Around Halloween everybody decides that they want scary or different colour eyes and although it's actually illegal to sell contact lenses without a prescription many companies do it. I've never been the type to have contact lenses until this year because I have highly sensitive eyes and I'm the person who reads all these horror stories of contact lenses making you go blind if you buy them from the internet. This year I decided I'd try them out after hours of googling and watching youtube tutorials I looked on Amazon and bought 'White Out Lenses' from a company called MesmerEyez the link for the Amazon listing is here.
Please note that MesmerEyez have a license to sell contact lenses but many others don't so please do your research about the company you can read about MesmerEyez policy here
please know what you are putting in your eyes or just stick to MesmerEyez.
I paid extra for delivery so they'd get it here quick and they did, I also invested in a contact lense case from ebay which I won't link as you buy these from eBay for around £2.
I know these look really minging and dirty now mainly because I took them out after a night out so they have eye make-up all over them and to be honest there ready for the bin. Please make sure you know how long your contact lenses last for as most 'Halloween' types are 'One Day Only' as these ones are, I only kept them for pictures and this blog review then they'll be in the bin. I actually threw the packaging in the bin but they come in a little box with some solution.
I decided that I wanted to buy my own solution and really soak them a few days before wearing them, you can pick up contact solution from most places I got mine from Asda and it was £4 and you got a free lense case not the one pictured here btw.
I can't really tell you if this helped that much because I never tried them without this solution but they were really easy to wear and I forgot I even had them in.
Some Tips For Putting Contacts In
• Wash and dry your hands thoroughly.
• Place eyewear onto the tip of your index finger ensuring that it has a natural bowl like shape, see diagram.
• Hold your upper lid open with your other index finger, at the same time hold your lower lid open with the middle finger.
Looking straight at your eye in the mirror, slowly and gently place the accessory on your eye.
• Carefully release your eyelids and blink.
• You can gently massage your eyelid to centre the accessory.
• When you are sure that it is correctly inserted, repeat the procedure for the opposite eye.
