Blue eyes have been an object of desire of people around the world for centuries. There are songs and poems written about irises as blue as the sky or the sea and, rather unsurprisingly, the most famous photo models from the front covers of the magazines have blue eyes. There’s undoubtedly something mesmerizing and alluring about pale coloured eyes and it is reflected in the popularity of blue contact lenses.
It’s interesting to note that the blue colour of the iris does not result from the presence of a blue pigment in the eyes, but rather from the lack of one called melanin. In a nutshell, melanin (among other things) is responsible for the brown colour of your irises, so if you don’t have it, your eyes seem blue due to the way light rays break and are reflected from your eyes. It is not very common to have azure eyes, because most of us have at least some melanin in the irises, which gives us a never-ending array of eye colours, from pale green to dark brown. Levels of melanin can change slightly throughout a lifetime and might be influenced by certain health conditions, but generally speaking, eye colour is something we’re born with. If you’re reading this, it probably means that you are not among the lucky 10% of the population born without the melanin in their eyes, but perhaps you wish you were. We hear you and we’re here for you!
For several reasons, some of which were mentioned above, blue coloured contact lenses constitute one of our most popular categories. Some people simply want their hazel or brown eyes to be the colour of the sky, while others wish to add some depth or a new tone to their naturally blue eyes. Also, changing your eye colour from dark brown to light blue can mean a huge metamorphosis, that’s why some people choose it as a way of totally transforming their look.No wonder that blue contact lenses are in such high demand.
Our selection of blue contacts provides a number of fantastic choices for all of these groups, as the lenses range from delicate and almost transparent to practically opaque (suitable for wearers with dark eyes). Also, the category includes special effects lenses, so you can even go for something disturbing or creepy and achieve the look of, for instance, a White Walker.
If you don’t know which blue lenses might work for you, we recommend trial and error as the best way of finding that out. After all, contacts are just like hair dyes - they might look totally different on two different people. You can also read this short, subjective categorisation of blue contact lenses that we have prepared to make it easier for you to make the right choice.
It’s worth noting that the vast majority of products presented in this category are available with corrective powers. Most of them can be ordered with minuses for correcting nearsightedness, but some of them also come in pluses for farsightedness. What’s more, we even have blue toric contacts for astigmatism! Therefore if you need blue prescription contact lenses, you’re looking in the right place.
Whatever your preference is, you’re bound to find something great for yourself here!
