Hand-Painted Contacts

Decorative and Theatrical Contact Lenses

These are referred to as Halloween, stage, theater, film, cosplay, comic-con, costume or decorative contact lenses. These lens designs are more imaginative than color and cosmetic lenses. These lenses can be designed in nearly every color and design imaginable. These lenses are most commonly seen on stage and screen, completing a costume for an actor or actress. These are particularly popular in sci-fi, fantasy, action, and horror movies.

Simple designs, such as a limbal ring or circle contact lenses, can make the iris look bigger and more defined. More adventurous designs, such as sclera contact lenses or character contact lenses, can be used to make the whole eye appear another color, such as all black, or give a cat eye pupil.

Color options and designs are only limited by the artists ability to paint the desired effect and Dr. Gelles ability to design a well fitting and healthy lens. As Dr. Gelles works with the best contact lens artists in the industry and only offers custom hand painted designs you must provide examples (images or drawings) or detailed instructions of your desired lens design. The final lens will be an artistic representation of the lens design, not an exact duplicate. To ensure we meet your deadline, we must begin the process 12 weeks, at minimum, prior to your event.
