Save 20% on Halloween Contact Lenses at Vision Direct Being a vampire for a night is a lot of fun for Halloween. Along with the right costume and the right makeup, special vampire lenses are essential to pull off the scare. These colored contacts give your Halloween look the perfect finishing touch for a night of spooky fun.

You do need to decide what kind of vampire you want to be before choosing contacts. Vampire lenses come in a whole range of effects. The movie vampire look is easy to replicate with Twilight or New Moon-inspired contacts along with a costume from the movie.

For Halloween night, start with the costume and then move to colored contacts and finally the makeup. Putting on the contacts before the makeup prevents transferring oily or powdery residue on your lenses. If you wear glasses, make sure to get corrective contacts for the night. For first-time lens usage, read some basic lens care and precautions before putting them on. Some simple rules to follow are: wash your hands with mild soap before handling the lenses. Use lens solution to rinse and store the contacts. Gently slide the lens from the case onto your palm for putting it on. It’s a good idea to put on your costume, contacts and makeup before the Halloween party. This way you can improve on your look and you can gauge your comfort level with the whole costume.

Besides the retro horror movie look, you can also go for a more radical ‘otherworldly’ feel. Vampire lenses in red or scary effects like jagged teeth are perfect. Another idea is sclera lenses that cover the entire eye to give you intense bottomless eyes. You can use eye makeup to draw creepy facial tattoos to match the frightening eyes. Use gel or liquid makeup as loose powder can fall on your contacts causing eye irritation. It’s important to try on your vampire look before the big day so get your contacts well in advance before Halloween.

Remember, you’ll need a prescription from your eye doctor before buying any contact lens. So, update your prescription and go for it.

I want to wear Contact Lenses but my doctor says I have an astigmatism. What is that anyway?

Astigmatism is a very common vision condition that causes blurred vision mainly due to the way your cornea is shaped. It prevents light from focusing on your retina, causing the images you see to be blurred.

Many people with astigmatism feel that they cannot wear contact lenses because of this and nothing could be farther from the truth. Contact Lens manufacturers make “toric” lenses, which are especially made for people with astigmatism. These soft, disposable lenses have tiny weights in the lens that are shaped to help you focus and see better.

There are many lenses to choose from, depending on your lifestyle. Acuvue has a weekly disposable lens called Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism that you use daily for 2 weeks and start a new pair when you throw the old ones out.

If you’re not interested in cleaning and disinfecting your lenses daily, you can opt for Focus Dailies Toric. They come in either a 30 day box or a 90 day box for each eye. There is no maintenance with these lenses, you simply throw them out at the end of the day and start a fresh pair every morning.

Speak to your eye care professional on which lenses will work best for your prescription and lifestyle. Most locations will give you a trial pair with your eye exam so you can test the comfort and vision before making a purchase.
