It’s hip to apply different eye colors to change your style and personality as well as to improve your look. That’s why you may see people wearing contacts without prescription to be part of the latest fashion fad. These days prescription-free contact lenses are used for a wide range of cosmetic purposes because they can change the color of your eyes for whatever purpose you have in mind. These contact lenses are called cosmetic colored lenses and are used for a variety of reasons.
One use of non-prescription contact lenses of course, is for special effects or theatrical purposes. They are in demand for movie genres such as horror or adventure flicks. A lot of theater and film actors need a different eye color for the role they play, because using the right cosmetic colored lenses make their character more credible and realistic.
The typical special effects contacts used in movies or theater include: purple, red and blue contacts, cat eye contacts, full dark black lenses or glow in the dark lenses. These contacts can also be used for special occasions, which is the reason the demand is on the rise. However, there can be a potential problem for people with unhealthy or weak eyes developing eye problems if not used properly.
