Let’s face it it’s quite easy to get stuck in a rut with the way you look, isn’t it? Sometimes a change of lipstick or a trip to your favourite clothes shop isn’t enough to alter your look in the way you want.

At Eye Emporium we have your perfect solution; coloured contact lenses.

Whether you already wear glasses or contact lenses, or you have 20/20 vision, coloured contact lenses can be used to subtly or dramatically alter your look in a way that you might not have considered before.

In our practices, we recommend FreshLook contact lenses. They’re extremely comfortable to wear, they meet the same safety standards as regular contact lenses, and they come in a fantastic range of colours. No matter what colour your natural eyes are, or how extreme you want the colour change to be, FreshLook have you covered.


If you already wear contact lenses then FreshLook are easy to get used to. You use them in the same way as your normal contact lenses, although at first you may notice them move around a little more than you’re used to.

If you wear glasses, we can have FreshLook lenses made up to your usual prescription, though you may need an eye examination first to ensure that your prescription is up to date. We will then give you a trial of the lenses to make sure you know how to use them safely and that they are comfortable for you to wear. At first you may find wearing contact lenses a little strange – especially if you’ve never worn them before. Persevere though, you will get used to them surprisingly quickly and soon you won’t even notice they’re in (except for when you see your new eye colour in the mirror!).

Even if your vision is perfect, at Eye Emporium we can help you with coloured contact lenses by having your chosen colour made up with no prescription. Again, we will give you a trial first to ensure that you know how to handle and take care of your contact lenses, and to check that they’re comfortable and don’t cause you any irritation.



The colour choice is the fun part, and that’s entirely up to you. You may want to give your brown eyes a hint of blue, or you might want to enhance your green eyes to look like jewels. There is a huge selection of colours to choose from and we will help guide you to the best colours to work with your natural eye colour.

You may have seen coloured or patterned contact lenses for sale online or in party-type shops, especially around Halloween. We highly recommend you stay away from these lenses. If they’re not prescribed by an optometrist you are putting your eyes at serious risk of infection or even blindness. These lenses don’t meet industry standards, and it’s really important that you’re shown how to use them properly so that you don’t cause damage to your vision.

If you’re interested in a temporary change of eye colour and think you’d like to try out some FreshLook lenses, just give our friendly team at Eye Emporium a call on 0800 020 9202. We love helping people to update their look with new eyewear and accessories!
