Everyone seems to have some particular characteristics they would like to see in a potential partner. A person can browse an online dating service and select members from a break down of physical characteristics like height, weight, hair color, and eye color. While there is no way, aside from shoe lifts and proper posture, to increase your height, measures are sometimes taken in order to change weight, hair, and eye color.
People have used diets and hair dye for centuries now. You can get hundreds of different shades of hair coloring products for a man or a woman. Likewise you can subscribe to a hundred different programs to shed a few excess pounds. Or you could select from hundreds of different books on dieting and nutrition. That would leave eye color left as the only attribute of those four we mentioned to be changed.
Changing your eye color through colored contact lenses would have to be the most recently changeable physical aspect presented to us. Through colored contact lenses you can change your brown eyes to blue, or so the advertisements say. Some young people have gone as far as wearing opposite colors such as one contact in blue and the other violet.
Every color of the rainbow is represented in colored contacts now. From brown to purple there is an entire spectrum of colors to choose from. You can buy colored contacts with a skull and crossbones on them, or even an eight ball. Different optical companies are continuously improving and outdoing each other in the lens market and striving for more natural looking colored contact lenses. So if there is a color you want, you can more than likely visit your optometrist and get lenses in that color.
There seems to be one draw back concerning colored contacts, though. Unlike what the advertisements say, your naturally dark mocha eye coloring may show through the tint of the lenses trying to make your eyes royal blue. Up close some lenses seem flat and don’t show the normal striations and variance. A lens may not be fitted properly and may “float” on the cornea when a person blinks, showing the eye coloring behind the tinted lenses. As with all contact lenses, it is important to select your optometrist wisely. Someone who will take the time and care necessary to make sure that your lenses are properly fitted could save you from being the person that has “fake contacts”, to the person who has gorgeous colored eyes.
