Concern!
Those wishing to make a big impression on a daily basis, or at that special event will have only one concern: which of the extensive lens range on offer to decide upon!
One thing is for certain; by following coloured lens wearers in the know and opting for the superior brands Korean suppliers such as Geo and Vassen offer, you will distinguish yourself from others, your self-confidence and that all important ‘feel good factor’ will rocket, and the topping on your social cake will be that as events unfold you will see things very, very clearly!
