Every year at this time, people wonder about which special effect contacts are the best. We also know there are Halloween lens safety concerns.
Here’s what they had to say:
It’s a completely opaque contact and so it covers your eye color. All you can see is your pupil. The reason it’s popular is because it transcends a lot of different costumes, from zombies to vampires. You could put one in one eye and have the other black. You can really have a lot of different options with your costume with that lens.
Another really popular question that’s come up is for those who want to stay ahead of the costume curve this Halloween: What are some other styles that are really popular in Halloween contact lenses? There are three that come to mind: Vampire Blood, The Ring and Beserk. All of these lenses are great ways to replicate zombie or vampire costumes from shows like “The Walking Dead” or “Vampire Diaries.” Of course, we can’t forget “Twilight.” Edward.
For a more technical question, of course we’re asked are our Halloween contact lenses safe? The answer is 100% yes. They’re FDA approved theatrical grade lenses. Of course, if you have any questions regarding them, the material, the solution they’re stored in, you can give us a call at any time. You can, of course, always talk to your doctor about them.
You’re wondering, why do I need a doctor’s prescription? Even if you have 20/20 vision, unfortunately it’s just required by federal law. Everyone’s eyes are different. So we want to make sure they fit you perfectly. Once again, if you have any questions, we totally recommend you talk to your eye doctor or just give us a shout.
When you’re going to make a trip to your doctor’s office to get a prescription written for your Halloween contact lenses, it’s important to bring the right information. Instead of having to memorize all the technical jargon, we suggest you just print off the product page, or even better yet, pull up your iPhone, find it on our site, and show it to your eye doctor. You’ve got all the information right there.
Just picture it. You just spent two hours doing all of your Halloween makeup. You have your Halloween contact lenses in. You’re ready to go to your party, but now you’re wondering can I actually drive there with my Halloween contact lenses in? The answer is yes. Just keep in mind if you’re wearing the cataract lenses, which is a type of lens that actually covers your pupil, we highly recommend you do not drive with those in. By highly recommend, I mean don’t.
If you’re Mr. or Mrs. Popular this Halloween and have a multitude of parties to go to, you might be wondering, can I wear my lenses to each and every one of them? Well, the answer is probably. We recommend that you can wear them between six to eight hours at a time. Of course, if they’re at all feeling uncomfortable, we highly recommend that you take them out right away. You can always consult your eye doctor or of course give us a call.
Lastly, once you’re all Halloweened out, you might be wondering, do I have to actually throw away my lenses? Thankfully, the answer’s no. Halloween contact lenses can be stored up until a year. You just have to ensure that you store them in a proper contact lens case. Use the prescribed solution. Also keep in mind that a contact lens case should be replaced every three months.
That’s it for me. I hope that I’ve answered all of your questions. Of course, if you have any other spooktacular questions, always feel free to give us a call because we’re here for you.
