Zombie Contacts and Your Eyes…

You’ve got your costume prepped and ready, your zombie makeup applied, and now you need to add that perfect final touch — your costume contacts. The right pair of contacts can complete your look, but do you know the risks involved? Not all contacts are the same, and we want to protect you and your eyesight. Let us help you find the perfect, SAFE pair of contacts to complete your spooky look. 

It’s Simple: Contacts are Medical Devices

Whether you want to be a zombie, vampire, or you just want to be free of glasses as part of your costume, all contacts are considered medical devices and are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). To purchase contacts online or in person, a valid prescription is required. This includes the contact lens brand, material, base curvature, diameter, and prescription. If no prescription is required, this may cause you to question the validity of the source from which you buy your contacts. If a company chooses to cut corners in this way, it can lead you to wonder what other corners are being cut (are the lenses created appropriately, stored accurately, is it a sanitary environment?) In today’s world, you want safety and sanitation standards followed every step of the way to ensure your eye health and overall wellbeing. 

Let us help you discover the best contacts to wear on Halloween to not only look your best, but stay safe doing so! Call our office today to schedule your contact lens exam.

What Size of Contact Do You Wear?

If you have ever gone through a contact lens exam, you understand the multiple measurements obtained during the fitting process! The prescription, the curvature, the diameter, and the material itself are all crucial aspects to determine when fitting contacts to ensure your overall health and safety when wearing the lenses. If a lens curves too much, it can cut the amount of oxygen getting to the eye. If the material is too thick it can cloud the cornea, resulting in blurry vision. During your Vision Specialists contact lens exam, we take all the necessary measurements to fit you in the best pair of contacts to protect your vision from lifelong complications. We care about you and your wellbeing which is why we take the utmost care to fit you in the best contacts for your eyes to keep them healthy and looking spooky!

Your Vision. Your Future. How to Protect Your Eyes While Wearing Contacts.

Once you’ve received your contact lenses, it’s important to take care of them to protect your eyes from potential harm! At Vision Specialists, we walk you through the do’s and don’ts for contact lenses so you don’t have to worry about damaging your eyesight. Before handling contact lenses, it is very important to remember to wash your hands, especially during the COVID pandemic. Take care not to rub your eyes while wearing contacts and make sure to use a proper contact lens solution (such as BioTrue, ClearCare, or OptiFree). When not replacing your lenses daily, make sure to use fresh solution at night and store your contact lens case dry throughout the day. Lastly, do your best to not sleep in your contacts and replace them as directed by your eye care provider. Overwearing your contacts can lead to sight-threatening conditions such as bacterial keratitis or corneal ulcers which can result in permanent sight loss. At Vision Specialists, we care about your sight for the future and make it our priority to help you see your best and develop healthy contact lens habits.
