Coloured Contact Lenses Buying Guide

Fancy dress and Halloween contact lenses

When it comes to things like fancy dress or Halloween, we know that you might be looking for some coloured or 'crazy' lenses to add the finishing touch to your costume. These are offered by some online retailers so if you thinking of buying some heres some things to consider to make sure you dont end up with eyes that look crazy all the time:

Don't buy your contact lenses from ‘just anywhere’. Look out for a well-known supplier and a brand you’re familiar with, and read a few brand reviews before you buy anything.

Never share your lenses or wear lenses someone else has worn before. Even if they have been cleaned.

How to care for contacts

Do I need a prescription?

All coloured contact lenses, including non-correcting (plano cosmetic) lenses, are optical appliances and require a presciption. Air Optix Colours can be purchased with a valid prescription for easyvision monthly Irisian or Air Optix Aqua lenses. If you want to try a different lens type, speak to your local store for advice.

Book an appointment

Most importantly

If you notice redness, discomfort, pain, watering eyes or anything else that makes you concerned, take the lenses out and keep them out. If things dont get better once you've got the lenses out contact your optometrist or visit Accident and Emergency if its outside business hours.
