Halloween is right around the corner, a time when we all get to dress up as our favourite characters from film, TV and fairy tales. One way to really bring your costume to life is coloured contact lenses.

You won’t need to wear glasses with your costume either (unless you want to) as prescription Halloween coloured contact lenses are also available. Have a look at how you can buy the best contact lenses for Halloween and avoid any mishaps.

Buy your contact lenses from a reputable supplier

There are many places you can buy coloured contact lenses from, such as tattoo parlours, costume shops, market stalls and beauty shops, particularly around Halloween. Buying from these places could put you at risk of getting an eye infection, as these sellers often don’t ensure the lenses are put through the necessary safety tests. You should always buy your contact lenses from companies that are supervised by a registered optician.

A lot of people have bought contact lenses from such places and reported itching, discomfort, and the feeling of something being in their eye (ironically, there literally is something in your eye when you’re wearing contact lenses, but you shouldn’t feel that it’s there!). Coloured contact lenses are safe to use if the lens is properly fitted to your eye, make sure you get the correct fit by getting a prescription before purchasing (even if you don’t require vision correction).

Stick to well-known brands

With a wide range of subtle and more opaque coloured lenses available, Feel Good Contacts stock prescription and non-prescription coloured contact lenses from trusted manufacturers, designed to complement any Halloween look.

FreshLook, Air Optix, Expressions are all excellent and well-known brands of coloured contact lenses. For a more affordable option, comfi are high-quality, comfortable lenses that are available in both multi-colour and single colour options. For something more subtle, FreshLook Illuminate will help to add definition and give the appearance of brighter, bigger eyes. These are brilliant if you wish to simply add more depth to your eyes as opposed to a colour change.

Don’t buy cheap lenses to save money

You should be weary of market stalls and shops that can’t prove their lenses were approved by an optician. These types of establishments don’t sell contact lenses that have not met the same safety standards as reputable sellers. Feel Good Contacts offer the best prices on all your coloured contact lenses for Halloween as compared to other online contact lens retailers. If you find your Halloween contacts cheaper at one of our competitors, we will match the price and refund you the difference.

Halloween contact lens safety tips

  1. Always wash your hands and make sure they are completely dry before inserting or removing your lenses (make sure you dry them with a towel that doesn’t shed, or you risk those fibres being transferred to your eye)
  2. Remove your lenses before you remove your make-up
  3. Don’t rub your eyes whilst wearing lenses
  4. If your lenses can be used multiple times, make sure the lenses are stored in a clean lens case filled with fresh solution (never top up old solution with new)
  5. Don’t reuse your daily disposable lenses
  6. If you experience any pain, redness, or discomfort during wear, remove and discontinue use
  7. Don’t sleep in your lenses, and only wear for the recommended time
  8. Never swim or shower with your contact lenses in

Practice good hand hygiene

When applying and removing your contact lenses, you must always do so with clean and dry hands. Before inserting or removing your lenses, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry them with a lint-free towel. For more information, you can read our full guide on how to insert and remove your contact lenses.

Store your lenses properly
