What’s up with the lens sizes?
Whether you want to keep a realistic, natural look with your colored contacts or you want to achieve big, bright, dolly eyes, there is a pair of colored contacts for your preference. Choose colored contacts lenses best designed for your personal style. EyeCandy’s makes it easy to browse lenses by the effect you most desire!
One aspect of colored contact design is the printed area of the lens itself. Our contacts are available in 14.2mm (and below), 14.5mm, 14.8mm, and 15.00mm. There is a general rule of thumb when it comes to selecting colored contact lenses by size. The larger the diameter, the larger the appearance of your iris. And why is it that we love a pair of big, pouty eyes? A larger-looking iris is associated with innocence and child-like wonder. Think of all your favorite dolls from childhood. What did they all have in common? Large irises, of course! With our colored contacts lenses, you too can sport the look of a beautiful porcelain piece of art! If you’re looking for a more natural appearance, look for a smaller or average sized printed area. And no worries - you don’t have to be an expert in eyewear to choose the best for you. EyeCandy’s descriptions feature a variety of images so you can see for yourself how they might look on you - as well as size information.
If you’re devoted to taking on that doll-eye look, or want to create more definition around your iris, take a look at circle lenses. Circle lenses increase the look of your pupil. Some can also serve as a tool to create definition between the iris and the whites of your eye, something that many wearers are colored contact lenses love!
There are different print patterns for every desire, as well. Some prefer a more solid look with just one tone. Others like a more discrete pattern that blends with their natural eye color. Or, for a really natural, yet unique look, try a contact lens with three (or more) tones that blend together for an effect you can’t take your eyes off of! Love what you see in the mirror with a simple, easy enhancement.
Aren’t color contacts bad for your eyes?
That's a common misconception. You may hear stories of people having difficulty with their colored contacts lenses. Usually, this comes in the form of mild discomfort. But, provided that you wear and maintain them properly, there will be no harm to your eyes from using colored contact lenses. In fact, there are no additional risks vs wearing clear contact lenses.
It is especially important, if using a prescription lens, that it is prescribed and fitted accurately by an eyecare professional. EyeCandy’s requires an upload of your most recent prescription in order to ensure we are sending your lenses perfect for your peepers! If you have a different prescription for each eye, pay close attention to the product description as most of our lenses are sold in pairs or multi-pair boxes. You’ll want to order one pair or box in each prescription strength. Bonus - you can always have a pair on deck!
It is also recommended that you wear them for no longer than 6 hours a day, clean them using fresh, unexpired solution. You always want to make sure that neither the lenses nor solution is expired. Additionally, any advice from your optometrist or optician should be strictly followed, with no exceptions. You can correct your vision, and update your look, with no concern to your personal health or safety.
How can I be sure my colored contacts are safe?
It’s important to only use color contacts brands certified by national and international health authorities. EyeCandy’s keeps your health our #1 priority–we only stock brands approved by the FDA (American Drug and Food Administration), Health Canada, KDFA (Korean Drug and Food Administration) and/or CE1023.

EyeCandy’s offers fair prices that won’t break the bank, but in only the best brands, certified for health and safety standards. We will never expect you to sacrifice safety or quality in order to enjoy a reasonable value!
Are my eyes safe for colored contacts?
Before you even consider purchasing colored contact lenses, you should consult an optician or eye health specialist to make sure your eyes are suitable for wearing contacts. Not all eyes are the same as eye shape and possible conditions can affect your ability to wear lenses. It is especially important to consult medical advice if you are intending to wear cosmetic lenses for a prolonged amount of time.
Can anyone wear contact lenses?
Contact lenses are a convenient option for those looking to correct their vision without the hassle of glasses, or those just looking to change up their appearance by experimenting with different eye colors. But, unfortunately, they aren’t for everyone. Our current technology does provide some limits.
For example, if you suffer from dry eye syndrome, contacts may not be for you. Those who are severely nearsighted may not be able to find contact lenses with a strong enough prescription to fully correct their vision.
Unfortunately, some people are allergic to the contact cleaning solution, or even the contacts themselves. As daily cleaning of contact lenses is crucial to eye health for contact wearers, an allergy to the cleaning solution poses a very real issue.Some doctors recommend that diabetic patients avoid contact lenses. This is due to the fact that they may be more prone to infection and may not recover from infections as easily.
