"How Can I Get Novelty Contact Lenses In The UK?"

While Novelty contact lenses UK wide are comparatively new, these contacts have been indispensable to Hollywood for almost half a century. Nowadays novelty contact lenses are frequently employed to put the final touches to a costume, or at Halloween, and novelty lenses are no longer the sole preserve of the stage and the silver screen.

Many online stores in the UK will only process orders for novelty lenses if they receive a copy of your recent Contact Lenses Specification. It must show the date of your last eye exam, brand and type of lenses prescribed, fitting and power details of the contact lenses and your optician's name and address.

Novelty Contacts Are Fun

  • Put on a black cat suit and Cat Eye contacts from Crazy Lenses


  • Wear a tuxedo and Vampire Red lenses


  • Wear a devil costume with Flames novelty lenses


  • To look really scary, wear a novelty contact lens in only one eye
UK novelty lenses have gone haute couture, with Christian Dior putting his distinctive logo on a line of two sets of contacts designed by John Galliano.
