Contact lens gained their popularity for their discreteness, ease of use and the aesthetic enhancement that they offered to people who had to wear glasses. Advancement in technology has enabled people to minimize and even eliminate the need of glasses and contacts. But, the contacts still remain popular not for their aesthetic enhancement abilities but for the cosmetic changes that they can offer to people, by temporarily changing their eye color. In fact, contact lenses have increased in popularity of late, especially with people who want to make a fashion statement. Contacts have also evolved to provide a wide array of choices, especially for people who want to stand apart at parties and fun occasions. Glow in the dark contacts are very popular with young, party going people and their sales soar during Halloween and other similar festival days.
Glow in the dark contacts have a special layer that has the ability appear brighter in low light. This special layer of material can absorb and store some parts of light and can reflect this stored light during darker times. When they are worn in bright daylight, these contacts are transparent and do not display any glowing properties. But in dimmer light and total darkness, glow in the dark contacts clearly display glowing properties that make the wearer stand apart from the crowd. These contacts are commonly worn during parties, especially raves and also during Halloween.
