Default grey and hazel colorblends against dark skin

I got these last Friday and tried them out. For some reason they photograph with a slightly blue tint but they are more grey in person. My friend said they looked natural from normal distances. I also got a pure hazel pair. Here are my pix. They are very close up so you can see how large the pupil opening is, but at normal distances it's not so obvious. The bottom right picutre is my natural dark brown color.

Those look good on you, cinamon78. Because your natural eye color is such a dark brown, the large pupil openings are not as obvious.

So, are you glad you got the contacts now that it's been about a week, or do you need a little more time?

I bought the Freshlooks plano just to make sure I liked the color. I had to wear them with my glasses though because FreshLook Toric doesn't come in a strong enough prescription for me. I like them enough that I bought them in my actual prescription. I have astigmatism so the doctor ordered Durasoft 3 ColorBlends Toric (same company, so hopefully same look). I am still waiting for them to come in. When I get the Durasoft I will post them to show if it looks any different.

Well I get them home and try them on and they look awesome. Too bad she ordered me one Turquoise and one Grey. Surprisingly I actually LOVE the turquoise even with my darker skin because it's not super blue. Here are two pix in different lights. The left eye is the turquoise one.

Hi cinamon78. Good to see you again. I hope you had a nice Memorial Day.

Looking into your eyes, it looks like the turquoise contact lens is in your right eye, which would be the left side of the picture, right . . . er . . . correct? The two colors are very close in these pictures. Perhaps "the lady at your doctor's office" thought so, too.

You are exactly right. The contact on the left side of the photo (my right eye) is the turqoise one. I'm not sure how she didn't notice when she took them out b/c the turquoise lens itself is very blue and blatantly different in hand. Oh well...and now I've been waiting for the replacement. Can't wait!

Hi Cinamon78. Thanks for posting the pictures. You look nice, but I think you'd look nicer with a smile. Come on, you've got FreshLook ColorBlends contacts, life is good!

What is the "lashing eye surgery"? Do you mean LASIK where your vision is corrected with a laser reshaping your eye?

That sounds cool. How many other people here on Lens 101 wear plano colored contact lenses after having your vision corrected surgically?

Hey Mathu,

How are things going for you these days? How are things now that the surgery is a few more weeks in the past? Do you wear the non-prescription ColorBlends now?

I agree, Adric. I think Cinamon 78 would look even better with a smile. Maybe she's just shy about getting her picture taken.

Are you shy, Cin?

Default Lenses on African Americans

I think colored eyes look beeautiful on dark skin,they pop more. Freshlook grays look unbelievable so does the Gray. My sis is darker skin and darker hair (middle eastern) and we both got Gray and Hazel freshlooks on Amazon. They r so natural. We get our nails done+color our hair+get extensions ...why not spice it up w changing eye colors sometimes.

That sounds like a great idea, loveme. Let FreshLook ColorBlends be a part of a whole makeover.

I think it depends on your skin tone. There are a lot of medium to light-skinned AA that have light eyes so it's not totally unbelievable. However, if you're as dark as Wesley Snipes and you have bright blue eyes it does look slightly questionable.

I agree. People need to be careful of the color they choose for their contact lenses. I know a girl who had blonde hair and blue eyes, and she got bright blue contact lenses. Her eyes were so blue it hurt my eyes to look at them.

Hi there.

I did a search online about FreshLook ColorBlends to find out how long you can wear them. There's no information about how long you can wear any kind of colored contact lenses on Lens.com while some sites say two weeks and others say one month. I guess I'm not much help to you there. Your best bet would be to talk to your eye doctor about the wear schedule that's right for you. (I sound like a commercial now, sorry.)

This is what it says on the FreshLook website:

"Only your eye care practitioner can determine the best wearing schedule for you. FreshLook Color Contact Lenses are designed for daily wear with nightly removal and proper cleaning and storage for up to two weeks before disposal."

There you go. I suspect you can wear these 24/7 for a week, or daytime only for two weeks. Again, "only your eye care practitioner can determine the best wearing schedule for you."

That's some wise advice, Railfan. It's usually a good idea to consult an expert.

The Ciba Vision FL Colorblend Lenses are made from Phemfilcon A which has a Dk of 16 and water content of 55%. This Dk is very low by modern standards.

As you say, check with your Eye Care Professional, but I doubt you could wear the lenses 24/7 for a week. Strictly daytime only wear I would suggest.

Default wearing Freshlooks

no I posted my pics on another topic of "posting pics" I finally did it:0
Ok my 50c on wearing Freshlooks, they are biweekly, if you wear everyday they last two week, some people stretch to more but it really depends on your eye. If you wear them couple times a week then lasts a month. But nothing more than a month. Then you are risking your eyes

Do you have a link so we can see those pictures you posted?

As far as the wear time for FreshLook ColorBlends. I had always heard that the can be worn for a week straight, but if you take them out at night, you can wear them 14 times, so if you only wear them every other day, they should last 28 days. Is that what your eye doctor told you?

That's the thing with Lens.com. They don't tell you on their website how long you can wear the color contacts.

Nice pictures, loveme, even if they're not all pictures of you. The one that is you looks pretty good, red pupils or not.

Refresh my memory. What does "NC" stand for?

Gray does not add color or change eye color but only makes a dark eye look lighter and colorless.

That looks like quite a costume, cinamon78.

The contacts look good on you. It's a nice color that I think suits you. They look comfortable as well. Your eyes don't look red or teary. Quite clear as a matter of fact. Do you use drops or anything to keep your eyes clear or are your contacts just that comfortable? You have a beautiful smile to top it all off. Thanks for adding more pictures.

I have found the acuvue2 colors pearl gray color very dull looking and muddy. However I have med brown eyes which as you know most lenses like Freshlook color blends which has gaps in the tint allows a bit of your own color to come through. BUT if you have black or very dark eyes they will look good.
