What are the similarities between Expressions Colors and FreshLook Colorblends
Expressions Colors and FreshLook Colorblends are both monthly disposable coloured contact lenses that provide a stylish colour update to your eyes. Both of these daily wear lenses must be replaced monthly. These lenses have almost identical water contents, both providing a hydrating lens wearing experience. Both of these lenses are available in prescription as well as zero prescription for cosmetic use. Both brands blend three different shades together for a natural and vibrant colour on the eyes.
What are the differences between Expressions Colors and FreshLook Colorblends?
Expressions have 1 lens per box and are available in a choice of 7 colours. FreshLook Colorblends have 2 lenses per box and have a wider colour selection, with 12 shades to choose from. Both of these lenses are excellent at keeping your eyes hydrated and comfortable throughout wear.
Which is better, Expressions Colors or FreshLook Colorblends?
Both of these lenses are similar in performance, comfort and wearing schedule. FreshLook has more colour options available which might make it a better option if you’re looking for a very specific colour. The Expressions lenses have a higher oxygen permeability, although both lenses are very comfortable and breathable throughout wear. Whether you require vision correction or not, both of these coloured lenses can be worn with or without prescription, making them perfect for everyday visual correction or just as a fashionable change to your eye colour.
Air Optix is a silicone hydrogel coloured lens, a great alternative to the Freshlook and the Expressions lenses. The more breathable material allows up to 6 times the amount of oxygen through the lens compared to standard hydrogel lenses, which is ideal for longer wear and less dry eye.
