Decorative contacts are not “dress up”, they are a medical device that can be dangerous. Purchasing these contacts from a seller that does not ask for a prescription is illegal and unsafe.
If you want to take your costume from “cool” to “amazing” with decorative contacts, then find a local optometrist and schedule an eye exam with a contact lens fit.
Here are a few other safety tips:
- Check your child’s costume mask for any sharp edges or loose pieces. A scratch to the face or eyes can be very painful
- Use hypoallergenic makeup around the eyes
- Bring a washcloth to wipe away makeup that might get into your child’s eyes as they are running around
- Be visible to others
Be safe and have fun this Halloween season.
