How Safe Is It To Use Novelty Contact Lenses For Halloween And Other Occasions?

Question: How safe is it to use novelty contact lenses for Halloween and other occasions?

Answer: Well, contact lenses are medical devices, and if they're used improperly they can cause serious problems with the eye. So unless your novelty contact lens is fit specifically for you by someone who knows how to fit contact lenses, it's really taking a risk to use them. Even for just one or two nights, using a product that doesn't fit properly on the eye may cause damage to your eyes.
