Things to Consider When Using Contact Lenses this Halloween

There are many costumes and props you can use to look scary this Halloween Season. One of these is wearing different colors of contact lenses. Before you go to a Halloween Costume Party, make sure you take these things into a consideration.

1. Make an appointment with your eye care professional before purchasing costume lenses

2. Receive an eye exam to determine if your eyes are good candidates for contact lenses

3. Get a prescription for contact lenses from your ophthalmologist

4. Wash and rinse your hands thoroughly with a mild soap, rinse completely, and dry with a lint-free towel before handling your lenses.

5. Put in your contacts before you put on your makeup or any costume paint.

6. Remove lenses immediately if you experience eye discomfort, vision changes, and redness of the eye or other problems and promptly contact your eye care professional or seek urgent care if he/she is unavailable.

7. Never share contacts or wear another person's lenses.

8. Don't wear lenses longer than the time frame recommended by your eye doctor.

9. Lastly,- Make sure to ONLY purchase FDA-approved costume contacts from retailers who require a prescription
