Whether you want to create a new look for always or just for a special occasion, colored contacts are a fun, fantastic and eye-catching way to embellish your appearance. Read on if you’re interested in learning more, as well as finding out where to buy nonprescription colored contacts and prescription types. (At Yesnick Vision Center, of course!)
Can everyone wear colored contacts?
Basically, colored contacts follow the same rules as normal untinted contacts. If you already wear contacts and have no problem with them, you should be fully competent to wear any of the colored contacts in our Las Vegas collection.
What vision prescriptions work with colored contacts?
In general, there is a colored contact for any vision condition, ranging from 20/20 (zero power) to -8 for nearsightedness to +6 for farsightedness. Color enhancing contacts that are worn entirely for cosmetic purposes (with no lens power) are called plano lenses. Colored contact lenses are also available for astigmatism, although these versions may be costlier. So whether you have a more complex condition or absolutely no need for vision correction, you can still change the color of your eyes.
Do I need an eye exam for nonprescription color contacts?
Yes. Even people with perfect eyesight still need a prescription for colored contact lenses. All types of contacts fall into the category of a medical device that must fit your eyes properly. If you don’t visit your optometrist for an eye exam and just scan retail websites for the best deal to buy colored contacts online, you will be putting your vision and eye health at risk.
A large selection of brands is available, with different designs, colors and tints. Our Las Vegas eye doctor will check your eyes thoroughly to determine the best brand of color contacts for your condition. We carry a full inventory, so once you have a current prescription – there’s no need to wonder where to buy colored contact lenses! Visit Yesnick Vision Center to see our collection anytime.
Do all color contacts work the same way?
Almost all colored contact lenses in our Las Vegas collection are designed to look natural. The part of the contact lens that covers your iris is composed of colored dots, lines and shapes, similar to the way your eye appears. However, there are three different kinds of tints:
- Visibility tint: with no effect on eye color, this tint is only there to help you find the lens better during insertion and removal.
- Enhancement tint: solid, but see-through; this tint is a bit darker than a visibility tint and will act as a color enhancing contact. The hue shows best on people with light-colored eyes who desire to deepen and intensify their eye color. Enhancement tints tend to define the edges of your iris.
- Opaque tint: these color contacts change your eye color totally, even for people with dark eyes. All theatrical and costume contact lenses for novelty use also fall into this category.
Will I feel color contacts in my eyes?
In terms of wearing comfort, you may find that colored lenses are slightly less comfortable than your normal lenses. That’s because they are generally thicker. The plus is that thicker lenses can be easier to insert and remove.

To find the perfect match, we will consider your skin tone and hair tone.
