If you are looking for the perfect finishing touch to your Halloween costume then you might want to try a pair of Halloween contact lenses. These special colored lenses have been used by the film industry to create a non-human appearance. Now Halloween contact lenses are more widely available for people to wear to their parties or when taking their kids trick or treating. The variety of Halloween contact lenses is huge. You can transform your eyes into those of a wild animal to match your werewolf costume, bloodshot to give your Vampire a more ghoulish quality, or simply change the color of your eyes into an unearthly shade of red. The choice is yours. The prices vary depending on the amount of detail involved, but a pair can start under $100. The top of the range Halloween contact lenses are those that are hand painted and have vision correction. You can expect to pay over $400 for a pair of these. Your costume is bound to create a stir at the Halloween party if you are wearing Halloween contact lenses.
There are different types of contact lenses, just as with normal lenses. The oldest type of lenses is hard ones, but these are not to be worn for long periods of time because they prevent the cornea from getting the oxygen it needs. Gas Permeable (GP) or Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Halloween contact lenses allow oxygen to reach the cornea because they are made of a breathable plastic. These are actually custom fit to the individual shape of the cornea. This makes them comfortable to wear but does make them one of the most expensive types of Halloween contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are the most comfortable type of Halloween contact lenses and they are best for your eyes.
As with any type if contact lenses it is essential that you know how to put your Halloween contact lenses on properly. If these are the first contact lenses you have tried to use then there are a few points that you need to follow to prevent damaging your Halloween contact lenses or, more importantly, your eyes
" Always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before you start
" Ensure that your Halloween contact lenses are dirt-free, moist and in perfect condition
" Put one of the Halloween contact lenses on the tip of your finger using whichever hand is most comfortable first
" Pull down the bottom eyelid lid of the eye that the Halloween contact lens is for
" Use your other hand to hold the top eyelid wide open
" Focus your eyes on the Halloween contact lens and position the lens in the centre of your eye
" Slowly release your eyelids
Halloween contact lenses, especially hard ones, are not designed to be worn for long periods of time. It is essential that you do not keep them in too long or your eyes can become dry. Dryness is one of the main problems caused by Halloween contact lenses. If you have naturally dry eyes, it is worth using eye drops to make wearing your Halloween contact lenses more comfortable.
