If you’re one of the lucky ones with perfect “20/20” vision, you can still try colored contact lenses. Lenses without vision correction are called Plano.
However, you still need a prescription from an eye care professional to get them. Why? Because, even though you may not need vision correction for near sightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, colored contacts from different brands use a wide variety of materials. Some may be better suited to you than others.
More importantly though, your eyes are unique to you. Your eye doctor needs to measure the curve and diameter of your eye to recommend a contact lens that will fit you properly. Fitted properly and professionally, colored contacts feel more comfortable; less itchy or swelling, and low risk of abrasion and tearing. Nobody wants that!
For example, your doctor may recommend that you wear Acuvue 2 Color Opaques, with a base curve of 8.3 and diameter 14 mm. This means that FreshLook Colorblends, which has a base curve of 8.6 and diameter 14.5 mm might not fit properly.
There is a huge variety of colors and styles of colored contact lenses available in Plano prescription if you just want to try something different.
All major brands of color contacts offer 0.00 power lenses. We recommend these best sellers:
- Freshlook Colorblends – for dark and light eyes
- Acuvue 2 Color Opaques – for light and dark eyes
- Acuvue 2 Enhancers – for light eyes, enhances the eye color
