Protect Your Eyes on Halloween
- Posted on: Oct 7 2013
With Halloween approaching, the American Optometric Association is warning people about the risks of wearing contact lenses without a valid prescription and proper medical evaluation. Over-the-counter purchased contacts can put people at risk for bacterial infections, allergic reactions, including irreversible vision loss.
However, if you insist on wearing contacts for Halloween get a proper examination and prescription from your eye doctor. Visit an eyecare professional immediately if you experience eye redness, blurry vision, or eye discomfort.
