Contact lenses that are slightly tinted are more visible and are therefore harder to lose. Contact lenses are rather small and can be quite slippery. It is not uncommon for contact lens wearers to drop a contact lens while handling the contacts. When this happens, contacts that are completely clear can be difficult to find. Tinted contact lenses, however, have a light blue or green tint to them which makes them more visible. The slight tint to these contacts is not enough to alter the color of the eye but it is enough to prevent the contacts from becoming easily lost.
