Spook all your friends and enemies with scary Halloween eye contacts.
Halloween marks the start of the Holiday season all over the world and holding or going to a Halloween party means lots of dressing up.
If you want to create a truly scary look this year, then why not try a pair of weird and wacky crazy Halloween contact lenses?
Black Sclera lenses – perfect for Halloween
Choose from a multitude of different styles including spiral lenses for a hypnotic zombie look to dark red lenses to denote blood-filled eyes, just like Dracula!
Or maybe go for highly popular white-out or all-black lenses that are totally creepy.
The colored lenses in the picture to the left cover the entire visible part of the eye and are known as Sclera contact lenses, most popular in the theatrical and movie world. They do cost a lot more than simpler scary Halloween eye contacts which only cover the iris (colored part of the eye), but people will literally stop and stare.
Zombie white-out contact lenses are perfect for the highly popular zombie look and need little more in terms of a fancy dress outfit than a touch of red face-paint and some scruffy tattered clothes; the more rips in them the better!
As zombies are pretty much brain-dead, white-out or black-out lenses create that oblivious-of anything vacant look as well as being scary. If you wear soft contact lenses for perfect vision then there are lots of crazy lenses in prescription form made by FDA-approved reputable contact lens companies like Marietta Vision, supplied by AC Lens, my tried and trusted online contact lens source.
There are also, worringly, many companies offering cheap Halloween contact lenses online from as little as $20 per pair. Very few, if any, have been approved by the FDA so be wary of what you may think is a bargain – the lenses are likely to be thicker and made of cheap non-breathable plastic so dry eye contact lens sufferers beware.
While it is perfectly safe for someone who does not need lenses for vision correction to wear Halloween eye contacts, most people don't realize that you still need to visit an optician to have your eyes tested first.
So when shopping online, always beware of sites that don't ask for any form of prescription (to prove you have seen an eye doctor even if you DO have perfect vision) - chances are they are selling cheap lenses made in China as opposed to contacts approved by the FDA that will not harm the eyes; approved lenses will also be more comfortable as they are thinner and easier to insert and remove.
