Default Color contact lens poll

Hi guys it's been a while since I did a poll. I have to wear either glasses or contact lens. So this time when I went to the eye doctor I thought why not try some colored contact lens. To get a better idea of the lens I took so pictures. They are a bit blurry. But I would love to get your vote. Which lens do you like best?
A. Gemstone Green
B. Sterling grey
C. Brilliant blue
D. Grey

I love the blue, it reminds me of the ocean and the sky.

I like the green, personally.
The greys don't make for much change from your natural color, so I would get a box of green and a box of blue, if I were you, and wear according to your whimsy.

I wear Air Optix now (one eye is -9.5, the other is -10.0, so yes, I am technically blind without them) and they are incredibly comfortable. I have gone 90 days between changes without any issue. I looked into laser corrective surgery, but have come to the realization that the cost of surgery = one helluva LOT of contact lenses, so I'm staying put. The funniest thing is, I have a friend who had the surgery done, and she now wears the colored contacts (non-prescription) so go figure....
---I know this is a purely cosmetic question, but just thought I would throw that one in.

The two grays are too close to your own eye color to bother with. The green is drab, but just a tad brighter, that would be pretty..so in this poll, the blue wins.

My prescription is -6.50 and -5.25 so I can related. Either way I'm wearing contacts so I figured why not have some fun with it. It would be funny to get the green and the blue and put one in each eye just to mess with people.

I agree with greys are too close. They show up a little more in person. But I was disappointed. But hey now I know what my natural eye color.

I used to work for Wesley Jessen of Chicago, and apart from making lenses for just about all the big movies where 'eye effects' were required we made a range of lenses, mostly ones that blended naturally to enhance the eye colo(u)r but also a range called Wild Eyes

PS if the poll is indecisive, then maybe one blue & one green is the way to go

I like the blue....but it's a biased opinion since I have blue eyes.

I like the green. I agree the grey is too close to your natural eye color.

Hi, i understand your concern but you no need to get worried and definitely you can meet your requirement of toric wear also you can choose some other Non Prescription Colored Contacts as per your vision choice.
