The primary purpose of Contact Lenses is to improve your eyesight without having to subject you to the discomfort of wearing spectacles or eyeglasses. However, many people use contact lenses for other purposes as well.
The proliferation of cosmetic contact lenses could be attributed to Hollywood, where special contact lenses were fitted on villains to make them look more malevolent than normal. Because of this, people now use contact lenses to enhance or even change the colours of their eyes.
In response to the growing need of consumers for coloured lenses, Johnson and Johnson, released Acuvue 2 Colours, a line of coloured contact lenses. Acuvue 2 Colours come in two (2) variants: Enhancers and Opaques. Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers are ideal for people with very light eye colours. The lenses come in three hues: Ocean Blue, Emerald Green and Aquamarine and brighten pale coloured irises without affecting your eyesight.
Despite having a different coloured hue, Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers are like your regular corrective lenses. The shape is still spherical and can still aid people suffering from myopia (near / short sightedness) and hyperopia (far / long sightedness). However, an additional layer of colour has been embedded into the lens filament. This extra layer does not rest on your cornea and has been designed to blend well with the natural colour of your eyes thus giving your irises a more vibrant and refreshing appeal.
Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers are extended wear lenses, meaning you can wear them for weeks at a time. If you are the type who sleeps with lenses on, the maximum time you can wear Acuvue 2 lenses is 7 days. Those who remove the lenses before they sleep and soak the lenses in disinfectants over night can use the lenses for an additional 7 days before these can be disposed of. Like all Acuvue products, Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers are very comfortable to use.
With Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers you can improve your eyesight AND your appearance all at one time! In addition, you also provide your eyes with protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun as all Acuvue products, including the Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers have been designed to provide you with maximum UV protection. Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers should, however, not be used as replacements for sunglasses.
Acuvue 2 Colour Enhancers can be purchased from your local optical shop at a very affordable cost. Just make sure that when you buy your lenses, you have already consulted with a doctor and that he has written you a prescription. Despite being cosmetic lenses that bring out the sparkle in your eyes, remember that the main function of Acuvue lenses, coloured or not, is to correct visual impairments.
