If you’re thinking about getting colored contacts for cosmetic purposes, then you’ve come to the right place. Non-prescription color contacts by Aloha Contacts are a great option for those who want and eye color change but don’t require vision correction.
Triple and Dual Color Contact Lenses
Aloha Contacts are different because they offer a wide range of options for non-prescription colored contacts. What they’re known for, however, are their Triple Color and Dual Color lenses. Triple Color non-prescription color contacts have a dark outer ring that highlights the eye, a vibrant color for the iris, and a slightly lighter color around the pupil. Dual Color lenses are the same design minus the third, lighter color in the inner eye. Both lenses are designed to be vibrant yet natural looking. Choose these lenses if you love being the center of attention.
Note: the most popular color is Triple Color Blue, followed by Triple Color Gray!
However, your new eye color can only do so much on its own. For best results use eye makeup and fashion accessories that flatter your hair color and skin tone as well as your new non-prescription color contacts. Remember to always put your contacts in first, and then put on your eye makeup.
A Warning about Non-Prescription Lenses
While the term non-prescription is widely used, it is somewhat misleading. Aloha uses the term non-prescription to mean cosmetic lens, or color contacts that change your natural eye color without altering the way you see the world at large. Another term for these lenses is Plano, which is equal to “0.00 power”. People also refer to these type of lenses as cosmetic or fashion lenses.
Because Aloha is not a company based in the United States, they are not bound by American laws that require a prescription for lenses. However, a prescription is still required for consumers in the United States and widely recommended because the best way to be fitted properly is through an examination by an eye care professional. Wearing ill-fitting contacts, even non-prescription color contacts, can cause infections, damage the cornea, or other serious vision problems.
How do I care for Aloha contacts?
Aloha contacts are good for about 90 days from when they are first taken out of their original packaging. Because they have no effect on vision, you can wear them with your regular glasses or even sunglasses.
Prior to opening the packaging that contains your new non-prescription colored contacts from Aloha, the lenses are sterile. Always wash and dry your hands before handling your contacts. Even if your hands look clean, natural oils in your skin could encourage infection-causing bacteria. Here are the steps for inserting your lenses.
- Look for tears or other damage to the non-prescription colored contacts before opening them by looking at them through the bottom of the blister package. If you do see a problem, don’t open them but instead email Aloha’s customer support team.
- Shake the case gently. This lubricates the contact which helps you insert it easier. Then, while the case is on a flat surface, open it while looking to make sure that the contact is not stuck to the foil lid. Because they come in a sterile solution, there’s no reason to wait before wearing them!
- Take the contact from the packaging with your fingertip. Don’t let our fingernail touch the lens because that’s one of the primary ways that tears happen!
- While the contact is still on your index finger, use the fingers on your other hand to pull your eyelid down and insert the contact. Blink a few times to help the lens center itself on your eye.
When it’s time to remove your non-prescription color contacts, again wash and dry your hands first. After removing the lens, put it in the case with fresh solution immediately to avoid tearing or getting the lens dirty. You need to keep your contacts clean with saline solution because keeping your contacts clean is the number one way for contact lens wearers to promote good eye health.

How do I get a prescription?
