Using colour contact lenses

Q: Is wearing colour contact lenses permissible? Please mention all scenarios. If a person usually wears glasses now is wearing contacts with the eye colour changing, vs if he doesn't and is just wearing it to change the look of his eyes?

A: Colour contacts should be worn for the spouse only or when there is a genuine need, not to show off or deceive.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
