1. What are Colored Contacts?
Color contact lenses are most often used as a beauty product. Colored contacts, naturally, change the color of your eyes. Depending on the style and color of the lens, the change can be subtle or dramatic. We offer many types of colored lenses for all of your beauty needs: from everyday wear to cosplay and beyond! Fun fact: most types of cosmetic contacts can also be specially ordered with a variety of prescriptions. Why wear boring, plain contacts when you can try on a new color with your next pair of lenses?
2. Are Colored Contacts Safe to Wear?
Absolutely! Just follow the care instructions and use common sense to ensure safe, healthy usage of your colored eye lenses. We recommend consulting your optometrist to ensure a prescription isn't needed for your contacts, make sure they're suitable for your eyes, and ensure correct sizing and fit. Limit usage to the recommended number of hours per day and be sure to discard when expired. Different products have different life spans, so be sure to check that when ordering and when using.
3. What Colored Contacts are Safe?
Not all cosmetic contacts are created equal. At Misaki, we are proud to only offer high-quality lenses designed and manufactured with care to ensure safety & comfort. To ensure our products are suitable and safe for your eyes, be sure to see an eye doctor who can help with fit and comfort, as well as any prescriptions that might be needed. As always, the safest lenses are those prescribed by an optometrist.
4. Are Prescription Colored Contacts Safe?
Just like almost everything in life, it's all about how they're used! Color contacts that fit your eye well and are used correctly are quite safe. A quick exam visit with your eye doctor is the best way to ensure a proper fit—which is essential for both your safety and your comfort. Once you find color lenses that fit well, be sure to limit wear to the recommended time frames, clean your lenses by following the recommended best practices, and discard them at the end of their useful life.
5. What are the Safest Colored Contact Lenses?
The safest contacts are lenses prescribed by an eye doctor. (We know we've said this a lot already, but it's true, and it is important, so we will say it again!) A prescription ensures a proper fit and accurate vision correction. Cleaning, care, and maintenance are other important safety elements. Wearing contacts that don't fit correctly or contacts that haven't received proper care can lead to serious risks to your eyes like vision loss, impairment, and, in extreme cases, possible blindness.
6. What Color Contacts Should I Get?
The choice of color really depends on two factors: your current eye color and the effect you want to achieve. If you have darker eyes and want to see a dramatic change of color, look for more opaque options when you get your contacts. Lighter tones will deliver a more natural look. We offer a wide variety of colors and styles to deliver a look you're sure to love! Choose from brighter tones like blue and green, or try a new look with purples, greys, and costume lenses. Generally speaking, those with a dark original eye color should look for lighter lenses to see the effect and vice versa.
7. What Colored Contacts are Best for Brown Eyes?
Choosing contacts for brown eyes starts by identifying the color you'd like to achieve. For a warm glow that doesn't change your color, select warm lenses like a hazel or honey color. To more dramatically transform your look, choose cooler tones in a more opaque or vibrant style, which will create a more dramatic effect on brown eyes. With the right style of lens, even dark eyes can be transformed to green, blue, hazel, or beautiful violet shades.
8. What Colored Contacts are Best for Hazel Eyes?
If you're looking for the perfect lenses for hazel eyes, which are also a darker eye color, look for more opaque or dark colored contact lenses to achieve a vibrant change. Hazel eyes can easily be transformed into natural colors like warm and rich browns. Grays and greens are great lens colors to try on hazel eyes to achieve a vibrant, interesting eye shade. It all comes down to the result you hope to achieve with your cosmetic contacts.
9. Which Cosmetic Contacts are the Most Comfortable?
At Misaki, we pride ourselves on ensuring that every one of our colored lenses is quite comfortable. We formulated our wide range of vibrant colors of contacts with a high water content of 45-55%. This helps eyes to stay moist while you wear them, keeps them breathable, and ensures your comfort. We know you'll enjoy wearing your Misaki lenses so much you might forget they're there. No matter how comfortable our lenses may be, you should not exceed the recommended wearing time of 8 hours.
10. Which Colored Contact Lenses are Best?
All of our Misaki lenses deliver quality and comfort, guaranteed. To find the best cosmetic lenses for you, we carry 7 different series. In terms of visual appearance, you will want to select the series that matches your desired outcome for vibrancy of eye color and the pattern of the color placement. More important, however, is the fit of the lens on your eye and that you're ultimately comfortable wearing them. If you need support with fit, be sure to consult your doctor.
