Hi Folks,

Just to remind everyone, quality soft Halloween Contact Lenses are out there (and, no, I don't make them) -- they usually have to be ordered and take a few days to get from your practitioner.

Here are Wildfire Wild Eyes on a staff member a few years ago:

I must agree. I have 2 pairs myself. My black scleras are a huge hit with people. I get stares from people who work with me at the haunted house. I almost expected to be cool with them, but they still get weirded out by them.


I highly reccomend fxeyes.com if anyone is looking for a pair. They are a little more expensive, but are very professional. They really take pride in what they do and communicate well with the customers.

Don't cheap out on your lenses. Get the professional ones. You can do serious damage to your eyes if they are not the right type. I wish I could wear contacts. But, if I could, I would make sure to get good ones and take care of my eyes.

My thoughts exactly. I went to my eye doctor and got measurements for my eyes and his proffesional opion on the subject. So I had my contacts custom fitted and they ended up costing me $300.

Good point. Being an eye doc, I should have made that point...d-oh!

Why can't you wear contacts? Very few patients can't.

Smart thing to do! I wish all my patients thought that way before they screwed up their eyes by trying "cheapie" non-prescribed lenses.

Diabetic with early stages of rhetenopothy (spelling is probably off on that one). Asked my Opthomologist and he said he wouldn't reccomend it. That's enough for me. I'm a miniature painter. So, my vision is very important to me. Not going to risk it. Besides, I don't mind glasses. I've had them for 27 years now.

Well the way I see it (no pun intended), vision is my favorite sense. I would be lost without it, and am so greatful to have it. There's so many beautiful things to see in this world. To live a life in darkness would be the worst sort of torture.

That being said, I'd never risk something so valuable to me.