Though many of our beautiful contact lenses appeal to even young children, it is not recommended that contacts are worn before adolescence. Children’s eyes are particularly sensitive and fragile and wearing contacts at a young age could cause eye damage.
People suffering from the following should not wear our colored contact lenses, as these eye conditions may be further irritated by inserting lenses:
Any eye infections (Such as Conjunctivitis)
Any corneal conditions (Such as Keratitis)
Any allergic eye conditions (Such as Hayfever)
Any chronic disease of the eye (Such as Glaucoma
Aren’t colored contact lenses uncomfortable to wear?
If you’ve experienced discomfort due to wearing contact lenses before, this could be for a variety of reasons. The contact lenses themselves may have been low quality or expired. They may not have been cleaned and handled properly. Or, your eyes may have been dry, leading your contacts to feel itchy and irritate your eyes.
When shopping for contact lenses, clear or colored, you want to pay close attention to the water content. This number is listed as a percentage. In general, the higher the water content, the more moist your eye will feel when wearing them and the more comfortable your eyes will be. There are also a number of other options for keeping your eyes hydrated. A high-quality contact solution can help maintain eye moisture, as well as proper care and cleaning. And, while we’re on the topic of artificial tears, let’s address one of the main questions we receive from those who have never experienced vision correction or style enhancement with contact lenses.
I keep reading how important it is to properly care for and clean for my lenses. How do I clean them?
Once you have the lenses, you should make sure you understand all the ins and outs of cleaning and maintenance. Make sure you have all the know-how on inserting and removing lenses before you wear! Here are a few dos and don’ts when it comes to colored contact lens safety.
DO consult your optician or eye doctor before wearing/purchasing a pair of our lenses.
DO wash and dry your hands whenever you handle your lenses or attempt insertion/removal.
DO soak your lenses for two hours in solution prior to inserting them into your eye.
DO wash your lenses in solution if they touch anything besides your eyes.
DO keep your lenses case clean and regularly change the eye care solution.
DO remove the contacts before you go to sleep, bathe, shower or partake in water sports.
DO remove the lenses if you feel any unexpected irritation, soreness or notice redness or excessive eye watering.
DO seek medical advice if you notice any of the conditions mentioned above.
DO NOT use lenses after the recommended duration (E.g. 1 day, 90 days, 1 year).
DO NOT use tap water, saliva or household product to clean the lenses, only the eye care solution.
DO NOT let the contacts come into contact with any cosmetic products i.e. makeup, deodorants, hair sprays.
DO NOT attempt to insert lenses that seem damaged, broken or torn or in any way compromised.
DO NOT insert more than one pair of lenses into your eye at one time.
DO NOT share lenses with another person.
Any uncertainties or concerns when using contact lenses should be discussed with an eye care specialist or optician. Ensure you know all the tips and tricks before you get started with a pair of colored contact lenses. Above all, make sure you DO have fun wearing our colored contact lenses.
What are colored contact lenses made of?
We offer lenses built from a variety of materials. One popular option is silicone hydrogel. Silicone is a soft material and these gel lenses offer a higher oxygen permeability, meaning they feel more natural and comfortable. They maintain this oxygen permeability and moisture longer than traditional lenses. It’s actually the same material used to bandage the eye as part of many treatments. This does not mean you don’t have to care for them just as you would any other lens. It just goes to show that we truly offer the newest and best contact lenses that technology has to offer. And when an even more amazing product is created to help you see clearly and showcase your style, we will offer it - of course after it passes many health and safety tests and is approved by the top medical equipment testing agencies.
Can I cry with my contacts in?
Absolutely! We certainly hope that they are tears of joy - but regardless, your eyes function just as they normally do when you have your contact lenses in. So, blinking, crying, and just a few stray tears watching The Notebook are all possible, even when you’re looking absolutely fabulous in your new fave accessory.
Are colored contact lenses expensive?
For many, cost is one of the key factors in making purchase choices of all sorts - colored contact lenses included! We offer an incredible value on all products found on our site. The price of your contact lenses depends on a few factors. If you need Toric lenses, those will cost a bit more as they are made to order from your measurements. Depending on the prescription corrective strength you require, that may also change the price of your lenses. Typically, the cost is related to the wear cycle of your colored contact lenses.
