Looking for cheap affordable contact lenses.

I'm sorry if this has been extensively covered, but I have tried my best to find information on his before I posted this thread. Apologies if this is also the wrong area for this thread.

I am looking for a affordable and reliable source for SFX contact lenses. To be exact, I am looking for one the Sharingan lens, from Naruto. I understand that 9mmsfx is one of the sites I am going to be recommended, but to be honest, I do not have the money to buy from there. If anybody has good suggestions on where I can buy affordable and reliable Sharingan SFX contact lenses, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Aqua

If you're talking about borrowing contact lenses from a friend (can't really tell if you mean the costume or the contacts only) then I would HIGHLY recommend against it. Wearing someone else's contact lenses are a good way to get an eye infection and possibly end up blind.

Of course, if you were talking about just the costume, or if the contacts are brand new and he won't wear them after you do, feel free to disregard what I said.

I was about to say something like, well you can't be cheap with something that you put in your eyes, if it's manufactured by somewhere in china without regard to your safety then that would just be dangerous, but $200 for a pair of theatrical contacts? I was thinking $100! I mean regular contacts are like $50 for a daily pair. But 200?! WOAH! There must be somewhere that can do it for cheaper, and safely.

http://www.bewild.com/toinwrcocole.html I’m sorry to say this is the cheapest you can get them at. Since they are a specialty item they are made in small quantities which increases the price. Standard red contacts are a lot more popular so they can be made at reasonable price.

(for the Sharingan ones they are under 'crazy contacts' listed as Itachi's eyes. they are about $50 american)

I'm not sure about the quality of these because I haven't bought any off of them yet so...yeah...the site was linked to by someone from the Naruto thread on the anime and manga costume discussion sub-board so you should go over there and ask more questions if your curious.

They look okay, but if anyone has first hand experience from this site, it would help.

Wow, these are super cheap contacts! Hmm, I sort of have a question for all of you... These contacts don't mess with your vision right? ... I'm actually thinking about buying a pair of vampire eyes from that fashion-contactlenses.com store sometime in the next couple of weeks. But anyways... This is my first time getting contacts o.O so... er... are they comfortable at all? Comfortable as in... Blinking my eyes like crazee?

Well, I too want those and I think I read on the site that those lenses don't affect your vision at all.

And as for putting them in... I have lenses like them (but yellow) and I am having the hardest time getting them in. But some people are helping me on the board made about it, so feel free to go there and ask about it, since the people there have worn them. Who knows, maybe it can help you prepare for wearing them too. :3 And if I am able to get them in next time I try (tomorrow) I'll be sure to let you know how it feels.

Alrighty, ^^; thanks a bunch! Heh... I really want their lenses now considering how cheap they are. I'll be sure to ask around. Thanks again!
