Blind eye contacts are meant for holidays or parties in which you are expected to come in a costume. Usually, these types of contact lenses become a mainstay in a person’s arsenal of costume things when the party season comes. Some are worn in tandem with a white robe to look like a seer. It’s not just for costume play, some people use these as permanent props like when they are actors and they want to get in their role. Some people use these to look like the character Storm in Xmen. It cannot be denied that seeing someone with this type of contact lens can make a person want to run the other way.
Some more reasons to wear a pair of blind eye contact lenses include:
1. When you’re going to wear a zombie costume.
Zombies are fantasy beings that just look like they’re covered in gore. It is often difficult to pull off this look unless you’re skilled with the make up kit or you have props like plastic innards you can tape around your midriff. But with a pair of blind eyes contact lenses, you can look more authentic and creepy. Zombies are expected to move slowly so you don’t have to worry about tripping because your contacts don’t allow you to see well.
2. When you’re acting as a seer.
Seers are usually those with companions that walk with them around. They often wear robes to look mystical and have canes to hang on to. This is a difficult thing to pull off because of the consequences, like when your guide leaves you and you have to amble around because you can’t see clearly.
The opaque quality of these lenses can be a bit off-putting as they don’t allow you to see clearly. Although you can make out shapes, the opaque quality makes it difficult for you to focus on the finer details of what’s around you. There are also lens solutions made especially for these types of contacts.
3. When you want to play a prank on someone or you’re acting on stage.
As compare to the scary-type contacts, like the red ones, blind eye contacts look scarier when worn with a costume. These are widely used on stage, by actors who have memorized how many steps to take to get to the center of the stage. Some actors who play the role of one-eyed pirates use blind eye lenses to create the needed effect. Blind eye contacts are novelty items that should only be worn during special occasions. They are not meant to correct eye defects like astigmatism, and are purely used for entertainment purposes.
