Non Prescription Contacts

Non prescription contacts are cool
If you are looking to change your eye color without going through a lot of hassle and worries, non prescription contacts are available to people who want to change their eye color.
Lenses that require no vision correction are called Plano lenses. So even if you get non prescription contacts, you still need to see an eye care professional for a proper fit up.
Opaque colored lenses are currently the most popular of non prescription contacts available. They can turn the bluest eyes into an even darker and mysterious blue tone. The lenses have a clear center surrounded by a ring of color. People with lighter eyes are advises to stick to this form of enhancement lens which accentuates the color of the eye with subtle hues and tones.
For the more wild at heart, there’s a wide variety of novelty non prescription contacts that are flooding the market now. There are different designs you can get like “flame”, “alien”, and “cat’s eye” to name just a few. The rule of thumb is, if you can think of it they probably have one. There’s probably even one that says “Harley Davidson” or “MOM”.
Eye makeovers are not the soul purpose of non prescription contacts. Many hospitals, clinics use the lens as a bandage of sorts after cataract surgery. Sportsmen and spectators are also becoming a group of users of the non prescription contacts that have special light and color filters to see better. The contacts allow both sportsmen and spectators to see the balls, targets or markers better by filtering out light and enhancing certain colors of the visual spectrum.
Depending upon your schedule and your lifestyle will determine what type of non prescription contacts you will use. If you are a compulsive person that can’t be tied down to just one color, then disposable lenses may be the way to go for you. If you love your new look and satisfied for a while, then daily wear are probably the way to go which are good up to a year. And if you want to spend a little more money you can go with the extended wear which can be worn continuously for 30 days.
Convenience is now king for the consumer, and non prescription contacts are no different. You can now order contact lenses by mail or order them over the internet. This is available for some of the opaque colors, but may not be an option for some of the novelty lenses.
