Going Green with AIR OPTIX® COLORS



Notice anything just a little different in the photos above? My eyes, perhaps? 

When I was in high school, I thought I’d be super cool if I had dark hair and blue eyes. Well, changing my naturally very dark brown eyes to blue turned out to be a dramatic change which ended up looking incredibly fake and pretty much the exact opposite of “super cool.” Thank goodness I don’t have a photo of this to share with you all!

AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses reached out to me recently and asked if I would be interested in trying their new line of colored contacts and, for a moment, I flashed back to those awful blue eyes. But, I thought it would be fun to give them a try and see how colored contacts had changed since I last tried them.


Because I wear contacts daily for my incredibly bad vision, it was a very easy thing to just try a different kind of lens. As far as wear goes, the AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses are really comfortable and easy to wear. After trying 4 colors (gray, blue, pure hazel and green) at LensCrafters, where I got an exam to check my prescription and get fitted for these lenses, I chose the subtle green. For me it adds just enough color to be different but not so much to be dramatic (like that high school blue). I think it’s also fun to see how my usual makeup colors look with a different eye color.

If you’re interested in trying the AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses, you can actually head over to their Color Studio, upload a photo and see how you look in the various color options. And if you haven’t yet, make sure you make your annual eye appointment to have your vision and eye health checked!
