Colored Contacts

Contact lenses aren't just for seeing better. They're for looking better too. In fact, some people who don't even need vision correction wear tinted contact lenses as a way to change their look.

Today's tinted lenses allow you to enhance your natural eye color — making the blue bluer or the green greener — or change it altogether.

Three categories of tinted contact lenses are available:

  • Cosmetic enhancement tints are designed to enhance your natural eye color. These translucent lenses are best for light-colored eyes (blues and greens, hazels and grays). When wearing these tints, the color of your eye becomes a blend of the lens tint and your natural eye color.
  • Opaque, or "cosmetic," tints change the color of dark eyes. The pattern on the lens, which is colored, overlies the colored part of your eye. The result is a natural look.
  • Visibility tints are very pale, but are colored enough to make the contact lens visible during handling without any effect on eye color.

With tinted lenses you accomplish two goals at once: Seeing better and looking better.

SOUTH COAST OPTOMETRY UPDATE – JULY 1, 2020

COVID-19 has been and continues to be an ongoing trial for all of us. During this unforeseen time, we ask kindly for your understanding and compliance to the CDC guidelines. In order to decrease the chances of contraction, we are allowing only one parent to accompany their child during the examination. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

We also want to inform you of the new additional symptoms of COVID-19 that have been added to the previous symptoms as potential indicators of having COVID-19:

New symptoms:             Congestion/runny nose
                                           Nausea
                                           Diarrhea

Previous symptoms:       Headache
                                            Fever/chills
                                            Dry cough

                                            New loss of taste or smell

Please be aware that a person does not have to have all of these symptoms but anyone or multiple symptoms can be an indicator of having COVID-19. If you or any family members are experiencing any of the above symptoms, we kindly ask that you reschedule your appointment and contact yourprimary care provider. It is best to reschedule your appointment with us after being symptom-free for14 days.