Lenses built for a yearly replacement cycle are designed to last a full year of daily wear with proper care. Again, if you require a prescription that is different in each eye, you’ll want to order two pairs if they are sold in pairs. For a yearly pair of color contact lenses, you can expect a price tag of about $25 - $40 USD. In overall savings, this is typically your best bet. And of course, the more recognizable brand names tend to run higher in price. Keep in mind, our standards are high and we only accept products from the very best manufacturers. All of the contacts we stock are approved by multiple agencies and tested for safety and quality.
We also offer prescription and non prescription colored contact lenses designed for a six month and three month wear cycle. These run similar in price to the yearly lenses, around the range of $25 - $40 USD. These are also a great value as just two or three pair at this cost will last an entire year. It’s perfect for anyone who knows what they like and is ready to commit. But honestly, at this price, there’s no reason you can’t buy more than one to change things up!
Our biweekly lenses are built for wear for a full two weeks if cared for properly. This is a great option if you like a frequent color change, or if you just love that new contact feeling. A box of two runs around $24 USD. With these, you will want to be sure to order two boxes if you need a different prescription strength for each eye.
Weekly lenses are sold as a box of 12, meaning one box can last you 12 weeks. Two boxes if you need two different prescription strengths. ;) The price range for these prescription or nonprescription color contact lenses is around $34.
Our no-maintenance dailies range around $20 - $40 USD. Pay close attention to how many lenses are included in the box when ordering - and of course order a box of each prescription strength you require so that you have crystal-clear vision from both eyes. Daily lenses are a popular option for many - especially those who love to change up their eye look from day to day or to coordinate with outfits or makeup looks.
Thankfully for those needing vision correction, prescription colored contacts exist. The lenses made for myopia (nearsightedness) cost the same as their non-prescription counterparts. EyeCandy’s stocks lenses from 0.0 to -10.00, so you are all set whether you have natural 20/20 vision or need serious correction in order to work productively and drive safely. Toric colored contacts, which correct astigmatism, usually cost more as they are built to fit the eye of the wearer by more precise specifications.
Yearly, Monthly, Weekly, Daily - How Do I Choose?
No matter what wear cycle you personally prefer, EyeCandy’s can find you a pair of colored contacts best for you! Out lenses are categorized depending on their replacement cycles (daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly, tri-monthly, semi-annually, and annually). So, whether you’re looking for a pair for one-time use to give you an out-of-this-world look for a special event or colored contacts lenses for everyday wear to school or work, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for here.
What colors do you have?
You can shop our collection of colored contacts by color, lens diameter, style, or wear cycle. So whether you’re looking for something “out there” in a vivid purple or print, or a lens that will blend with your natural eye color to offer just a bit of enhancement to your current appearance, you can navigate our site with ease to get directly to what you’re looking for. Browse for a pair to wear every day to correct your vision, or for that little something extra to help you stand out this Halloween.
Sure to demand a second glance, check out our solid, opaque colored contacts lenses, which completely cover your natural iris and change your eye color. For a more subtle change, try one of our clear lenses with a limbal ring to widen your iris or just provide more definition to the outside of it. For a rich, complex look, try one of our multi-tonal colored contacts lenses, with up to 7 tones in each lens. Build on your natural color or enjoy lenses that create the illusion of a twinkle in your eye. They won’t be able to look away - and neither will you! Imagine LOVING how you look in the mirror - and holding your head up high, offering direct eye contact knowing your conversation partner is gazing into a gorgeous set of peepers they’ll adore!
What color should I choose?
Well, of course, that is completely up to you! And we have tons of options for you to choose from! But, we can tell you a little about the most sought-after eye colors and leave the rest up to you. In a recent survey, it was found that blue was considered the most attractive eye color by both men and women. Blue eyes are associated with innocence.
Now, you may be worried that with naturally dark eyes, blue is a look you won’t be able to pull off. Luckily for you, we have several light contact lenses designed with you in mind. Just check in the description if they’re listed as “Good for dark eyes.”
