With Halloween just around the corner, we felt it was important to remind everyone that wearing colored contacts or costume contacts can be dangerous for your eyes. These contacts are not FDA approved and when worn can cause corneal abrasions, eye infections or even blindness in some cases. This risk to your eye health is too great for the minor reward of making your costume look more realistic.
The risk for injury or damage is more than sixteen times greater than those who wear medically prescribed contact lenses. So, this Halloween go out and have fun, but be safe, draw the line at costume contact lenses. Happy Halloween!
