Expressions Colors are contact lenses manufactured by Cooper Vision. These lenses not only correct your vision, but they also allow you to change or manipulate your eye color. Expressions lenses do not sacrifice comfort nor acuity by adding this color-changing twist, and they have been approved for their intended use by the FDA and other applicable bodies which regulate contact lenses. Expressions are differentiated from other color changing lenses by employing a patented tinting process which produces more realistic color changes. Whereas many colored lenses leave you looking like an alien or a character from a horror movie, this tinting process used by Cooper Vision allows for natural and vibrant colors.
Expressions currently come in eight colors including aqua, jade, green, gray, hazel, brown and blue topaz. These lenses are offered in a wide range of powers and sizes which accommodate the needs of the vast majority of contact lens users. They are approved for use of up to one week before changing. The price for Expressions runs between $35 and $60 per box depending upon where they are bought which is roughly 150% of the equivalent non-colored lens options and equal to the expense of durable colored lenses assuming a one year replacement cycle. However, we feel this is a small premium to pay for the privilege of improving upon what Mother Nature gave you in the way of eye color, and the enhanced self confidence Expressions lens can provide make them well worth the price.
