Decorative contact lenses can be a fun way to change your look for Halloween, but before slipping in these spooky accessories, be sure you know how to use them properly and that the lenses are safe.

Decorative contact lenses can be a fun way to change your look for Halloween, but before slipping in these spooky accessories, be sure you know how to use them properly and that the lenses are safe.

Before using corrective or non-corrective contact lenses, patients should receive a medical eye and vision evaluation from an eye doctor to determine if they are viable candidates for lens use. Without signoff from an eye doctor and proper training on lens use, patients can jeopardize the health of their eyes. Risks associated with the improper use of contact lenses include conjunctivitis, swelling, allergic reaction and corneal abrasion due to poor lens fit.

It is also important to purchase the lenses from a reliable source. While the Food and Drug Administration regulates decorative lenses as medical devices, they are often illegally marketed and distributed directly to consumers through a variety of sources, including the Internet, beauty salons and convenience stores. Safe, approved decorative lenses can be purchased at the Spokane Eye Clinic.
