Whether you are obsessed with James Cameron’s Pandora, can’t wait for Tron Legacy, an old-school sci-fi nerd or a dyed in the wool Trekkie, science fiction is set to be huge this summer. Right now we’re loving the idea of sci-fi contact lenses – Halloween contact lenses that will give you the metallic silver eyes of a cyborg, bionic eyes with electronic lenses, alien eye colours or the perfect Na’avi eyes.
There are lot of coloured contact lenses that can be used as part of a sci-fi Halloween costume or for your next cosplay get up. On the whole coloured contact lenses are very versatile and it is simply a question of matching up your chosen characterâ€™s eye colour with a lens that you can find online. Personally I love metallic silver contact lenses like the ones below. They make me think of modern sci-fi cyborgs â€“ think Blade Runnerâ€™s replicants, Riddick in Pitch Black, Molly Millions and a whole host of Star Trek androids and sentient robots.
Types of Sci-Fi Contact Lenses
Technically any coloured contact lens could be part of a science fiction-inspired costume but certain lenses definitely lend themselves more to being â€œsci-fi contact lensesâ€. Silver contact lenses are perfect for robotic-themed costumes, cyberpunk and cyborg costumes. If you want to create the look of bionic eyes, the Cyborg and Bionic lenses below are just the ticket. They are both very similar to the bionic eyes sported by Geordi LaForge in later seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Avatar contact lenses are a great way to create an homage to the Naâ€™avi and we also have White Screen Contact Lenses. These brand-new contacts have a fine grid design that covers up your iris and pupil â€“ you can see out but to everyone else it looks as if there is a wire mesh covering your eye.
