One size does not fit all.

  • Description:
    Decorative contact lenses without a presecription are NOT a good fit and can lead to these 4 nightmares: eye scratches, eye sores, eye infections, vision loss.

    Don’t let an eye infection be the scariest part of your Halloween. Using decorative lenses without a valid prescription can cause serious harm to your eyes—haunting you long after October 31 1. You can safely buy contact lenses from eye doctors’ offices, online, or by mail order with a valid prescription, but don’t purchase decorative contact lenses from costume shops, online stores, beauty salons, drug stores, flea markets, or anywhere that doesn’t require a prescription. When decorative contact lenses are sold without a prescription, proper fitting, and education from an eye doctor, there may be a higher chance of contact lens related eye problems. Decorative lenses purchased without a prescription may not fit properly, leaving the eye more susceptible to scratches on the outer layer of the eye, or getting an ulcer (an open sore) on the cornea- the clear covering over the front of the eye. The result of a scratch or sore can be scarring, infection, and permanent vision reduction or loss.

    Enjoy a safe and happy Halloween by educating yourself and others about the dangers of using decorative contact lenses without a prescription.
