Change Your Eye Color with Colored Contact Lenses for Halloween or Every Day

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, a time when you can dress up like your alter ego, or be someone completely new! It’s a day (or weekend full of celebrations!) when you can totally change your look, or try on a new personality. Why not start with your peepers? After all cosmetic colored contact lenses aren’t just for the movies anymore! You can get cool cat eye colors, complete white out lenses for a creepy, zombie-esque look, or lenses that let you look like your favorite anime character.

The great thing about colored contacts? You can totally change your look for the Halloween festivities in the blink of an eye! But colored contacts aren’t just for the holidays (although they’re a great time to try them out!) Colored contact lenses for everyday wear let you rock the eye color you wish you were born with. You can even match your eye color to your OOTD!

Cohen’s Fashion Optical has a beautiful palette of colored prescription contacts, and also offers cosmetic colored lenses that are perfect for dressing up your eyes. If you want to try a crazy design or color, Cohen’s contact lens experts can help you find the perfect pair just in time for your monster bash! If you’re looking for colored contact lenses for everyday wear, Cohen’s can usually have your order of a month supply within 24 hours.

Colored contacts are available in both prescription and non prescription, in case you don’t need vision correction but still want to change your eye color. For those of you who do need prescription contact lenses, Cohen’s offers Alcon’s Air Optix® Colors and FreshLook® COLORBLENDS collections of contact lenses. Air Optix® Colors, both collections are available in subtle to vibrant colors in hues like Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green and Honey. Their 3-in-one color technology enhances any eye color for a natural, beautiful look (so one needs to know!). Cohen’s EyeStylists can help you find a color that looks best on you, from sheer tints that enhance your natural eye color, or more dramatic, opaque color that completely changes your eye color!
Colored contact lenses should be cared for in the same way as regular clear contact lenses. If you’re a first time wearer, Cohen’s contact lens experts will walk you through the process! Remember, it’s important to be fitted for contact lenses by an expert.

If you are getting a pair of crazy colored or patterned lenses to top off your Halloween costume, remember – these temporary lenses are just for fun! There are a lot of cosmetic contact lenses available online, but they may not be FDA approved if the vendor is unlicensed. And just like any pair of contact lenses, make sure you take care of your colored contact lenses properly so you don’t run the risk of infection from bacteria that can build up on the lenses.

If you wear eyeglasses, you’ll need a different prescription for contact lenses, so you’ll need to have an eye exam (remember, you should have an annual comprehensive exam, so it’s worth it even if you’re just looking for cosmetic lenses!)
