Keep Your Eyes Safe This Halloween

Keep Your Eyes Safe This Halloween:

Don’t let an eye infection be the scariest part of your halloween.

 

Wouldn’t it be cool to have vampire eyes for Halloween?

Be careful where you get them. Never buy coloured contact lenses from a retailer that does not ask for a prescription. Even if you have perfect vision, you need to get an eye exam and contact lens fitting to get a prescription from an eye-care professional in order to wear any kind of contact lens.

They are not “one size fits all.”  A professional must measure each eye to properly fit the lenses and evaluate how your eye responds to contact lens wear. A poor fit can cause serious eye damage, including:

  • scratches on the cornea (the clear dome of tissue over the iris—the part of the eye that gives you your eye color)
  • corneal infection (an ulcer or sore on the cornea)
  • conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • decreased vision
  • blindness
