This year, everyone will be celebrating Halloween while complying with our new COVID restrictions. As you venture out into the “new normal,” dressed to haunt/scare/get the perfect Insta pic, we feel it is extremely important for you to consider this: One misguided, impulsive decision to use the wrong decorative contact lenses can affect your vision for months or years to come.
You should never buy lenses from:
- Street vendors
- Salons or beauty supply stores
- Flea markets
- Novelty stores
- Halloween stores
- Record or video stores
- Convenience stores
- Beach shops
- Internet sites that do not require a prescription
These are not authorized distributors of contact lenses, which are prescription devices by federal law.
Check out this informative article
by the FDA, which highlights things you should consider when purchasing decorative and prescription contact lenses to complete the look you are hoping to achieve. Most importantly, one size does not
fit all. If the testimonial doesn’t scare you straight, we don’t know what will.
This Halloween, take the proper steps BEFORE purchasing decorative contact lenses. Wear them responsibly to ward off any bad luck associated with poor decision making. Remember, one bad decision can potentially haunt your vision for the rest of your life.
