Beware! Halloween Contact lenses are Dangerous!


Beware! Halloween is this Friday and as many parents and kids prepare their costumes for Trick or Treat, it is important to point out the dangers posed by some costume accessories. Many people purchase decorative contact lenses to complete their scary costumes. These contact lenses are often times available at Halloween stores and online. They are not regulated by the FDA or an eye doctor. Many of the decorative contact lenses are made in China and are not safe to wear! These contact lenses may not fit properly and can cause scratches on the wearer’s eye which may lead to an infection or even vision loss!

It’s important to consult your eye doctor before wearing any contact lenses. Your eye doctor will be able to determine if your eyes are a good fit for contact lenses. The Doctors of Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee custom fit contact lenses by using several methods including measuring the front curvature of a patient’s eyes, measuring the quality of their tears and using a computerized baseline for their prescription.

Don’t be tricked this Halloween into those dangerous decorative contact lenses! You must have an eye exam and a contact lens evaluation before you wear contact lenses.
