Coloured contact lenses
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place I can order coloured contacts from, specifically for Lady from DMC, so I'd need one red and one blue XD I'm trying to get her down as deadly accurately as possible. So does anyone know of somewhere reliable online I could look into?

I've been recommended this site in the past when I've asked people about there contacts:

http://www.foureyez.com/foureyez_patterns.html

I've never bought any from here so I can't say if it's good or not but people seemed to really like it. I hope this helps

remember to get a contact lens check at an optometrist's before you try any contact lenses, unless you're already a wearer.

here ends this public health broadcast.

I really dislike contact lenses I really wish i had the gaul to wear them O_o i get very odd around my eyes usually when a character needs colour (my vincent valentien/alucard) I usually do a subtle makeup job around the eyes, though its more difficult if the character just has diffrent coloured eyes as a fact of pigment and not some otherworldy variable lol.

mabye i will stop being a sissy and pop some in ^.^

I've used the Foureyez lenses before and I was really happy with them! Although if you don't usually wear lenses I'll warn you now- they're a bugger to put in! I had to get my mum to help cos she wears lenses all the time XD

I wear coloured contacts... though I shouldn't.

For Seras Victoria I wanted to have the proper blood lust eyes, but I already need vision correction, and I require toric lenses. Now, you can get perscription coloured contacts, but not in toric (at least for red anyway).

So, I wear two pairs over the top of each other. My vision torics go underneath as they're the best on my actual eyes, and the colour goes on top. And what I find is that after they're in for about an hour, the lack of liquid between the two lenses cause them to fuse, and become like one lense. So it's just like wearing a slightly bulkier contact lense.

When I take them out they are stuck together, but I just peel them apart, and they're both cleaned seperately, and sit in their own pots.

I do not recommend this to other people, it's just what I do because I'm determined to have a correct costume. Though I have had a check up on my eyes recently, and they're completely fine, with no signs of the two contacts doing any damage. Though I've only worn them together about 8 times in a year, so it's very short term wear.

Anyway, not quite the question, but an interesting look at contact lenses XD

I'm sure we've all done worse things. Like used isoflex indoors.

It's not cosplay if you don't have major health risks!

Meh, the way I look at contact lenses is that I'm putting something in my eye which has been designed to go there. Putting two in is just a thicker lense. At least I didn't decide to paint the red on myself...

this is going to sound reeeeally dumb, but are the coloured/pattern contact lenses re-useable?..or is it just a one time use, then discard?...

They are re-useable, but only if you wash them in a saline solution.

Wow, thanks for all the replies everyone, it's been very helpful of you. I think that website should be good for me. That double contact lenses thing doesn't sound like a good idea for me XD Never heard of anyone trying that.

Actually its what I do for Sephiroth. its surprisingly more confortable than I thought. I wouldn't recommend it unless your an experienced lens wearer like myself. Been wearing mine on and off for over 15 years.

I have a question! I bought some Sharingan lenses and it says on the packaging that they're only wearable for about 30 or so days. Does this mean after wearing them to a con/using them for said about of time, I have to throw them out and get a new pair? Or if I keep them clean I can reuse them as much as I like?


29 Jan 2009 - 10:3610200
I think for health reasons you should stop wearing them after the 30 days. Although I kept the bottle of saline solution i had till it's expiry date, so just had to re-buy lenses alone.

It's supposed to be for the 30 days straight but I've worn my Alucard ones for a longer period (over half a year) as originally it stated 30 days outside of the solution. So it could be one day a year for 30 years according to that LOL

But they now say 30 days straight.

Yeah im assuming this is like if you wear them after the reccomended days and something happens you cant sue them ^.^ like expirey dates its mostly much longer but if something was to happen you cant sue ^.^ ive known people wear the contacts for months and it usually is ok.

The other thing I'm a little lost with is cleaning them. They're still in the little jars and I was told to wash them in the solution but I don't know how many times to wash them before it's ok to wear.


30 Jan 2009 - 00:3310244
To wash contacts you rinse them out with the solution, rub them a little with your finger to remove any residue then put them in their jar overnight.

Clean!

I have to ask, from that site when you buy them if the quantity is one is that for a pair of contacts or just one?

As Uber Said you rinse them in solution in the palm of your hand and move the lens round with the tip of your finger...

You can normally see if the contact has something on them or if they are dirty..

Actually I was referring to first time use. The jar's they're in have some kind of solution in and I was told not to put them straight in my eye's. I think I'm supposed to put them in the plastic case that came with them and fill it up with the cleaning solution, but I was worried about if the other stuff doesn't wash off straight away.

Am I just worrying about nothing? Thanks for the help ^^


31 Jan 2009 - 00:1710283
Oh, just do a quick rinse on them. The fluid's a bit nasty, but not that bad. Washing them before you put them on just makes them easier to adjust to.
