October is Halloween eye safety month. You may want to make your Halloween extra special with decorative contact lenses, but be sure to see your eye care professional first. According to FDA regulations, only your eye doctor can write a valid prescription for contacts. This includes Plano decorative lenses that are sold online during the Halloween season. The tints and pigments used in decorative contact lenses can significantly decrease the ability of theses lenses to transmit oxygen to the eye, enhance comfort and prevent excessive buildup.
Complications from using cosmetic contact lenses include:
-corneal abrasions (scratches)
-conjunctivitis (red/pink eyes)
-corneal infection/ulcers (sores)
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween Everyone!!
