Contact LensContact Lens

The crystalline lens is a transparent, biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea, helps to refract light to be focused on the retina. The lens, by changing shape, functions to change the focal distance of the eye so that it can focus on objects at various distances, thus allowing a sharp real image of the object of interest to be formed on the retina. This adjustment of the lens is known as accommodation. It is similar to the focusing of a photographic camera via movement of its lenses.

The lens is part of the anterior segment of the eye. Anterior to the lens is the iris, which regulates the amount of light entering into the eye. It is important to note that the size and shape can change due to accommodation and because the lens continues to grow throughout a person’s lifetime.

 

Colored LensesColored Contact Lenses
Colored contact lenses come in three kinds of tints: visibility tints, enhancement tints and opaque color tints.
Many of these colored contact lenses are available in plano form, as well as in designs for people who have astigmatism, need bifocal contacts or want a disposable contact lens.

A visibility tint is usually a light blue or green tint added to a lens, just to help you see it better during insertion and removal, or if you drop it. Since it's a very light tint, it does not affect your eye color.

An enhancement tint is a solid but translucent (see-through) tint that is a little darker than a visibility tint. An enhancement tint does change your eye color. As the name implies, it's meant to enhance the existing color of your eyes. These types of tints are usually best for people who have light colored eyes and want to make their eye color more intense.

Color tints are deeper, opaque tints that can change your eye color completely. Usually they are made of patterns of solid colors. If you have dark eyes, you'll need this type of color contact lens to change your eye color. Color contacts with opaque tints come in a wide variety of colors, including hazel, green, blue, violet, amethyst and gray.
