^^^ That's fine with me, I have enough contacts to go around and play with Smile I already have the white-out contacts seen in the demo vid. Contacts that I HIGHLY recommend are the Angelic Blue lenses (seen in my AV Pic), they almost look like they glow! Infact, my nephew calls me "Glow eye's" when I wear em Smile

If anyone is looking to get contacts where they don't ask for that special something, PM me (hope this don't get me in trouble Smile ).

According to Alakazam, it is dangerous to use normal FX contacts with Berk's method , so you need and must use the biokinesis ones.

remember you only get one set of eyes, don't damage them for a trick, its not cool.

^^^ That's understandable, I been wearing FX contacts for over 12 years, it depends what they mean by "normal FX contacts". I have wrote so many reviews on contact lenses it's not even funny, including Mirrored lenses (as you see in the Riddick movies) on my Lens forums.


There are many different kinds out there, hand painted, machines laser colored, etc. I feel what this effect boils down to is the thickness of the contact lens itself, as there is simply NO special way to make a FX contact lens (I can care less if it's for a trick or not). There are yearly contacts which tend to be thicker, monthlies which tend to be much thinner, daily's super thin, Etc. There are 11mm(glass lenses) 14mm, 15mm, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm, anything above 14mm will be thicker. I have some 18mm that can barely bend!


As I stated, there is no special way to make a contact lens, they are all made out of the same thing, polymers, more specifically polycrylamide (so the eye can breath). The only special thing they can do with this effect is if they cut the contact lens a certain way, but if this is the case, it would make the lens use-less.

There is one way to release this effect to U.S. customers. At the Check-out process, ask for the phone-number to the customers eye doctor so they can be cleared to wear contacts.


Just as if I ordered lenses from Internet sites here in the states, most of the sites ask for my eye doctors phone number, and clear it through them that I have had an eye physical and am cleared to wear contact lenses. I do not see why this same process cannot be done with this effect? This is following FDA procedure and is the legal way of purchasing contact lenses here in the states.


If extra charges need to be added due to the long-distance phone call to there eye-doctor, then so be it, atleast we would be able to own this effect.

So as of right now is there even a link to purchase the lenses? And while on the lenses are there any specifics as to why I'd need 'special' lenses?

The lenses discussed are part of the effect and AIUI come with your order.

I was at Alakazam HQ this last week filming some projects & received a master of Biokinesis & the lenses.

Firstly the dvd explains everything in great detail & Berk Shows Marc who has never worn lenses before every little detail !! I have never before worn any lenses & have been trying this out & it is great. It will take practise like everything else but Berk Teaches 3 methods ranging from Step 1 to step 3. When you understand the concept this makes the learning much quicker & practise will be required for the different techniques.

All in All a well produced dvd that goes through each & every step of the effect & also the care of your eyes, like anything you put into your eyes you are responsible for the hygiene & care of the lenses which to a novice like me explains what I wanted to know !!!

Should start to ship out of Alakazam on the 22nd October just in time for halloween !!
