Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not

Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not


On the off chance that anime contact lenses aren't avant-garde enough for you, this should fit the bill. Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek has created contacts that give the appearance of crying. The crystal "tears" are attached to the contact by a thin wire, and due to interest from Klarenbeek's prototype, you'll soon be able to purchase a pair for about $270.

"You can't feel the wire dangling, it doesn't affect your sight and the lens moves along gently with your eyeball, even while blinking," Klarenbeek says. "If someone tugs on the wire while you are wearing it the lens will just fall out — or at the very worst the wire might break."
