Theatrical and special effect contact lenses always add the finishing touch to your Halloween costume. And their versatility is unmatched. From clubs to parties, novelty contact lenses are a wild accessory to your wardrobe - these lenses offer you a chance to really make a statement.

Overview

Halloween contact lenses are also known as decorative contacts, costume contacts, novelty contacts, and special effect contacts. People use these contacts to elevate the look of their costumes on Halloween. Actors and actresses also use these contact lenses when playing vampires, werewolves, zombies, and other similar characters in movies and television shows.

Most Halloween contact lenses are purely cosmetic (Plano), which means they won't correct your vision. The FDA considers these types of contact lenses as medical devices just the same, so you'll still need a valid prescription from your eye care professional (ECP) if you plan on buying a pair.

Buying Halloween contacts online

You can buy cheap Halloween contacts from e-commerce contact lens sites, brick-and-mortar stores, and even at the offices of some ECPs.

However, shopping for Halloween contact lenses online is your best option. Here are three reasons why:

1) Affordability

Online contact lens retailers offer contacts at much lower prices than brick-and-mortar stores and ECPs. If you don't want to spend too much money on contacts you'll only use once or twice, then buying online is the way to go.

2) Variety

Online contact lens retailers often have a bigger selection of Halloween contacts compared to brick-and-mortar stores and ECPs' offices. If you're looking for specific Halloween contacts that you can't find in any store, chances are you can find them online.

3) Convenience

Why spend time and effort going from store to store when you can buy the right contact lenses from the comfort of your home. You can even get a valid prescription by taking an online vision test. You can then place your order, send a copy of the prescription to the website, and they'll ship your contact lenses to you. Simple, right?

Can you wear eyeglasses over Halloween contacts?

Yes, it's perfectly okay to wear prescription eyeglasses over Halloween contacts. Halloween contacts are Plano, which means they provide no vision correction.

Is it safe to wear Halloween contacts?

Generally speaking, Halloween contacts are safe to wear. As long as you purchase FDA-approved Halloween contacts from a legitimate retailer, you don't have to worry about any eye issues.

However, even if Halloween contacts are purely cosmetic, they are still considered medical devices. To ensure the health and safety of your eyes, make sure to follow proper contact lens care protocols.

On that note, if you are planning to wear any kind of special effect contact lens this Halloween, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Wash your hands

Always wash and dry your hands before touching your eyes or your contact lenses. Start by wetting your hands with running water, then apply a mild soap. Rub your hands for at least 20 seconds before rinsing. Dry your hands thoroughly with a lint-free towel or fresh paper towels.

  • Put in your contacts before applying makeup

If you're putting on makeup as part of your Halloween costume, make sure to put in your contact lenses first. This way, you don't risk transferring makeup residue from your hands to your contacts. Much like dirt, germs, and other debris, makeup residue can irritate your eyes and potentially cause an infection.

  • Take out your contacts before removing your makeup

Removing makeup often requires the use of a liquid makeup remover. However, applying makeup remover to your face while wearing contacts may result in the makeup remover getting onto your contacts and staining or damaging them. To avoid this, simply take out your contacts before applying makeup remover to your face.

  • Only purchase FDA-approved contacts

Halloween contacts are still considered medical devices, so make sure you're buying only FDA-approved Halloween contacts. Buying cheap knockoff lenses may save you money initially, but they will only cause problems in the long run. To avoid any unnecessary risks, buy FDA-approved Halloween contacts from a legitimate retailer.

More Frequently Asked Questions on Halloween Contacts

  • What are scleral lenses?

Scleral lenses are novelty lenses that cover the sclera (the white part of the eye) and the pupil. They can create some truly scary effects. For instance, sclera lenses create the all-black effect of zombie eyes and the all-blue effect of the Fremen from the movie Dune.

  • How long do Halloween contacts last?

With proper care and cleaning, Halloween contacts should last one year. Just make sure you have received adequate instruction from your ECP on how to properly clean and care for your contacts.

  • What information will I need to provide so I can order Halloween or novelty contact lenses?

Whether or not you're getting Plano (no correction) contacts, you will need a valid contact lens prescription to buy them. At Lens.com, you can either send us a copy of your prescription or provide us with your ECP's name and contact information so we can verify your prescription.

  • How long will it take to get my novelty contacts from Lens.com?

If you choose standard delivery, you can expect your order to arrive roughly seven to nine business days from the date of order. To ensure timely delivery, we recommend placing an order early.

  • Are there Halloween contacts that correct astigmatism?

Unfortunately, Halloween contacts are not available in toric parameters. However, most people with astigmatism can still wear Halloween contacts for a short time, such as when attending a party. You can also talk to your ECP to determine which non-toric prescription will provide you with the best vision.

  • Are novelty contact lenses suitable for use while driving?

