Do colored contacts make your pupils small?
As light decreases, your pupils get bigger to try and take in more light. Colored contacts only have so much room to allow your pupil to expand. The transparent center of the lens can only be so big. Your pupil will continue to expand, but your vision will be blocked by the colored portion of the contact.
