    As a matter of fact, colored contact lenses are quite different from clear ones. As you know, the former one has one more function, making people's eyes more attractive than before. But, there are also some side effects of the colored contacts. It is reported that by wearing them, you would be more likely to get infected, even give rise to parasite, this is true! Also, it will cause damage to your eyes, red eyes, etc. So, just wear clear contacts is enough.

    Yeah, the common clear contact lenses will help see things clearly with prescription, like the eyeglasses. And the colored contact lenses also have this function. But the difference is its inner material. With the days you wear increasing, the colored contact lenses may fade which will harm your retina. I just suggest you to wear the clean contact lenses.

    The clear contact lenses are more suitable for your situation. There are two main categories of contact lenses that are corrective contact lenses and non-corrective contact lenses. In general, the clear contact lenses are prescritpion contact lenses, and color contact lenses are cosmetic contact lenses. That is to say, clear contact lenses can deal with some eye problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness. In your case, you need glasses to help you improve your vision to see objects clear. However, color contact lenses have no function of correcting eye vision thus they are useless for you.
