Halloween Safety Month

Halloween is a time of mystery and fun. However, the nature of "Trick or Treating" requires parents and children to take extra precautions.

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