Coloured contact lenses are constantly growing in popularity. A recently conducted survey has showed that UK residents seem to prefer blue ones.
This is in line with the popular believe that people with blue eyes are attractive, polite, happy and kind as well as able to deal with difficult situations calmly.
According to contact lens expert Brendan O’Brien, changing one’s natural eye colour is simpler than ever before. Coloured contact lenses are worn even by those who do not need any vision correction and just want to enhance their image (by, for instance, adding an air of mystery to it) with the possibility of switching back at any time.
The most popular brands of coloured contact lenses are Freshlook Colorblends (CIBA Vision) and ColourVue (MaxVue), which are offered in a wide variety of versions, including ‘crazy’ ones. Thanks to the use of the newest contact lens technologies, they are as comfortable and safe as standard silicone hydrogel and hydrogel contacts.