After blue, green was identified as the second most attractive eye color Green and Amber are both listed as uncommon eye colors, making them a popular colored contact lens choice, along with grey. Other rare eye colors, such as violet and pink, occur occasionally in nature, but only among those born with albinism. But, thanks to advanced technology, those are shades you can choose to explore temporarily with colored contact lenses! As you explore our collection, you will see the options are virtually endless!
Why do you need my prescription in order to send my color contact lenses?
If you require a prescription contact lens, EyeCandy’s will need to verify your prescription. We’ve implemented a prescription verification system that is in compliance with the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumer Law (LCLCA). This is for your safety and to ensure that you have the very best lens fit for you. Our verification process is quite simple. You can choose to upload your prescription online or simply send us your doctor’s name and phone number and we can take it from there.
Don’t worry - it’s much quicker and easier than you might think. This process takes 12 hours. Our initial phone call is meant to inform your optometrist’s office of your provided prescription, so that they can, at their convenience, verify it by calling us. The FCLCA requires that the contact lens vendor (EyeCandy’s) must wait for at least 8 hours after the call before shipping anything. If the vendor (EyeCandy’s) does not receive a response from the optometrist within this time frame, the vendor is allowed to process and ship the order. We can accept a prescription from any qualified doctor, as long as it’s up to date, accurate, and can be verified according to our process.
If you’re finding it difficult to find an optometrist's office nearby with hours to meet your needs (or you just don’t feel like leaving the house and want to get your prescription updated), we have a convenient option online. You can get an online eye exam with a contact lens prescription from the comfort of your own home. The service is offered by Opternative and costs $40 USD. After you receive the prescription, please send it to us either with the upload form when you place your order or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Curious about what all those numbers on your prescription mean? Well, we don’t believe there should be any secrets from you about your eyes - so we can help you figure that out with a fun little chart we offer.
Why would my doctor decline my request?
If your eye doctor agrees that the lenses you have chosen are suitable for your eyes then your order will be processed. If they decline your optician check your order may be cancelled and refunded. In this situation, we advise consulting with your optometrist to find out why they declined your request and if there are any alternative pairs of novelty colored contact lenses that are more suitable. With good communication, we are sure that you, your optometrist, and EyeCandy’s can find the perfect fit and a look you’ll love!
Your optometrist may decline your check if the diameter or base curve does not match your eyes, or if the power or corrective lenses you have chosen is incorrect. Please note that the RX check applies to both corrective and non-corrective lenses.
I keep hearing about UV damage - can you help?
UV damage can be a real problem - and one that lasts a lifetime. This is the case for not just our skin, but our eyes as well. Protecting your eyes from UV rays is incredibly important. And EyeCandy’s offers contact lenses with UV protection properties built in. How cool is that?! We still recommend wearing sunglasses as an additional barrier - and we certainly still frown upon staring directly into the sun. But, the UV barrier of our lenses can certainly help to prevent sun damage. UV damage isn’t only an issue in the summer. In fact, water and snow can reflect UV rays, making them even more damaging. So, if protecting your eyes from the sun’s rays is a priority, take a look at our UV protection lenses.
What if I don’t need a prescription?
20/20 vision, but still want to customize your eyes with colored contact lenses? EyeCandy’s offers both prescription and nonprescription colored contact lenses. Those without prescription (aka “plano lenses”) are also known as cosmetic contact lenses. Because just because you don’t NEED to wear contacts doesn’t mean you don’t WANT to! Color contacts are the fastest, easiest accessory out there. Give your look an instant pop of color now! Have as much fun choosing your eye look as you do trying on lipstick or browsing handbags! With EyeCandy’s, changing it up is just as easy as popping in a new pair of earrings or throwing on a scarf as you head out the door. What are you waiting for?! Click into the category of your choice and find your new favorite eye look!
I can’t wait to get started. But how do I put my contacts in?
Putting in your contact lenses for the first time may seem like a scary process, but trust us when we say it couldn’t be simpler. We know, we know... Though you may have a slight amount of difficulty putting in your color contacts the first few times, you’ll soon get into the habit. It just takes a little bit of patience for the first few times!
Before you get started popping in your contact lenses, make sure you have the following a contact lens case and a bottle of contact lens solution.
We strongly recommend that you soak your contact lenses in solution for at least two hours before putting them into your eyes for the first time. And yes, we know it can be hard to wait - you already had to wait that whole time between clicking Submit and finding the box in your mailbox.
