do not buy anything from this company!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have had to give one star as giving no stars was not an option
I started wearing contacts back when I was 15/16, so about 2/3 years ago, and I started off wearing coloured contacts. Wow, did they make me feel sexy! I remember I first got hazel, and people I didn't know whether I was out shopping or just at school kept asking 'is that your natural eye colour cos you got gorgeous eyes' and I kept saying 'thanks but no they're contacts' and people would comment on how much they suited me etc. and I was really flattered indeed. I tried out green and grey too, and they were just amazing, and I'd always get commented on them. I always wore the freshlook colourblends ones and I must say that the colourblends is just an amazing brand. It has about 3 different colour shades on one contact and the thing I like about this is that it makes it seem so natural. I think the trick is picking something that would suit you and not something that would make you look all fake so for example if you have brown coloured eyes and are a brunette there really is no point in picking something like sapphire or turquoise because it would just look downright scary and just weird really. You can get colourblends contacts in monthly disposables and places like specsaves should sell them, or you can also order them online. Whether you're looking to buy natural looking contacts or just a different colour, then colourblends is for you. Several colours are available such as hazel, brown, gray, green, blue etc.
Also the good thing about colourblends is that you can get powered ones or non-powered ones, so if you wear glasses, or clear contacts, then you could still try out powered lenses, with a different colour.
I must say though that I've stuck to clear contacts now as I'm more into looking natural natural. But if I had to choose a brand for coloured contacts again, it would definately be freshlook colourblends.
If you really want to stand out from the crowd these are the things to try! They come in Blue, Green, Hazel, Grey and Violet and cost around £20 depending on where you get them from If you go to any high street opticians and ask for contact lenses you will find they want you to book an eye test (I was told this would cost £40) and then they will prescribe you contact lenses (you have to pay for these on top). I decided that as I can see fine I just wanted to buy lenses, like you see advertised on TV. The easiest way to buy them is online try www.colouredlenses.com or www.eyechange.co.uk I have tried other brands but find these the best, they actually make your eyes look bigger and don't irritate as much as some. The colours are bright and give a different look, I find the green and blue are the most noticeable change, the violet is subtle but unusual and the brown and grey are more natural. When choosing a brand the ones that work best seem to be the ones that mask your eye colour rather than just put a colour over the top. These actually have a few colours mixed in and have a darker piece around the edge so it looks realistic. At first to me the thought of putting something in my eye sounded really gross. Although after a few times I got used to it and now I actually find it easy! It's simple really you just open your eyelids with your fingers and carefully put the lens in with your fingertip. There is writing on the lens so you are sure to get it the right way around and they seem to get into the right position on there own. I find this brand the best for staying in place - some move around a lot and this can make seeing hard. These contact lenses last for 30 days and you must make sure you clean them properly when you take them out. I use Bausch & Lomb Renu MultiPlus as it's easy to use and you can buy it in most local supermarkets and chemists, it's a solution that cleans, rinses, disinfects, lubrica
tes and stores it even comes with a case to store your lenses in. I feel that coloured contact lenses make my face seem less boring and they are definitely a great conversation starter!
I thought about the body piercing and the tattoo but I wanted something that wasn?t permanent that would make me stand out so when I saw an advert in town for Crazy Lenses I new this was what I was looking for?.. *About Crazy Lenses* Almost anyone can wear Crazy Lenses (a few people may have dry eyes and find them in tolerable), you don?t have to already wear contact lenses or glasses to wear Crazy Lenses. If you do wear glasses however you can have Crazy Lenses altered for your sight. Crazy lenses are available in monthly disposables and standard wear. If standard wear lenses are cared for properly they can last anything up to a year and a half. Monthly lenses are available in seven designs: - White - Cat-eye (yellow only) - Blood red (plain red) - Black spiral (set on a white background) - Red spiral (also set on a white background) - Wolf (black with flicks of yellow around the pupil area) - Fire (yellow with red swirl like designs round the outer edges of the lens) The price range for monthly lenses is about £35.00 - £40.00. Standard lenses are available in over 40 designs including the same designs as the monthly ones. I?ll just list a few: - Plain colours i.e. no pattern or design (available in cerise, blue, UV yellow, green, black and white. - Hypnotic (available in three designs; red circles on a yellow background, green circles on a yellow background and black circles on a white background) - Fire (same as monthly ones and also in white and black) - Reptile and Cat-Eye (these are similar designs the only difference is that the reptile lenses have a scaled design in the background. They are available in four colours; cerise, yellow, green and white) - Dart (yellow and black dartboard) - Dollar (two designs; green or yellow both with $ signs on them) - Soccer (football) - Chip (white and black micro chip design) - He
art (pink lens with a heart shape in the centre) - Smiley (yellow and black smiley face) There are just to many to list. If you want to have a look at some of the designs go into a search engine and type in Crazy Lenses and take your pick of sites. The standard lenses range from about £60 upwards. All Crazy Lenses that contain the colour yellow glow up under UV light so if your anything like me and enjoy clubbing these are guaranteed to attract people?s attention! *My personal experience with Crazy Lenses* I bought a pair of red and yellow Fire lenses last September. I wear them every time I go out clubbing with my friends. They are comfortable for me to wear and I can see just as well as I do with out them. It is possible that this may not be the case for everyone but if you go to purchase a pair always get an options opinion on the lenses compatibility with you. They are very simple to look after. I just have an all in one cleansing solution for mine. The solution should be changed every time you remove your lenses from their container/holder. The only problem I?ve found with them is that if you get smoke in your eye they tend to dry out a bit and you can feel them but usually when this happens your eyes start to water slightly. *FAQs* 1. Do they irritate your eyes? Some people they do some people they don?t. I have been alright with them so far though. 2. Can you see properly out of them? As I mentioned early I can see perfectly well with them. All of the lenses have a gap in the middle for your pupil. Then you get the silly FAQs like? 1. Are they your real eyes? Come on u can?t be that drunk 2. Do you bite? Yes hard. That?s just a few I don?t think I?ll bore you with them all. I would definitely recommended these as a non permanent way to stand out. Although they
