Thread: Novelty Contact Lenses.

  1. #1

    Default Novelty Contact Lenses.

    Hi Guys,

    For Halloween I was planning on being a vampire and was going to buy some novelty contact lenses to freak people out.

    I was going to buy the Blood Red TerrorEyes from here, do you think they'd be the best colour for a vampire(ss?)
    I like the wolf eyes and the zombie white out ones too!

    The thing is though, I have quite dark eyes, they're brown. Do you think the red would still work well on them and stand out?

    My dad and a friend were telling me they were dangerous and I was stupid for wanting to wear them for one day. Has anyone ever had any problem with theirs?

    My mum says I'll probably manage to get them in, but not out again *raises eyebrow* because apparently it's not as easy as it looks. Fair enough, I don't wear contacts (or glasses) and I know it's going to take some practice but I'm pretty sure they'll be easy enough to get out?? I mean how many people do you see walking around with a novelty contact stuck in their eye??

    OK went on a bit of a ramble there. But any help would be great, thanks.

    Oh and if you've got any cool novelty contact pics.. I'd love to see pics!

    Also do you think they're worth the money? I think I'll only have the oppertunity to wear mine a couple of times.

    I'm sure they'll be fine. I think they're hard contact lenses, I've worn soft ones for years daily and now occasionally, caused me no problems. As long as you're ok with touching your eyes you'll be fine.

    You could get plain black ones, cold dead eyes are pretty creepy.

    Yeah, if you've never worn contacts before they can be irritating. I have tons of contact lense solution, but you may just have to drip water in your eyes or something lol.

    don't do water! there's something in it that can make you go blind. that's why you wash the lenses with solution not water.

    i'm not sure how comfy they'd be as normal contacts are all slightly different to fit the shape of your eye. i wouldn't wear them more than once either as they don't seem to stay very clean.

    When I've woken up in the morning with my contacts still in and no solution, I've put a drop of water in each eye to hydrate them and they were fine. I'm not blind, it won't make you go blind instantly, it's just risk of germs or whatever. I wear vision-correcting ones though, may be diff for cosmetic ones.

    Drip the solution into your eyes, place one on the tip of your finger then put some solution into it. The pull apart yor eyelids with you thumb and forefinger and place it on and carefully blink a few times.

    Toget out sort of drag it down to the bottom of your eye and it'll crease up so you can pinch it out.

    I do this everyday lol

    You shouldn't use water cause theres a type of protein in it and it can build up on your lenses and irritate your eyes.

    I've fell asleep with mine in and no solution too. I've never seen redder eyes in my life!

    the reason the cosmetic ones aren't as safe as prescription contacts is because they're all just one size whereas prescription contacts are made to fit your eye, I asked the optician about them once trying to convince my mom to let me have some when i was like 14 and they recommended against it

    can't see them doing any harm for just occasional wear though
