Special effects contacts for costume & makeup

We offer special effects contact lenses for the perfect Costume look!

Lenses are individually fitted to each person and are not intended to be worn by anyone else.

Contact lenses are medical devices and have the potential to cause permanent damage. They must be checked by an eye doctor on your eye. They are not “one-size-fits-all” products. Before purchasing lenses your eyes should be measured and the lenses should be checked to ensure that you can wear them safely.

Don’t take chances with your vision!

We have an exciting variety of different effects from cat eyes to bold colors to electric rays. Call or visit us to get your look on!
