Cosmetic Colored Contacts - Special Effects Lenses

Jun 8, 2008
People often want to reinvent themselves and change the way they look and ultimately how others see them. Some will take drastic steps to achieve this but most will change only a few things about themselves and leave it at that. Today, people even have the option of changing the color of their eyes with cosmetic colored contacts. Unlike prescription contact lenses, cosmetic colored contacts can be worn by nearly everybody and are available in a wide variety of colors and styles. So whether you want to create that special look for that special occasion or just feel that you would look better with blue eyes, these contact lenses could be the thing for you.

Unless you have worked in either the movie or theater industry, chances are that you would not have been accustomed to cosmetic colored contacts in previous years. These lenses were primarily used as special effects tools in most movies involving creatures of the dark like zombies, vampires etc... Today, these same contact lenses are available to the public and are used for anything from a Halloween party to someone just wanting to change the color of their eyes.

Cosmetic Colored Contacts For Every Occasion

Due to their popularity, special effects contacts are mass produced or if you really need to, they can even be custom made. Just expect to pay quite a lot more for the custom made ones. They come in a wide variety and more often that not are directly associated to a particular character from a movie. Movies like The Lost Boys have helped make these lenses what they are today.

Today, you can also use generically mass produced cosmetic colored contacts to completely change your eyes. It is even possible to change your eyes to looking like cats', snakes' or even wolves' eyes without affecting your normal vision.

For a bolder statement, you could even get special effects contacts that will give you the zombie or blind eye look. These lenses will give the impression that your eyes have been covered with a solid white milky substance and are really life like. The only draw back with these types of lenses is that you cannot actually see through them and therefore most people would rather only wear one lens in order to still be able to move around.

Fire eye contacts give them impression that the eyes are red or engulfed in flames whereas black sclera contacts look like your entire eye has been filled with black oil and are completely motionless. If you want your eyes look like mirrors, then mirrored eye contacts are the way to go and hemorrhaged eye contacts will make your eyes appear like you have just had a very heavy night on the town.

You can even find cosmetic colored contacts that will make your pupils look larger that what they really are and who can forget the glow in the dark lenses.

Whatever the occasion, purpose or just a simple change, you can rest assured that there are cosmetic colored lenses that will fit any situation. However, it is important to note that although you might not have a vision problem, you will still need to get a prescription from a qualified eye doctor to get cosmetic colored contacts
