Designed to add dimension, depth, and diameter to peepers, coloured contact lenses have grown to be a mainstay within the beauty realm—all of which are readily available in a multitude of hues and fits that help address specific needs. A quick visit to any optical shop verifies this: the coloured contact lenses of today are a far cry from the variants of yesteryear whose primary function was to grant users with clear vision. Today, they serve a cosmetic purpose as much as they do a practical one; a philosophy embodied by leading contact lens conglomerate, T-Garden.
Established in Tokyo in 2004, T-Garden harbours an impressive number of notable contact lens labels under their belt There’s FLANMY and Angelcolor Bambi, to name a few—with the former being a top-selling brand in Japan—as well as loveil, CRUUM, melotte, Cheritta, and more. Lauded for its highly-moisturising qualities as well as for its sheer diversity in shade range, there remains no doubt that the convoy of brands under the T-Garden umbrella serve as the paradigm of quality and craftsmanship.