But, your patience will pay off in spades. We promise! This will both help protect your eyes and allow the contact lenses to slip into place much more easily. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to get started! And lucky for you, we’re here with a step-by-step guide. Before you know it, you’ll be an expert contact lens applicator.
Take Out Your Lens – After thoroughly washing and drying your hands, lift the contact lens out of its case. It is recommended that you pick up the lens with the index finger of your dominant hand. Ensure that the lens sits on your fingertip the right way – with it curving outwards. (It can sometimes be difficult to tell if a lens is inside out or not, so be sure to inspect it before placing it in your eye.)
Lower Your Eyelid – With your other hand, hold your eye open. The best way to do this is to the pull down your eyelid with your index finger, being sure to hold your lashes down as well. If not, your lens is very likely to get caught up in your lashes – which isn’t ideal! This part can be tricky. Your natural response will be to blink, as your brain is programmed to prevent ocular damage in the form of objects entering your eye.
Place The Contact In Your Eye – Look upwards with your eye, exposing the white portion, and gently insert the contact lens. You are likely to feel a strong urge to blink when doing this the first few times – which is completely natural – but try to avoid doing so. If the contact lens isn’t in properly, you will know immediately, with it more than likely coming out when you blink.
Allow The Lens To Settle – Finally, hold your eye closed for a few seconds to allow the lens to settle in. After this, check in the mirror to see if it’s gone in properly. If it has, then congrats! You’ve done it!
Repeat With The Other Eye – After this, repeat the process with your other eye. Once that’s done, you’re finished! Go out there and rock your new look!
If the process doesn’t go well, or you find yourself struggling to put the contacts in, be willing to take a break in order to avoid irritating your eyes too much. Also, remember to reapply some contact solution to them if you feel like they’ve dried out while you’ve tried to put them in! Again, this is a case where your patience will really pay off!
Try not to get frustrated if you can’t get the hang of the process straight away. It’s always worth paying a visit to an optician if you’re having too much trouble – as we’re sure they’d be happy to help you out. An optician should also be visited if you notice anything unusual when putting your lenses in. The health of your eyes is the most important thing!
Okay, they’re in and I love them. But how do I get them back out?
Removing contact lenses can often be thought of as an arduous task. Luckily, we’ve pieced together a helpful run-down of how to correctly remove your colored contact lenses. Regardless of whether you’re or not you’re new to using coloured contact lenses, this helpful, step-by-step guide is here to help shed some light on the do’s and don’ts.
Make Sure You Thoroughly Wash and Dry Your Hands! - DO NOT skip this step! It’s paramount that you wash and cleanse your hands properly before coming into contact with your eyes or colored contact lenses. In doing so, you will greatly reduce the risk of infection and bacteria spreading unnecessarily. For contacts that have a longer wear cycle, such as monthly or yearly durations, we highly recommend you store your lenses in a disinfected lens case, filled with approved multipurpose solution.
Gently Separate Your Eyelids (Pull Down Your Lower Eyelid and Pull Up Your Upper) - It is of great importance, more so for prescribed lenses, that you start with the same eye every time you come to remove your lenses. The process is simple, all you need to do is gently pull down on your lower eyelid then pull up your upper eyelid so that your eyelashes are as close to your eyebrow as possible.
Carefully Pinch The Contact Lens Using Both Your First Finger and Your Thumb - This step can be daunting, but as with anything, it comes with practice. All you need to do is place your forefinger and thumb at either side of your colored contact lens and gently pinch. You should feel the lens move between your fingers, this is completely normal and shows that you’ve successfully managed to acquire the lens.
Avert Your Gaze Upwards and Slide The Contact Lens Down and Off Onto Your First Finger - Once you feel the lens between your thumb and forefinger, then next step is to look up. In doing so, you’ll be able to smoothly slide the lens down onto the white of your eye and then off onto your finger. If it didn’t work the first time, don’t panic! Gently repeat the process or seek help from someone close to you.
Repeat on The Other Eye - As simple as it sounds, the next step is to repeat the process on your remaining eye!
Just like putting the contact lenses in, taking them out requires patience the first few times. If you become frustrated, do not hesitate to take a break and come back to the venture.
