Halloween Safety

Be safe on Halloween

To avoid a real-life Halloween horror story—going blind because of a costume accessory—the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 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.

For more information, contact: AAO | 415.561.8534 | www.geteyesmart.org
