A full guide to Halloween contact lens safety

Halloween is right around the corner and many people will be looking to purchase some coloured contact lenses for their Halloween looks. While playing dress-up can be lots of fun, getting an eye infection isn’t fun at all.

Halloween give everyone the chance to be fun and creative in a way that you can’t get away with for the other 364 days of the year. So, why not try out some colour contact lenses if you’ve never tried them? Or perhaps opt for a different colour than what you would usually wear, if you wear them daily.

We look at how you can buy the best contact lenses for Halloween and avoid any mishaps.

 

Buy your contact lenses from a reputable supplier

Many high street corner shops and small retailers will stock cheap coloured contact lenses around Halloween time. However, these may not abide by the same safety standards as a reputable contact lens retailer and could put your eyes at risk of an infection. Fortunately, Feel Good Contacts only purchases our lenses from approved contact lens manufacturers, who follow the strictest of safety and quality regulations.

 

Stick to well-known brands

Air Optix Colors also offers this natural looking colour blend, but are made from silicone hydrogel for added comfort and longer wear, perfect for late night Halloween parties.

Acuvue Shimmer and Acuvue Sparkle both help to add definition if you wish to simply add more depth to your eyes as opposed to a colour change.

 

Don’t buy cheap lenses to save money
