Cosplay Contact Lenses FAQs

If you’re new to the idea of coloured contact lenses, then of course you’ll have a few questions about this unique kind of product. Let us help to answer some of the questions you may have.

1. What are cosplay contact lenses?

Cosplay contact lenses are made from the same soft materials as regular contact lenses, they simply feature printed designs that can mask and enhance your natural eye colour. Some contact lenses are wider and have a darker edge to their designs to replicate the popular big eyed kawaii style.

2. What cosplay styles are available?

Our collection includes many exciting styles including cat’s eye to awesome dragon eye effects. As well as super scary zombie contacts, you can take any glowing look to the next level with some UV contact lenses. Our Sharingan contact lens styles are proving to be popular with anime fans!

3. How easy is it to wear contact lenses?

If you’ve never worn coloured contact lenses before, then inserting them can seem a daunting task! We’ve made sure to have plenty of video tutorials and guides to help make our customer’s contact lens experience a whole lot easier. As with everything, practice makes perfect.

4. How do the contact lenses look when worn?

Our new Coloured Contacts Gallery page allows you to see the contact lenses in action and is the place to go for styling inspiration. Alongside this you’ll be delighted to find many of the style guides in our blog are packed with cosplay ideas. The contact lenses can often look different dependent on your natural eye colour, which we hope to demonstrate in our gallery pages.

5. Do I need a prescription to wear coloured contacts?

Some of our products are available as prescription, so even if you require corrective contact lenses, you can enjoy an eye colour transformation. It should be noted that US customers will need a valid prescription to purchase; this can be approved by providing optician details at the checkout.

6. How does Coloured Contacts collaborate with the Cosplay community?

We are always delighted to feature the work of talented cosplayers across our social media channels and on our website. Along with this, we have worked with cosplay events and conventions across the world; sponsoring costume contests and providing prizes and vouchers for winners and participants.
