It’s time to start thinking about enhancing your Halloween costume.  Whether you are going as a sexy vampire, a brain-munching zombie or this year's hot new character, Halloween
contacts are the perfect finishing touch to any costume.  Before buying Halloween lenses, here’s what you should know:

Costume contact lenses are stylish to wear and they are designed for fun, but they are considered medical devices.  Contact lenses that do not fit properly or are not cleaned correctly can cause very serious eye problems.  It is important to see your eye doctor to accurately fit them on your eyes and give you a prescription for them.  Even if you don’t currently need to wear glasses or contacts to see clearly – you still need a prescription for them to ensure they fit your eyes properly!

Have lots of fun with your costume contact lenses, but  NEVER SHARE OR SWAP these or any type of contact lenses with anyone else – this can lead to pinkeye and other potential serious eye infections that could lead to blindness!

Never buy your costume contact lenses from a place (like a Flea Market) that does not ask you for a valid prescription from your eye doctor. Some of these lenses sold in these places are not FDA
approved.  You ALWAYS need a prescription from your eye doctor to ensure that the contact lenses fit you properly, feel comfortable and won’t cause you any serious eye problems.

We are excited to help complete your fa-BOO-lous Halloween ensemble with these fun lenses!  Please call to schedule your appointment today.
