Types of Non-prescription Colored Contact Lenses

Colored Contact lenses come in two types: the medical and the non-medical. While some are medically prescribed for people that are visually defected, others are non-prescribed and can be worn by anybody for cosmetic reasons. Medically prescribed contact lenses have limits in types and use than non-prescribed ones. That's very logical, for the fact that you can't just get any contact lense without medical analysis if you happen to be someone in need of a prescription contact lens. However, by using non-prescription contact lenses, you have little to worry about.
There are various reasons why people use colored contact lenses, of which medical prescription belongs to. But irrespective of the difference in individual reasons, there is one general and dominant reason: to enhance beauty. As little as contact lenses are, if you choose the right type and color for yourself, it can change how you look in a very interesting way.
For the fact that non-prescription lenses are easy to get, people often think they should get a color they consider to look good on someone else, without properly analyzing if that same type is what they need, or if the color is what they should go for. It is good to understand these, as there are three types of colored contact lenses:
Types of Contact Lenses

Non-prescription colored contact lenses are otherwise known as Plano colored contact. Unlike prescription color contact lenses, they do not correct vision problems because they have no lense power and are basically worn just to enhance or change the color of the eyes.

Colored lenses come in three different types of tint, which are...
1. Visibility Tints
In most cases, visibility tint is a light blue or light green tint that is added to a lens for the main purpose of making you see the lens better, whenever you are inserting the contact or taking it out. And since these tints are purposely made light, they do not affect the natural color of your eyes.
2. Color Enhancement Contact Lenses
These contact lenses make the eyes brighter because it increases the contrast of the iris (the colored part of the eye) in relation to the white background. It makes the eyes appear more bluish, greenish, or in short, it deepens the natural color of the eyes to make it bright and clear. It's important to note that the purpose is not to change the color of the eyes.
Color enhancement contact lenses are mostly for people who have light-colored eyes and are only willing to make the natural color of their eyes brighter.
3. Opaque Contact Lenses
Unlike the first two tints, opaque contact lenses outrightly change the color of your eyes. If your eyes are naturally blue and you would like to change it to green, yellow, or any available color, opaque contact lenses are meant for that. The original color of your eyes becomes hidden under the shade of the color of the opaque lens you insert. They are called opaque because they do not allow light to pass through them as the other two do.
