Special effect contact lenses allow you to change your eye color and even the shape of the pupil. You can get glow in the dark lenses, cat-eye or snake-eye pupils, or you can make your zombie outfit really scream with white-out lenses that look like heavy cataracts.

Safety tips for wearing special effect contact lenses

1. Wash your hands with warm water and soap before handling your lenses.

2. Cut your fingernails and keep them clean so you don't scratch your eye or the lenses.

3. Store the contact lenses in a contact lens solution. Don't try to make your own, because it might not be sterile or cause damage to your eyes.

4. Use the storage container that comes with your contact lens solution. Keep it open when you're wearing the lenses.

5. Change the contact lens solution every time you wear your lenses.

6. Discard the lenses after the expiration date

7. Don't share your lenses with anyone, because you can pass bacteria back and forth and get an eye infection. Trust me, pink eye is no fun.

Scary, but awesome Halloween ideas. I would really like to stare in the eyes of someone wearing weird teeth or Zombie contact lenses on Halloween night.

It really is freaky! its the kind of stuff costume designers use on movie sets. I'm going to get some for Halloween this year. Lots of people like to do funny costumes, but for some reason I just love doing something scary looking. Thanks for the comment.
