Halloween Contact LensesScott Smiledge
It’s that time of year again. The weather starts to transition from the warmth of summer to the cool of fall. When the leaves start to change it always gets me in the mood for Halloween. I think a more appropriate indicator is when Starbucks starts with their pumpkin spice latte. When that happens, it seems everyone instantly starts thinking about Halloween. More importantly their Halloween costume this year.
A popular trend for Halloween has been the use of Halloween contact lenses. Decorative contact lenses that change the color or design of your eye. There are many options and designs for these decorative lenses. You can get all white zombie contact lenses or special “cat eye” lenses that have a tiny weight called a prism ballast to keep the design from spinning or vampire contact lenses to turn you into the ultimate blood sucker. These contact lenses can put an amazing finishing touch to any costume.
These types of Halloween contact lenses seem to be sold everywhere on the internet through hundreds if not thousands of online retailers. But are they safe? The honest answer is “It depends”. Crazy lenses can be a lot of fun. But you should know the rules on how to buy them safely and legally.
Gothika Contact Lenses
Are They Safe?
What a lot of people don’t know is all contact lenses, even halloween contact lenses or colored contact lenses require a valid prescription to be legally sold in the USA. When it comes to contact lenses there is no such thing as a one size fits all lens. Just like we all have different sized shoes, our eyes are all different sizes as well. Proper fitting of any contact lens is so important to the health and safety of your vision. If you haven’t been to your eye care professional in awhile you need to go and at a minimum have your eyes measured to get your lens measurements. This will give you the proper size of your eye so you can choose the crazy contact lens that bests fits your Halloween costume.
Don’t be fooled by online retailers that claim their decorative contact lenses do not require a prescription to be sold. There really is no such thing as a non prescription contact lens. In order to sell colored contact lenses safely and legally a retailer must under US law ask you for your eye doctors information or valid prescription. The contact lens seller must reach out to your eye care professional for approval. If they do not it is an illegal sale according to the Food and Drug Administration. If you have never worn contact lenses before you should really talk to your eye doctor first.
Remember. If the seller does not ask for a valid prescription, or your eye doctors information then you should not buy them! There are a ton of online retailers selling illegal Halloween contact lenses and colored contact lenses that are not FDA regulated and not safe. Buying a cheap theatrical contacts is not worth the safety of your vision. Do it the right way.
