There are different types of contact lenses, just as with normal lenses. The oldest type of lenses is hard ones, but these are not to be worn for long periods of time because they prevent the cornea from getting the oxygen it needs. Gas Permeable (GP) or Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Halloween contact lenses allow oxygen to reach the cornea because they are made of a breathable plastic. These are actually custom fit to the individual shape of the cornea. This makes them comfortable to wear but does make them one of the most expensive types of Halloween contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are the most comfortable type of Halloween contact lenses and they are best for your eyes.
