Make sure the light does not reflect from the computer screen. If bright light from the window falls directly on to the screen, rotate your work station to avoid it.

  • If your natural eye color is brown, you might choose contact lenses in violet, green, or blue.
  • If your skin, hair, and natural eye colors have cool, blue-red undertones, you might choose a warm-toned contact lens such as light brown.
  • If your skin is dark, you might choose bright-colored lenses.
  • Do you wear eye makeup? Choose a contact lens color that will stand out from the shadow and mascara colors you like to wear.

If you are a shy person or just want a natural look:-

  • If your natural eye color is blue, you might choose contact lenses in gray or green.
  • Another option is an enhancer lens in blue, which would define the edges of your iris and deepen your natural color, but not change it dramatically.
  • If your skin, hair, makeup and natural eye colors are warm-toned, you might choose a warm color contact lens such as hazel to match and blend in.
