Spooky Downsides Of Costume Lenses

Halloween is coming up soon, and many people are starting to work on their costumes.

Sometimes, a spooky ensemble just isn’t complete without a pair of color contact lenses. However, dedicated costume enthusiasts should be very careful, because not all costume contacts are created equal. Eye trouble shouldn’t be what makes Halloween scary, but contaminated or ill-fitting contact lenses could do serious damage to your eyes.

Come To Us To Get A Prescription!

Before you get contacts of any kind, whether they’re corrective, decorative, or both, it’s crucial to get a prescription. Prescriptions aren’t just about making sure the lenses adjust your vision the right amount—they’re also about making sure the lenses fit comfortably on your eye. You’ll also need this prescription in order to buy contacts from any vendors who are actually following the law.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! We’re more than happy to provide you with any information you need to maintain healthy, lifelong vision health.

Wishing all our patients a spooky (and safe) Halloween!
