World Cup Contact Lens


German optician Stephanie Berndt wears a soccer ball contact lens, part of a commemorative set to celebrate this year's World Cup in Munich.

A set of "Magic Lenses," consisting of one soccer ball lens and one with the colors of the German flag, costs €45 ($54 USD) — but you have to go to Germany to buy them.

Do you know if you could prescription lenses in this design or is it mainly decorative?

My husband had a friend who had a glass eye with an American flag on it. It used to cause comment, never more so than when he'd pop it out and drop it in his drink.
I like the world cup lenses. Wish they were a pair with just the soccer ball. I might wear them. And bump into things a lot. Small price to pay.
