There's something particularly striking about smoky, grey eyes. Perhaps it's their rarity, with only about 3% of the world's population having this distinctive hue. With grey contact lenses, you can join these fortunate few and find out how grey eyes can transform your look.
What are grey contact lenses?
Grey contact lenses are coloured contacts with a tint used to alter the appearance of your natural eye colour. As a fairly bright shade, they work best with lighter coloured eyes, but lenses with strong tints can still be used to change darker eyes.
What vision problems do grey contact lenses correct?
Grey contact lenses able to treat short-sightedness and long-sightedness are very common, with several of the top manufacturers producing high quality lenses. This means you can expect a high level of comfort and clear vision, as well as a distinctive new shade for your iris.
It's also possible to get your grey contacts without any vision correction added, meaning you can experiment with a new look even if you don't have any trouble with your eyesight.
Why choose grey contact lenses?
If you're looking for a subtle, yet eye-catching way to change your everyday style, grey contact lenses are a great idea. Because they are such a rarity, even the subtlest change can really add a little extra something to your look.
They're also a great choice for fancy dress. If you're trying to recreate the looks of your favourite characters from film and fiction, you can use grey contact lenses as a perfect finishing touch for your outfit. They're available in daily form so if you're only using them for special occasions you can simply throw them away and wear a fresh pair when you need them.
Advice on choosing grey contact lenses
If you've never worn contact lenses before, it's a good idea to get a fitting from an optician. They‘ll give you a prescription that you can then use to pick the right lenses for yourself online.
With grey contact lenses, it's important to remember that your eye colour can affect how much of a change the lenses will make. Darker eyes will need stronger tints to make a significant transformation, whereas lighter shades can be enhanced easily.
