Safety: The Risk of Halloween Contact Lenses

As this article states “Decorative Halloween contact lenses can permanently damage eyes if not properly fitted”, read more below…

> With Halloween approaching, the American Optometric Association (AOA) and the Indiana Optometric Association (IOA) are warning consumers about the risks of wearing decorative contact lenses without a prescription from an eye doctor. These non-corrective lenses, which are designed only to change the appearance of the eyes, are easily accessible to consumers and are especially popular around Halloween.

>Federal law requires the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate decorative lenses as a medical device, similar to corrective lenses; however, decorative lenses continue to be illegally marketed and distributed directly to consumers through a variety of sources including flea markets, the Internet, beauty salons and convenience stores.

Don’t damage your eyes just to look good for a Halloween party!
