Coloured Contact Lenses to Enhanced Your Appearance

If you’re going all-in for the change-up with your appearance, there’s a whole lot of options: that new haircut? A new outfit? Or you may even grow a beard (to impress your favourite barista)!

However, have you considered coloured contact lenses?

Coloured contacts offer an easy and effective way to enhance your natural beauty, transform your look, and have you feeling ready to slay the day.

It doesn’t have to be obvious either. Two differing styles of coloured contacts ensure your look can be subtle or bold:

  • Freshlook Colorblends: Looking for that perfect option resulting in subtle eye colour changes that look natural?

Freshlook Colorblends offers precisely that; with a range of colour tone choices, you get a blended colour style contact lens that will accentuate your natural eye colour. Have you ever wished your green eyes were just that little bit more green? Enhance your natural eye colour with Colorblends. After all, it will be our little secret.

  • Air Optix Colors: After a bold statement with a coloured contact lens, are you changing your eye colour completely?

Air Optix Colors offers a selection of colour contact lenses featuring vibrant and dramatic hues, creating a complete eye colour makeover! These will make your eye colour pop! If you’ve always wondered what it’s like to have those gorgeous baby-blue eyes or eyes that mesmerise with a deep, rich brown tone, Air Optix Colors are well worth looking into.

And what about that special occasion when you want to ditch the specs?

Making Occasions Memorable with Coloured Contact Lenses

It could be your best friend’s wedding, school photos, your pending Year-12 formal, or even the yearly family portrait session—that old chestnut.

For prescription glasses wearers, these events add an extra layer of uncertainty and tension. It can be hard to feel glamorous in that fabulous outfit… when you feel like you’re hiding behind your glasses frames all day (or night). And it can be even harder to justify a new pair of prescription glasses just for the day (even if you’ll be all over Insta!).

What can you do though?

Simple! Contact lenses to the rescue.

DID YOU KNOW? Contact lenses come in a single-use, one-day wear option, meaning you can wear contact lenses for a specific event and be done with it without excessive costs!

And while we’re at it, let’s change your eye colour. Coloured eye contact lenses are perfect for special events and occasions where you want to stand out and make a lasting impression while avoiding the nuisance of taking off your prescription eyewear for every single photo.

Whether it’s a wedding, family gathering, formal, or other significant event in your life, coloured contacts allow you to complement your outfit with eye-catching eye colours, adding an extra touch of style and allure to your ensemble.

However, it’s about more than just what everyone else sees regarding coloured contact lenses!

Boost Your Confidence with Coloured Contact Lenses

We usually have a few staples for boosting our confidence—a favourite pair of shoes or a particular track you crank whilst getting ready. Let’s add another arrow to your quiver of confidence-building, go-to jams with coloured eye contacts.

Wearing colour contact lenses in Australia can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem with an immediately recognisable, fresh, and enhanced look. Coloured contacts are great for parties, functions, job interviews, and anywhere you need to put your best foot forward.

Interested in Trying Coloured Contact Lenses?

With a simple eye examination, an optometrist can determine what size contact lens and what prescription (if necessary) would work best. In consultation with your optometrist, you can also discuss whether you want to go for the subtle look or the dramatic change-up with the two options mentioned earlier.


It’s good to know, too, that Medicare covers this initial consultation with a bulk-billed eye test.

Once your trial contact lenses are available, we will arrange two appointment sessions: the first is your Teach & Fit consultation, where the optometrist does exactly that—teaches you how to insert and remove your coloured eye contacts comfortably. The second is a review appointment, where your optometrist will have you arrive for the appointment wearing your trial contact lenses for at least a few hours.

Here, they will review any questions you may have about putting them in and taking them out and assessing any comfort aspects of wearing colour contact lenses.

A Note on Costs For Contact Lens Consultations

Medicare doesn’t cover these follow-up consultations. But they aren’t expensive and are covered with a one-off fee (this amount differs from optometrist to optometrist).

Also, you only make contact lens purchases (or are charged for any contact lenses) after you (and your optometrist) are satisfied with insertion/removal skills and you feel like wearing contact lenses is something you want to pursue—once you gain the skills you’re set to go.


Introducing coloured contact lenses into your lifestyle and prescription eyewear options is impressive for enhancing your appearance, stepping out in style for specific occasions, or giving you the upper hand with a confidence boost!
