How Do The Colored Eye Contacts Work

Colored eye contacts often provoke questions on how exactly can people actually still see through them. The simple answer is that the pupil remains uncovered; it is the iris that these lenses imitate, albeit in a more enhanced form with a simple colored pigment, meaning that vision is not in any way affected.

With this in mind, it is easier to understand how some of the incredible animal inspired lenses, that are often on show around Halloween, allow their wearers to see clearly, when they appear to be completely masking their actual eye. Similarly strange patterns, or strikingly vivid colors, are basically just an extension of their wearers elaborate and creative outfits.

It is worth bearing in mind that the lighter the natural eye color, the greater the effect with any change, as darker eyes could still show through, whilst the paler eye virtually vanishes. These inspiring lenses really do, literally, look the part.
