Apart from the regular lenses which are used for correcting the vision, there are few cosmetic lenses which are used to look different and to have fun in different occasions.

Visibility tint lenses: These lenses are designed by imparting some tint to the natural lenses and they are helpful in enhancing the look of your eyes. Even though there is some color on these lenses they will not affect the color of your eyes. The tint is used to find the lenses if we drop them accidentally.

Enhancement tint: Enhancement lenses will enhance your eye color. They have a translucent tint which is the reason for the enhancement of the eye color. These lenses are slightly darker than the visibility tint lenses.
Color tint lenses: These lenses are the ones which are used to give complete color change for your eye.
