Dangers of Costume Contact Lenses

Dangers of Costume Contact Lenses

Halloween is a popular holiday in our area and your favorite vision practice in Greenville has all of the information that you need to keep your vision and eyes safe during this SPOOKY season!  If you’re considering enhancing your Halloween costume this year with contact lenses, be sure to read the advice of our eye doctors, Thomas, Scott, and Natalie McIntosh, to learn more about how you can protect your eyes and have a safe Halloween!

What Eye Doctors Advise When it Comes to Costume Contact Lenses

Costume lenses are soft contacts that are colored in whimsical ways to give your costume even more authenticity! Whether you are dressing up as a vampire or cat-woman, be sure to follow these tips in order to avoid any eye issues. You may be surprised to learn that all contact lenses, whether they are corrective or not, require a prescription for purchase. 

Any lenses must be cared for properly in order to avoid infection and harm to your eyes. If you have used costume contact lenses and are experiencing discomfort, give Carolina Vision Care a call to set up an eye exam and ensure that you do not experience any long-term damage to your eyes or vision.

From when I walked in the staff was cheerful and happy. I had a lady take me back for the pre-exam part and she was such a sweetheart ! Then the eye doctors daughter who is also the contact lady was sooo nice and made me feel at home! Amazing, amazing place!"
