Where to buy mirrored contact lenses both wide diameter and normal size.
Looking for mirror tinted contacts?
You have two choices when it comes to mirror lenses, either sclera or normal size tinted soft lenses.
Sclera lenses are custom made theatrical lenses that cover the entire eye. They are visually stunning but
a) they are expensive as they are made to order and
b) they are thicker than the average soft contact lens so they can be uncomfortable to wear, especially if you have sensitive eyes.

Mirrored Contact lenses
Fashion mirror tinted contact lenses are available from many retailers online but be sure to get your eyes tested first either to check your current prescription or to confirm, if you don't normally wear contacts, that your eyes are suitable for lens wear.
If, for example, you have astigmatism where the eyeball has an irregular shape, you may not be able to wear sclera lenses.
You can buy mirror contacts at various online retailers but BEWARE. There are many illegal retailers selling inferior lenses which can harm your eyes. You MUST ensure you use a crazy lenses retailer that has full FDA approval, one like Crazy Lenses.
Prices vary from VERY cheap to over $100 PER lens. The difference is in the QUALITY of the lens.
Cosmetic mirrored contact lenses achieve their look by applying a tint to the outside of the lens which makes the lens thicker than the average soft contact lens. Cheaper fashion contacts use lower grade, thicker plastic compounds so people with sensitive eyes may find them uncomfortable; they are invariably produced in China and may not have been approved by the FDA as safe to wear.
The best range of Halloween and mirror-like lenses I have found online is from Crazy Lenses that has full FDA approval. Here are the best lenses I've found to offer a mirror effect:
At just $29.50 per lens pair, this lens covers the eye completely EXCEPT your pupil, whihc means you can see perfectly through them. As a mini sclera lens, they may take time to get used to, even if you are a regular contact lens wearer, so I recommend trying them out for a few days, before your Halloween party! They can be worn multiple times as they are not single use lenses.
Available from Lens.com they are fully FDA approved and can be shipped within a few days worldwide with great value delivery charges.
You can also look for silver color lenses which give a mirror effect, like those worn by Riddick, due to their color. These are more difficult to find, but take a look at these excellent value silver coated lenses which use FDA-approved dye, giving these mirrored contact lenses a realistic semi-reflective, silvery shine that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
One big question most people ask is whether they can see clearly through a mirror lens. The answer is YES - it's a bit like one of those two-way mirrors you see in the movies when a suspect is being interrogated at a police station - you can see others clearly but all the onlooker sees is your weird look!
But be careful of frosted white lenses - you CANNOT see through these and this is normally clearly stated in the description.