11. What Color Contact Lenses Look Natural?
If you're looking for natural-looking lenses, the best Misaki series for all eye colors is our Cotton Series. Our Cotton Series does not have an outer rim, meaning that the colors blend naturally onto your eye for a subtle shift. This series has more opaque colors, so they work well on dark colored eyes. Those with lighter eyes can also enjoy our Cotton Series to achieve a new eye color that isn't overly bright.
12. How Long Do Colored Eye Contacts Last?
The lifespan of colored contact lenses varies by brand and series. Discard daily lenses after each wear. At Misaki, our non-daily cosmetic contacts have a lifespan between 30 and 90 days. Our standard recommendation is to discard after 30 days. Depending on usage and maintenance, some users have safely used a pair of contacts for up to 90 days. If you are starting to experience slight discomfort when wearing your contacts, it's time to discard them and start a new pair.
13. Why to Buy Colored Contacts?
People buy colored eye contact lenses for a variety of reasons. Cosmetic lenses are a wonderful solution for enhancing your beauty. With a range of colors and styles, our contacts can be used for slight and subtle adjustments to your eye color or for more dramatic changes. Wear them every day or just for special occasions, you decide! We also offer special effect colored eye contacts that are great for dramatic makeup looks, Cosplay, Halloween costumes, and so much more.
14. How Much Do Colored Contacts Cost?
At Misaki, the cost of color contact lens differs because of our variety of types and styles in prescription and non-prescription options. Our standard lenses start at $28 for monthly lenses and go up to $35. The price is the same for regular prescription and non-prescription lenses. Our specialty Toric/Astigmatism lenses are $60 for a monthly supply. Our monthly lenses have a recommended life of 30 days, but with care and depending on usage, some customers have enjoyed a lifespan of up to 90 days.

16. How to Order Colored Contacts Online?
The best way to order high quality color contacts is to shop at Misaki! We offer seven series of lens designs that are easy to purchase without a prescription. If you need corrective lenses, it's easy to purchase prescription contacts online at Misaki by simply uploading your prescription information. To get a new prescription, simply see a doctor first, then order contacts online. If you have a current prescription and need the details, simply contact your ophthalmologist before ordering.
17. How Do Color Eye Contact Lenses Work?
When worn correctly, cosmetic lenses will not impact your ability to see. The clear part of the lens (the area in the middle) lines up with your iris. This allows light to travel to your eye as usual. The colored portion of the lens covers the colored part of your eye. Your eyes will appear to be transformed, but rest assured, it is only a temporary surface-level change. Cosmetic contacts will not permanently change your eye color.
18. How are Colored Contact Lenses Made?
A few different methods can be used to make safe, comfortable, high-quality cosmetic contacts. Most of our Misaki contacts use a layered approach where the tint is placed between two layers of contacts material. Another method is sometimes used where the tint is placed on top of the lens material. The vibrancy of your colored lenses is determined by the amount and style of tint applied, not the method of construction.
19. How to Put in Colored Eye Contacts?
Just like putting in prescription lenses, take care when inserting your cosmetic lenses. Start by washing your hands thoroughly before putting your contacts in and before touching your lenses or lens case. No matter how long you've been wearing lenses, it's imperative to put hygiene first to protect your eyes. Once your hands are clean, put the lens on the edge of your finger. Then, holding your eye open with the other hand, place the lens on your eye. Blink until it sits correctly.
20. How to Care for Your Color Contact Lenses?
To enjoy a full lifespan of your lenses, be sure you always thoroughly wash your hands before putting in or removing your contacts. After removing your lenses, be sure to clean your lenses with contact solution. Place them in a clean storage case with the recommended storage solution (check the specific lenses for care instructions). Some users benefit from doing a weekly clean to remove proteins.
21. How to Store Color Contact Lenses?
Daily contact users never need to worry about storage. Simply discard at the end of use and ensure you don't exceed the recommended wear time. If you have long-term contacts, which can also be called "monthly contacts," it's important to clean and store your lenses properly to ensure safe usage for the duration of the life of the lenses. Be sure to clean your hands before removing and then clean your lenses with an approved cleansing solution before placing your lenses in an appropriate case filled with storage solution.
22. How to Take Off Your Colored Eye Contacts?
It's easy to remove your lenses. Many people find it easier than putting them in, in fact! Always start by washing hands thoroughly, just before removal. Organize your cleaning and storage tools. When it's time for removing your contacts, simply look up. Use your finger to gently pull the contact down. From there, you can easily pinch the lens to pull the contact down and pinch the lens to pull it off your eye before cleaning and storing.
