Freshlook Color Contact Lens
Freshlook color contact lens come in different series of disposable cosmetic lenses: Colors, Colorblends, Radiance, Dimensions, and the new One-Day line, which gives a whole new meaning to the word “disposable.”
Colors is the original line of colored contact lenses, featuring a special dot matrix feature that was, quite revolutionary when it was first introduced. At the time, colored lenses of the olden days were a smeared block of color across the lens and looked very fake. Freshlook Colors’ dot matrix system let some of your natural color show, enough to look more natural, but not enough to be noticeable.
Freshlook then improved on the naturalness of their lenses by introducing Colorblends, which layered three different colors to further duplicate the complicated textures of your irises. Aside from the main color that dominates the lens, a slightly softer complimentary color surrounds the hole saved for your pupil and a darker color lines the outer borders of the lens. The effect is much more subtle than the Colors series, and people will mistake the lenses for your real eye color.
Colors come in blue, sapphire blue, misty gray, violet, green and hazel. Colorblends has a more diverse palette, with gray, green, amethyst, blue, brown, pure hazel and honey. The honey, gray, green and blue colors of the Colorblends series are also available in Toric lenses, for individuals with astigmatism.
If you wish to only enhance your appearance, instead of changing the color of your eyes entirely, you could go with Freshlook’s Radiance or Dimensions. Dimensions is great for light colored eyes, adding depth and a shimmer to your eyes with colors such as Sea Green, Caribbean Aqua and Pacific Blue. Radiance, on the other hand, doesn’t change the color of your eyes, but manages to really make them sparkle brighter, thanks to the intense starburst configuration in the lenses. Colors include Moonlight for blue eyes, Eden for green eyes, and Sunrise and Autumn for brown eyes.
You can also wear colored contact lenses even if you have no problems with your eyesight. However, you can’t just quickly buy a pair over the counter, your eye doctor will want to examine and measure your eyes first, to make sure that your new contact lenses fit you properly. Your contact lens prescription will not just contain a grade for your eyes, or rather, no grade, but also details such as base curve and eye diameter.
While efforts have been made to improve Freshlook colored contacts and make them as natural-looking as possible, some unsatisfied customers find the layered colors of the Colorblends series rather fake looking, especially under certain lighting. Others find that the dot matrix system only helps your eyes look natural if your natural color blends well with the colored contacts you chose, which doesn’t really make for much diversity. Most of these customers feel especially appalled that they actually bought a box of unflattering contact lenses.
Still, other customers love the many colors that are on offer and that there are contact lenses that enhance your natural color, as with Dimensions and Radiance. And Freshlook has found a solution to being able to try as many colors as you can, by introducing Freshlook One Day, the new daily disposable lenses available in Colorblends colors pure hazel, green, gray and blue.