are a little pricey they create a dramatic look and are guaranteed to grab peoples attention. Joanne :o)
I saw a promotion in Dollond and Aitchison a couple of years ago and thought I'd try a pair of Freshlook coloured contact lenses. At £25 for two pairs, I thought it was worth it even if they were rubbish. Being a contact lense wearer anyway I didn't see that they could be any different from normal lenses. Anyway, the nice optician lady let me try different colours to see which I liked best (always good before handing over any cash). I have naturally blue eyes and have always wanted brown (we always want what we do not have!), but these were not ideal for a dramatic change. My eyes took on an insipid, murky colour that just wasn't attractive. So I tried Emerald and Blue. Both were quite striking and didn't look human - I really wanted something that was more natural and flattering. I was quite disappointed at this stage, but I tried the light blue ones anyway. Sounds a bit daft considering that this is my natural colour, but they did look good. There was a subtle difference in colour that all my friends and family noticed. In fact my eyes were really enhanced without looking as if they belonged to someone else or an extra-terrestrial. However, I found that taking care of them was quite difficult. I'm quite brutal with my lenses and these seemed too flimsy to be cleaned properly. One of mine split after two weeks (they were monthlies) even though I was really careful with them. Another big downside is that I am quite short-sighted and I found that, even though there was a clear area so that the pupil can 'see out', whenever the lense moved about in my eye this clear bit moved and the blue came into my vision. This was really annoying and generally I thought my vision wasn't as good. I may consider trying another brand, but I wouldn't recommend these to people with really bad vision.
I have always hankered after different coloured eyes, since I was about 18. The cost was always the prohibiting factor as coloured lenses were very expensive. However it is now possible to have different coloured eyes everyday of the week! I went to Spec Savers who made me an appointment to see the contact lens specialist, this cost me £25 for the test and assessment. As I already wear glasses and am happy with my 'face furniture' I just wanted coloured lenses, they optician thought this very odd, but was happy to assist. He examined my eyes and then 'tried' a lens in my eye. I have very dark brown eyes, a bit like muddy pools I always think, so thought the violet colour would brighten things up a little! On looking in the mirror I could straight away notice the difference in colour. It wasn't as bright as I had hoped, but the violet really did show, albeit a bit darker than my expectation. The lens is very comfortable after a few minutes of wearing, as I had never tried contact lenses before I was very surprised! It did feel a little 'odd' and I could feel the lens with my eyelid everytime I blinked. This sensation wore off after about 10 minutes though. The lens itself has a 'clear' hole for the pupil, so vision is not impeded by the surrounding 'coloured' iris part of the lens. The lens also has a very small W and J on the coloured part, I find this very handy as I am able to tell if the lens is inside out or not! I find the great thing about coloured lenses is, if you drop one you can easily find it again! I have seen many friends hunting for 'clear' lenses with no joy!I find that I am able to drive and carry out normal daily activities with no problems. These lenses are designed to be worn for a maximum of one month, then new ones will be required. This is to minimise the risk of damage to the eyes from proteins that will build up on the lens, from na
tural process of the eyes. I tend to wear my lens once a week for a couple of hours, so as they come in a pack of 2 for £20 it is quite ecomonical for me. The lenses will be supplied with 2 bottles of solution and lens pots to wash and store your lenses safely.
I have had a number of pairs of crazy lenses now and only buy them to look 'different'. You can get these for as little as £35 now but you do have to have an eye test and contact lens check first. You do not have to be wearing glasses though, you can get them plain!! The lenses are a little uncomforable to wear but it's tolerable. The effect is great though, some people won't look at me when I wear them and some don't stop staring. They last about three months, they are supposed to be monthly disposables but I don't wear them often so they last a bit longer. Because the lenses are quite thick it doesn't matter what colour your eyes are. I have bought several colours, whiteout, wolf (yellow and black), fire (red and yellow) and hypnosis (black & white swirls). All of them have looked great. These lenses do affect your vision, the colour is smaller than your pupil which means you can see the edge of the lens, you do get used to this though. I wouldn't recommend wearing them into a nightclub because the smoke irritates your eyes then they start watering, you make-up runs and you look crap. They are good for wearing in the day though and if you want to look different, these definately work.
Freshlook disposable contact lenses Wow - my first impression was there are just so many colours to chose from . Blue , green , honey , grey , turquiose , violet , green and chesnut brown . Whats also fab is that there is one bunch of colours to make your eyes look really different , my favourite colour is Sapphire blue they'd make anyone'e eyes look totally dreamy , perfect for the evenings and parties !!!! The other bunch of colours are more sutle suitable for daywear and work . The contacts are not just for people who need eye correction so people with ok eyes can wear them purely for a change . The lenses are about 20 pounds for a box of 2 lenses , so are affordable enough to try a new colour each month ( i'm more reluctant to try too many colours so chose a colour I know will look ok and I feel comfortable wearing !!!!! They are avaliable from all good opticians and make a change from wearing glasses all the time , and it makes people notice you more !!!!!
