HALLOWEEN CONTACTS SAFETY GUIDE
As with other contact lenses, theatrical contact lenses must be cared for properly. Please memorize the following guidelines before wearing special effect contacts
New Federal law mandates all Plano Theatrical Contact Lenses are considered Medical Devices, and as such, require a person to see an eye care professional for an eye exam and to obtain a valid prescription from the eye care professional before being able to purchase said contact lenses online. Be sure to include your Doctor's name and phone # so we can verify your prescription. (Usually within 24 hours) You can also fax us your current prescription at (678) 264-8016. Once verified, your order will be processed and shipped.
We at Haunted Eyes® truly care about you and your vision. Eye exams are not that expensive and well worth the money you spend, considering the well being of your eyesight.
Anyone who would sell you theatrical contact lenses, disregarding the new law, only cares about making money, not the health of your eyes, besides, it's not legal. Please consider that when making your purchase.
Consult your eye care professional for advice on the safe insertion and removal of your Halloween colored contact lenses
