Halloween Safety Month
To avoid a real-life Halloween horror story – going blind because of a costume accessory – the American Academy of Ophthalmology is warning the public against wearing costume contact lenses purchased without a prescription. These illegally sold cosmetic lenses may not be sterile and can cause a host of serious eye problems capable of morphing a fun Halloween night into a nightmare. If these are necessary to complete your Halloween look, we encourage you to ask your doctor for safe alternative color contact lens options! Call us today to schedule your appointment at (828) 264-0042.