No, novelty contacts are not suitable for use while operating a motor vehicle or any machinery requiring optimal visual acuity for safety.

Conclusion

Costume contact lenses or novelty contact lenses are a great way to spice up your look this coming Halloween. If it's your first time considering wearing Halloween contact lenses, just remember that you still need a valid prescription to be able to purchase them. You don't need to worry about the health of your eyes as long as you buy FDA-approved contact lenses and practice proper contact lens care and safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am concerned about the health of wearing Novelty lenses. Are they safe?

Yes they are if they are used correctly and cared for according to the manufacturer's instructions. Unlike 'Flea market' lenses, all Novelty (Halloween, Special Effect, FX, Theatrical) contact lenses sold by Lens.com are approved by the FDA.

What are scleral lenses?

The white part of your eye is called the sclera. Scleral Novelty contact lenses cover the white (sclera) part of the eye as well as the pupil. This can create some very scary effects. Scleral lenses create the all black effect of zombies and the all blue effect of the Fremen from the movie Dune.

I wear eyeglasses. Can I wear Novelty contact lenses?

Absolutely, as long as your eye care provider writes you a prescription. The Novelty contact lenses come in plano (no correction) and you just wear them behind your eyeglasses. You will still need to care for them so be sure to ask for care and cleaning instructions.

I wear eyeglasses. Can I use my eyeglass prescription to buy Novelty contact lenses?

Unfortunately no. The prescription for your eyeglasses will not work for contact lenses. You will need to get a contact lens prescription from your eye care provider. While you're ther, you might as well try regular contact lenses too!

Are these the same type of contact lenses used in the movies to create special effects?

Yes. As you can see from the wide selection of movie-themed Novelty contact lenses, you can look like Darth Vader, Darth Maul, a Vampire, the living dead or a Happy Leprechaun.

Can I order more than one design of Novelty contact lenses with my prescription?

Yes you can. The prescription is for the type of lens not the design. You can order as many as you like for many different looks.

Will a prescription be required to place an order for Novelty Contact Lenses?

We are required to verify your prescription if you live in the United States or if you are having your lenses delivered to an address in the United States.

I have astigmatism. Will I be able to wear Novelty lenses?

Novelty lenses are not available in toric parameters however most patients can wear Novelty Contact Lenses for a short time, such as while attending a party. You can check with your eye care provider to determine which non-toric prescription will provide you with the best vision.

Note: We recommend you avoid Novelty Contact Lenses which require a specific orientation on the eye for the effect to be achieved. For example 'Banshee' is oriented straight up and down. If you have astigmatism the pattern will be out of alignment and will look funny, not scary! We recommend a lens such as 'Vader', where there is no orientation, or a scleral lens which will not rotate.

Can I get Novelty lenses in my prescription?

You will need to check the specific lens design for available parameters. Some novelty lenses are hand painted, others are machine made. The hand painted lenses are only available without correction. Most of the other Novelty designs carried by Lens.com are available in a wide variety of powers.

Note: As we get closer to Halloween the selection of Novelty lenses and available powers will decrease, so we recommend you order early.

What is the accepted wearing time for Novelty contact lenses?

Novelty contact lenses should only be worn for a maximum of 8 hours at a time and never overnight.

How often can I wear my Novelty Contact Lenses?

I Have a contact lens prescription already - can I use it to order my Novelty lenses?

No. All contact lenses are different. You will need a new prescription to order Novelty (Halloween, Special Effect, FX, Theatrical) Contact Lenses.

Are novelty contact lenses approved for extended or overnight wear?

Absolutely not. The materials in Novelty contact lenses are approved only for short-term wear (less than 8 hours). You will increase the risk of damage to your eyes if you do not follow your eye care professional's wearing instructions.

No they are not suitable for use while operating a motor vehicle or any other machinery requiring good vision for safety. They will distort your vision and interfere with peripheral vision. Your best approach is to take your lenses and solution with you and insert your lenses when you reach your destination or when it is safe to do so.

My friends and family members want to try on my Novelty lenses. Is that safe to do?

Absolutely not. Severe eye infections can be spread from one person to another when sharing contact lenses. In addition, contact lenses must be fit correctly by an eye care practitioner to avoid other complications. Recommend they order their own Novelty contact lenses from Lens.com, we'll be glad to assist.

Can novelty contact lenses be worn by everyone?

Unfortunately not everyone can be successfully fit in contact lenses. If you have successfully worn regular soft contact lenses or RGP lenses, the odds are pretty good you'll be able to scare your friends this Halloween with Novelty (Halloween, Special Effect, FX, Theatrical) contact lenses from Lens.com.

Will my normal eye color be visible through the contact lens?

Not likely, however Novelty Contact Lenses will tend to appear different from person to person depending on their underlying eye and sclera (white of the eye)color.
