October Is Contact Lens Safety Month

Now is the time of year when pumpkin spice lattes become available and costumes are on display at retail stores as everyone prepares for Halloween. While it’s fun to have a “frightful” time, it’s the opposite when your eyes get involved. Many people want to complete their look by trying specialty contacts that have various designs like cat eye or zombie red. But contact lenses are medical devices that need to fit properly to ensure the health of your eyes. Misuse of contacts or purchasing contacts from unauthorized dealers can have devastating effects on your vision.

For Contact Lens Safety Month, be aware and be safe when it comes to using contacts. Get an eye exam so we can help you get the right contacts that will provide clear vision and ensure long term health. If you’re looking for specialty contacts to complete your “look”, you can check out our Gothika contact lenses that come in a variety of unique designs.
