Red eyes are often associated with monsters, fiends and vampires and ghouls. These red coloured contact lenses are great for Halloween and special occasions, but not really for everyday wear. They are a wonderful addition to many cosplay creations and can be used as a finishing touch for SFX makeup.
Red contact lenses, plano or prescription, will instantly transform your appearance. This can be scary or frightening depending on what design you choose. Our online shop has many different designs. Some are inspired by famous movie or book characters while others have a more abstract style that can create a terrifying effect. Some even cover your entire eye!
The contacts in this collection come in a range of colors, including the plain and vibrant reds of the Red Devil model as well as more elaborate designs such Volturi and Vampire. As they have the same tone, we've included violet and pink lenses even though they are not strictly red. You can make your eyes look sickly tired or like you are a zombie or other member of the undead hoards. These contacts, Jigsaw, or Bloodshot, will give your eyes a very diseased appearance, perfect for biohazard style costumes. You can go further by opting for one of the many 22mm-sclera lenses such as Contagion, Quasar or Quasar. They are perfect for the type of effect on others that really makes you pleased you went all out on sclera lenses. For a brightening look, choose Wild Fire and Dragon Eye. If anime and manga are your passions, you can also try Kakashi and Madara, Sasuke, and Mangekyou, all of which feature red and black Naruto-inspired patterns. Tokyo Ghoul lovers will be delighted to learn that Gremlin sclera lenses are perfect for cosplaying Kaneki and other ghouls in this series.
You will find lenses of different diameters in our collection of red contacts, as mentioned above. The standard-sized lenses have the same size iris as regular corrective colour contact lenses. Many of them can be ordered with prescription powers so that you have sharp vision and an interesting appearance. You can also find slightly larger 17mm lenses, which make a dramatic difference to your look. However, they are only available in plano otherwise known as zero prescription power. These lenses give your eyes a vibrant red colour that makes them appear much larger than normal and more unique. Last but not the least, we stock 22mm "full eye” sclera red contacts. These create an absolutely insane look that covers your entire eye. Cyclop contacts are a fantastic example. They are completely opaque (except for their pupil), and cover your whole eye with plain flat red. Their effect on the look of your costume can be very visually severe - for some costumes, this can be exactly what you are looking for. These lenses are slightly more complicated to insert, but not difficult if you wear contacts regularly. You can also find a detailed article on how to wear sclera lenses. You can be certain that no matter which diameter of the lens you choose, the impact you achieve with them will be remarkable.
Benefits of red coloured contact lenses
While they may look scary, our red cosplay contact lenses are safe and comfortable. If they're well maintained, most can be worn for up to one year. This will allow you to make scary faces on Halloween as well as on many other occasions. Another great article is available to remind those who might be lacking in practice on how to take care of your contacts.
Many lenses in this collection have prescription powers. This means you don't have to worry about ruining your carefully planned costume by wearing glasses. You have the option to choose between 0.0 and -6.0 in half-diopter increments. These lenses can be worn for long hours without any discomfort or irritation, despite their unusual appearance.
Please remember that contact lenses should not be worn until a proper lens fitting has been done and a prescription issued by an experienced optometrist. Even if your eyes look perfect and you don’t need vision correction, you should still get a prescription to help you determine the best lens parameters. While we do not require that you upload your prescription during ordering, it is helpful to have it on hand in case of any issues. Your optician can also advise you on proper contact lens care and safety. We have articles on topics surrounding all types of contact lenses and are available if you've forgotten anything or need a refresher.
For comfort and the good health of your eyes, hygiene is essential for all contact lenses. If you are buying red lenses for Halloween, or other special occasions, be sure to purchase a container of high quality contact lens solution. This will allow you to store the lenses properly even when they are not being used. Contact lens friendly moisturising drop is a great option if you have dry eyes or plan to use your lenses for a longer than normal time. These eye drops instantly relieve dry eyes and keep your lenses moist and fresh feeling for longer.
Look around and you will most likely find a pair that gives you just the right effect.
