Sure thing, prettiejen23. Contact lenses with no corrective power are called "plano." I'm not sure exactly how you would get those on line. You can probably get a prescription from your eye doctor with the base curve and diameter that you need, and just leave the "power" field blank. Of course you can always ask your eye doctor about plano colored contact lenses.

Let us know if you decide to buy some, okay?

It's been a few months, Lucky Witch. Have you gotten your brown contacts yet?

Huh. Usually I hear of people trying to get RID of their brown eyes, hiding them behind some alternate color. Guess we all envy the things we don't have. (Not me, mind you. I'm fine with my browns.)

Good for you, SLTE, although it's probably not a good thing to the people who sell the colored contacts.

You do wear regular contacts, don't you? Most companies that sell color contacts also sell the clear ones, so you're probably not putting anyone out of work.

Yes, I wear the normal ones. And I probably stretch each one a teensy weensy bit further than I should, so rest assured, I'm still doing my part to cheat the contact community out of profits. Huzzah.

Here's come links to forum with pictures of brown over black in Acuvue and Freshlooks. Hands down Acuvue looks WAY more natural. The freshlooks have that creepy yellow ring aroudn the eye. Compare those to a real light brown eye- Acuvue looks very natural. I dont understand why people continue to wear Freshlooks colorblends...they always look like their popping out of your eye with fake color.

I went to these sites and I tried to figure out which picture you were referring readers to, so I did my best to post them here. If I got the wrong ones, I apologize.

Now you don't have to leave Lens 101 to go look at pictures. They're right here.

Please don't leave Lens 101, ever, for any reason. We'll miss you if you don't come back.

I guess I'm lucky, because I wear freshlook cb brown over blue/green and they look totally natural. Maybe because I have a few spots of light brown around the pupils so that the blue/green does not show through.

LOL. You mean the blue doesn't show through, or the brown doesn't show up? Nobody has ever guessed that I wore brown contact, and even my own mother had forgotton that I was born with blue eyes. When she saw me without my contacts on the other day, she commented that I looked "spooky" with my weird blue contacts, lol.

I think Wendy was commenting on how blurry those pictures are. I can see the colors, but the lenses themselves are fuzzy.

Have you thought about going into advertising? You can use the slogan "Contact Lenses That Will Fool Your Own Mother."

Yup, about the fuzziness, that's what I get for taking such an up-close picture. And yep, "fool yer mama". Yes, that sounds like a good slogan!

Do you think you can post some more picture with a clearer look at your eyes? I want to see what kind of pattern the contact lenses have.

Wow that was fast. In that picture I can't tell you're wearing contacts at all.

Thanks. I am so ashamed of my natural eye color, that I don't tell anyone I am wearing contacts. But, when I wear a different color, like blue or green, which show up dark blue and dark green on my eyes, people think my eyes are brown underneath the contacts, and freshlook colorblends, because of their coloring (dark ring on the outside and goldish ring around the pupil) makes people think that.

Why are you so ashamed of your natural eye color? I know that not everyone appreciates it, but this is the first time I've seen someone use the word "ashamed." I'm sorry you feel that way, ziggy.

I hope you realize someday that you don't have to be ashamed of your natural eyes. You may never love them, and that's okay. I just don't like the idea of one of my friends on Lens 101 being ashamed of something that's natural, okay? Go ahead and wear your brown lenses, and enjoy them, but please don't be ashamed of anything that is a natural part of you.

Take care.

Thanss. Actually, now that my summer tan is gone for the year, my natural color doesn't look so harsh against my skin. I have also been experimenting with different makeups, and if I use light eye shadow and eyeliner, then my eyes look darker in comparison, and it doesn't look so bad anymore. Also, since I have tried colorblends blue, green, hazel and honey, I am liking the color varieties and have found a way to make my natural color look more mellow. Here is a picture of my natural eyes with makeup, and it doesn't look so bad anymore. the top picture is my natural eyes with makeup. Also, in darker light, they don't look so scary. I guess you can say I am no longer ashamed of my natural color.
