Scary Contact Lenses

Contact lenses come in all kinds of colors and designs that are especially popular around Halloween. They can take your costume to the next level, or add a fun, crazy, design. But did you know that many decorative contact lenses can be very dangerous to your eyes.

From the American Optometric Association:

  • All contact lenses are medical devices that require a doctor’s prescription before getting inserted into your eyes
  • Many unapproved or counterfit contact lenses tested positive for common bacterial contamination that have been linked to serious eye infections and vision loss

Be safe with contacts:

  • Get a comprehensive eye exam
  • Check your prescription
  • No unverified contacts
  • Never share contacts
  • Never sleep in contacts
