Many of us are well versed with makeovers that incorporate wardrobe and hair changes, but few make the bold move to change the color of their eyes. This can, in fact, create a renewed image. For many individuals choosing this option, a visit to the optometrist is a prerequisite to selecting the ideal color lenses. Typically, there are two types of colored lenses available for use: prescription lenses and plano lenses. Prescription lenses, just as the name suggests, are lenses that are provided to correct eyesight problems, while at the same time altering the color of one’s eyes.
Plano lenses on the other hand, are used purely for aesthetic purposes and not eye defect correction. These colored lenses have become increasingly popular in recent times with many more individuals looking for unique ways to redefine their style. The wide array of colors means that clients have at their disposal, the choice of creating a new image, whether subtle or bold. What’s more, the availability of tinted color lenses means that you can have much more fun with your new image. The three distinct tints available include the opaque tint, the enhancement tint and the visibility tint.
For a more dramatic transformation, one could settle for the theatrical colored lenses which are categorized under the opaque tint. These lenses create a special effect that allows one to transform into just about anything. Think aliens, vampires, goths just to name a few. With many more movie stars wearing these lenses, the ability to re-invent one’s style is not out of reach. In choosing the right color lenses, a client will need to factor in the color of their skin as well as the natural appearance of their eyes. The ultimate determinant, however, is the look that one wants to achieve. Thinking of revamping your style with lenses? Colored lenses are the way to go.
