You know what the Bay Area does almost better than anywhere else?

Wait, did you just say smoke weed? That’s not at all what I was thinking of but you bring up a good point. We are damn good at smoking weed. Touché

But you know what else the Bay Area does better than almost anywhere else?


Halloween is almost like a religion here. There are few things we hold more sacred than putting on weird costumes, going to parties, and boogying our butts off. That is when we are at our best.

In the Bay Area we put our all in to our costumes which is why I’m excited to tell you about AC Lens. They legitimately have the coolest costume contact lens I’ve ever seen. Just look at these below:

I mean look! They even have Pokemon ones…you know who you are:

Since Halloween is a month away, it’s time you get on your contact lens game. That’s because these are FDA approved, meaning they are the real deal. You even need to get a prescription to get them! Even if you don’t have need corrective lenses to see, you still gotta go to the optometrist. It’s cool though, AC Lens sells lots plano (0.00 prescription) lenses that can be worn by people who don’t require vision correction. You just gotta go to the doc to ensure you have the correct base curve and that your eyes are good to wear contacts. This is why you should shop for FDA approved contacts instead of the much more dangerous off the shelf lenses you might find at local Halloween stores and flea markets. Your eyes are important!

So if you’re planning on looking as awesome as this crazy monster below, visit your eye doctor ASAP and then order your lenses from AC Lens! They’ll be at your door in less than 5 days.

So what are you gonna be for Halloween? I can’t wait to see!
