Specialty Contact Lenses
We fit many different types of contact lenses here at the Aboite Family Eyecare Center. We utilize the latest in gas permeable materials for rigid contact lenses. For those who have been told they can’t be fit in contact lenses because of their complicated prescription, custom made contacts are available. We have soft contact lenses, disposables, dailies, multifocal and monofocal contacts, and lenses to change your eye color and even special effect contact lenses for Halloween and other special events.
Special-effect contact lenses — including black contact lenses, Halloween contact lenses and other “crazy” lenses — are soft contact lenses that are available for theatrical and novelty uses.
Just like colored contact lenses, special-effect (FX) or crazy contacts can be used whether or not you normally wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, because most types are available both with and without lens powers to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism.
It’s important to note that all contact lenses, including plano Halloween contacts and any other special-effects contacts, are classified as medical devices by the FDA and require a valid contact lens prescription from a licensed eye care practitioner.
Theatrical or novelty lenses are safe to wear — but only when they are properly prescribed and cared for, and purchased from a legitimate source. Putting the finishing touch to your Halloween costume is not worth a sight-threatening eye infection from improper contact lens use.
