About Brown Hazel Contact Lenses Contacts

Change up your look whenever and whichever way you want with our collection of colored contacts that come in different shades of brown.

Why do people wear brown contact lenses?

People who wear brown contact lenses wear them to either change their eye color to achieve a certain look or to highlight the natural beauty of their brown eyes. If you have light-colored eyes, wearing brown contacts can give you an entirely new look that's impossible to go unnoticed. If you have dark brown eyes, wearing contact lenses that are a lighter shade of brown, such as hazel, can really liven up your eyes.

Features of Brown Contact Lenses

Brown contact lenses may either be opaque for a more dramatic effect or translucent for a subtler one. Wear opaque brown contacts if you want to completely cover up your actual eye color and translucent ones if you only want to define or naturally enhance your brown eyes.

Most brown contacts available on the market today are made of a silicone hydrogel lens material, which allows oxygen to pass through the lens to the surface of the eye. Your eyes need oxygen to stay moist, clear, and healthy. 

Some brown contacts are made of a hydrogel lens material, which can hold more water than silicone hydrogel. Thanks to their high water content, hydrogel contacts are able to provide lasting comfort, especially for contact lens wearers with dry or sensitive eyes.

Most brown contacts also come in different prescription strengths for people who want to achieve a certain look without sacrificing their vision. Brown contacts are also available as zero prescription lenses for people without vision problems.

Brown contact lenses also come in different modalities. If you don’t want the hassle of a lens care routine, opt for daily disposable lenses, like FreshLook One-Day. These contacts are meant to be worn for only one day. Remove and discard them at the end of the day, then wear a fresh pair of contacts in the morning. If you want to wear brown contacts for weeks at a time, wear a weekly lens like FreshLook ColorBlends or a monthly one like Air Optix Colors. Use whichever works best for your needs.

Popular Brown Contact Lenses

There are several popular brands of colored contacts that come in different shades of brown, such as Air Optix Colors and FreshLook ColorBlends. When choosing which brown contact lens to wear, keep in mind that the best one for you will depend on the kind of look you want to achieve.

For instance, if you already have brown eyes and you simply want to give them definition, wear brown contacts that define your iris and deepen your eye color. Air Optix Colors by Alcon are a good choice if you want to only subtly enhance your brown eyes. These lenses come in a rich “Brown” shade to darken light brown eyes and a lighter “Hazel” shade to add definition to dark brown eyes.

If you have blue or green eyes and you want to switch to brown, try opaque contacts like FreshLook ColorBlends by Alcon. They come in “Brown,” “Pure Hazel,” and “Honey,” among other vibrant colors. They’re also very comfortable because they’re made of a hydrogel lens material with a high water content (55%). With FreshLook ColorBlends, you get to showcase your rich, brown eyes and enjoy all-day comfort.

Alcon also offers FreshLook Dimensions for those who want vibrant yet natural-looking brown eyes. Despite the dramatic enhancement that the lenses create, they blend naturally with the eyes because their tint is translucent. With FreshLook Dimensions, no one would guess you're actually wearing contacts.

Another popular brand of colored contacts is Expressions Colors by CooperVision. They come in different colors, including two shades of brown. Opt for the darker “Brown” shade if you want to change your eye color and the lighter “Hazel” shade if you want to enhance your brown eyes.

How Much Are Brown Contact Lenses?

A box of six brown contact lenses typically costs about $65-95. If you replace your contacts every two weeks, you could be looking at an annual lens cost of $650-950. You might spend more than that if your eye care professional (ECP) recommends replacing your contacts more often. Likewise, if you replace your contacts less often, you’ll have a lower annual lens cost.

For many people, the ability to change or enhance their eye color is worth the added expense. That said, there is a way for you to get brown contact lenses for up to 70% cheaper than retail. By avoiding the overhead that brick-and-mortar stores have to pay and by purchasing contacts in bulk, retailers like are able to offer brown contacts at much lower prices. You can also rest assured that the brown contacts found on are from the same trusted brands that you’ll find in your ECP’s office or at your local stores.

How to Insert and Remove Brown Contact Lenses

Brown contact lenses are soft disposable lenses and as such, you should follow the standard procedure for that type of lens. Wash and dry your hands, then scoop your first lens out of the case with the index finger of your dominant hand. Rinse it with a multipurpose cleaning solution recommended by your ECP. Inspect the lens for any tears or debris. Using the middle finger of your dominant hand, pull down your lower eyelid. Stare straight ahead and gently place the lens on your eye. Blink a few times to center the lens. Repeat with the other lens.

To remove brown contact lenses, hold your eyelids open and gently pinch the lens between your index finger and thumb. Carefully lift the lens off of your eye. Repeat with the other lens.

Safety Tips for Colored Contacts

It’s perfectly okay to want to wear brown contact lenses to enhance or change your eye color. However, you should do it the right way to avoid injury, infection, or vision problems. For safe, colored contact lens wear, follow these tips:

  • Clean them daily. Daily cleaning of colored contacts is essential for safe lens wear. It’s important to clean your contact lens case daily, too. If you don’t want the hassle of a lens care routine, you could opt for daily disposable colored contacts.
  • Don't use tap water for cleaning. Tap water is generally safe for drinking but not for cleaning contacts. That’s because germs and contaminants in tap water can stick to your contacts. Instead, use a multipurpose cleaning solution recommended by your ECP.
  • Don't wear them when swimming or bathing. Contaminants in water can stick to your contacts if you wear them while bathing or swimming. To avoid contamination, remove your contacts before bathing or swimming. You can also try wearing swimming goggles.
  • Always handle your contacts with clean, dry hands. Before handling your contacts, wash your hands with mild soap and water and dry them using a clean, lint-free towel. Irritation or infections can occur if you handle your contacts with dirty hands.
  • Never share your contacts. Even if your colored contacts are not intended for vision correction, do not share them with friends or family members. Lending out your contacts may spread infection, damage the health of your eyes, and put your vision at risk.
  • Replace and dispose of your contacts as advised. To reduce your risk for eye injury or infection, be sure to replace and dispose of your contacts according to your ECP’s instructions.
