It’s been over a year since I’ve showed you some special effect lenses and today I’m back with some Black Contact Lenses ($28.95 USD) from Spooky Eyes. With Halloween just around the corner I wanted something I could wear with my costume, which I’m still undecided about, but these lenses will go with the few options I have floating around in my head.
Brand: Dream Eyes
Water content: 42%
Base curve: 8.6
Duration: 90 days opened – 4 years unopened
These cannot be made with a prescription.
The black in the contacts is fully opaque, which gives a great effect, but I have to mention that I can see the contacts (the black) at the outer edge of my vision. It’s not too much though and not distracting for me.
I just had to go get my subtle vampire teeth for these pictures, I couldn’t resist!
Trying to show vampire teeth and looking decent is tough, geez! Let’s look at some of my (failed) attemps, shall we? lol! 😛
I can feel these contacts for the initial 5-10 minutes, but after that I don’t feel them anymore. They do make my vision blurry a bit at first too, but once my eyes get used to having them in I can see fine. I have to say that I wore contacts for about 20 years until I had laser eye surgery 6 years ago so I’m used to having something in my eyes. Someone who has never worn contacts may feel them more since they’re not used to the feeling.
Have you tried special effect contacts before? You have to check out Spooky Eyes, they have so many to choose from!
