What are cosmetic lenses?
Cosmetic lenses are contact lenses used to change your eye colour and appearance. They are popular in the film industry for special effects, as well as makeup artists on TikTok enhancing their makeup look. Their sole purpose is to change the appearance of your eyes, without affecting or correcting your vision. cosmetic contact lenses are most popular around Halloween time, where many people get involved makeup trends on TikTok, YouTube and Instagram. The best way to impress at a Halloween party is a pop of colour in your eyes matching your cheeky devil or gruelling zombie costume.
Are cosmetic contact lenses the same as prescription lenses?
Prescription contact lenses are designed to help with your vision, they allow oxygen to reach the surface of your eye so they don’t dry out and you can regularly use them without any discomfort. Some cosmetic lenses don’t allow as much oxygen to reach your eye, making them less comfortable for long-term use. Ideal for one-time use for a makeup look or Halloween party.
Cosmetic lenses are purely just for show, however that doesn’t mean they cannot be prescription lenses too. Some coloured contacts come with a prescription power so everyone can enjoy a new eye colour. When you’re buying your cosmetic lens, make sure you provide all your prescription information. If you have astigmatism, make sure your lenses are suitable. For example, the specially made cosmetic contact lenses for astigmatism from Solotica are made to measure especially for people with astigmatism.
