One site has been recommended to me by a friend is this site Fashion Contact Lenses. They are based in the UK and are reasonably quick.


Thanks for this, I just found the perfect Violet coloured lenses on there after searching everywhere for just the right colour.

I went into specsavers today & got a leaflet for Freaky prescription contact lenses. They seem to only do 12 different styles as prescription vision correcting lens but also have a range of 24 different styles in non-vision correcting lenses.

This wesite shows all the styles they do but it is a wholesalers website so I'm not sure if you can buy them online. http://www.freakyprescriptionlenses.com/

Specsavers do them for £60 which includes the lenses, advice & fitting, tuition, solution & aftercare. I don't know much about contact lenses but apparantly the prescription ones need replacing yearly & the non-prescription ones last 90 days.

I'm going to go check this out . I went into the Milton Keynes one some months ago and they where like yes we do. Then told me that there supplier crazy eyes stopped producing them and they hadn't got a different supplier. But I take this is a new brand.

I hope our branch has these on offer to it would make me so happy.

Can I just add, whilst I've bought from them before with no issue, recently I purchased a pair and they arrived the next day and payment was taken later.
I then purchased a second pair and that order wasn't even acknowledged with no payment taken. I emailed them and had no reply, I made the same order again back in early December and payment was taken shortly after but nothing arrived.
I took in account the Christmas period but when I emailed them last weekend they said it sounded like they had been lost in the post.
I now have my order, it's put me off but the website was being updated at the time, so plan ahead if buying from here, don't order last minute just in case there is a delay.

Which branch was this? I went into the Milton Keynes one and the contact lense specialist didn't know what I was talking about but an assistant did. She said they did them for a month and no one ordered any so they ditched it. She said some branches still might be.

Coloured contact lenses make me sad. I have to wear glasses, so need prescription lenses or I get major headaches, but nowhere seems to do prescription fashion/colour lenses for long-sighted people! They all go up to -6.00, but none that go the other way, nevermind up to my prescription (+7.50 and +8.00 respectively)! So I have to buy non-prescription lenses and take my glasses with me for when my head starts hurting. Which really ruins the look.

Edit to Add: I have worn coloured contact lenses for Hallowe'en, though. I bought them from bodyjewelleryshop.com and they were fine. Just remember to clean them and store them properly.

Anyone knows what happened to youknowit.com ? :S almost all of their lenses seem to be out of stock for a few weeks now :S

Sorry I dont have anything helpful to add to this thread, I do however have a question, and would be very thankful for some advice!

I am looking to buy some cat eye lenses for a costume I'd like to do in May, and there are SO MANY websites selling these lenses. By biggest concern is that I have heard they are prone to spinning, and the ideal lenses would be a pair that are weighted. Its quite fustrating because A LOT of websites seem to lack information about the lenses they sell, a majority of them just have a picture and information about how long you can wear them for. My precription contacts are slightly larger than those fashion ones sold on the market, so its fustrating when there isnt even any information on size.

Does anyone have a recommended supplier, and what was your experience wearing them?

Thanks

Does anyone know where I can buy some purple coloured
contact lenses with prescription?
I'm looking for monthly ones just to try something
new and fun, but the websites I've found have bad reviews,
all the ones I've found are prone to tearing.

Thanks

I've read everything on this thread and it's been very helpful

One question though, and I apologise but it has a backstory:
I don't wear glasses or lenses so decided to follow the advice of getting my eyes tested before buying any.
I went into SpecSavers, Boots and Optical Express only to be told that they don't do testing for cosmetic contacts.

Any advice on what to do now?
I'm not sure whether to go back and ask again, but they all said they don't offer such a test :/

I'm not entirely sure what sort of test you mean tbh, but as it's best to get your eyes checked out every 6 months at the least anyway, just make an appointment with your optician for a regular check up so you'll know if you have any problems with your sight that way, you can always quiz whoever does your check up on if there's anything that makes your eyes unsuitable for cosmetic lenses as he makes sure you can see.

Personally I'd advise to just buy a pair of high water content and just try putting them in to see how your eyes react to them. This is what my younger brother had to do when he started wearing lenses instead of glasses, and what I did when I tried cosmetic ones.

My one question would be does anyone have the same problem as me; I'm long sighted so have to wear glasses for reading or seeing close up in general, so when I put my contacts in, it's poking one blurry colour into another blur and hoping for the best; any suggestions how to get around this?

Advice?
Ok guys I'm in need of some advice.

I'm having a really hard time finding contact lenses
that fit me. usually i wear prescription contacts but
this time im looking to buy without prescription for cosplay.

The base curve of my eyes is 8.7 but I cant find any lenses with the same base curve! the closest I've found is 8.6, now if I order these will they damage my eyes?

I know its only a difference of .1 but I thought it best to be safe then sorry.

so any advice? ;3

If it's for short-term wear (i.e. one-off or a couple of days) I should imagine you'll be ok. I've worn contacts for Hallowe'en parties a few times, and can honestly say I've never checked the base curve but I've not had any problems. If you were planning on wearing them for a longer period of time, then I think it would be more of a problem.

Quote Stubbled Grapes:

Occasionally I still go to push my glasses up. I'm not sure how that one works, think I'm just so used to doing that in the past xD


Haha, as a mainly glasses wearer that sometimes wear contacts I do exactly the same, if I notice myself doing it I pretend I'm scratching my nose

Quote SachikoYumi:

I put the same ones you bought only cat eye ones. I finally got them in but my eye wouldn't stop blinking and hurt so much, my eyes started watering etc.


It could be that you're eyes aren't suited to the contact lenses you bought. As contact lenses are a special shape (to curve around your eye). For example these contact lenses have a Base Curve of 8.6mm and Diameter of 14.0mm (probably won't mean anything to you unless you wear prescription lenses) but these are just the commonest values rather than suitable for everyone, my eyes are 8.6mm base curve and a diameter of 13.8mm so these might not even be suitable for me.

My advice would be to go see an opticians e.g. Spec Savers and say you're wanting to wear cosmetic lenses and get them to do a contact lense test,they'll measure your eyes and give you a prescription that you can use to judge what lenses are suitable for you. AFAIK you don't have to actually have bad eyes to get this done. They'll also show you how to put them in and explain how to store them etc. Cosmetic lenses are just prescription contact lenses with a power of 0 really so all the same rules apply.


I've had trouble putting in cosmetic lenses but didn't think the opticians would help unless I was getting prescription ones! That's really helpful to know! Thanks

No problem, you might want to have a read of that. The key word there though is :
"Your optician may be pleased to fit" so some opticians might not actually do it.

I am in no way an expert or have any experience in this but what you're really asking them to do is if they can measure your eyes and give you the size of and curve of your eyes rather than a test. This will allow you to pick the most suitable shaped lenses for your eyes. As I said above though the optician might not provide this service if they don't see you buying any lenses etc from them or they may charge to carry it out.

I need to wear an eye patch for a cosplay, but I want to be able to wear a contact on that eye. Help, please?

What's the actual problem? You could just wear your contact under the eye patch?

I've heard that it could irritate the eye for keeping my eye closed around the contact for that long and I was just wondering if that was true.

Again, i'm no optician (so it might be worth just going in and speaking to an optician) but if you're wearing an eye patch you don't need to close your eye (unless it's actually pressing into your eye) so just keep it off your eye a bit and maybe carry some eyedrops to keep your eyes hydrated.

Okay, thanks for the tip!
