Contact Lens Safety

Contact Lens Safety

As with other contact lenses, theatrical contact lenses must be cared for properly. Please memorize the following guidelines before wearing special effect contacts .

***Important Notice***

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. If you fail to provide doctor's information, your order will be placed on hold and we will not ship until we verify your prescription.

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.

Always wash your hands before inserting, removing or handling your contact lenses.

Use only the lens disinfection regimen recommended by your eye care professional.

Never use tap water on your lenses.

Never share your lenses with anyone. This can lead to infection and the spread of disease.

Never sleep with your lenses on. Wear them only the number of hours recommended by your eye care professional.

Have your eyes examined every year.

Do not wear theatrical contact lenses while driving a car or other motorized vehicle.

If you experience any unusual redness, blurriness, discomfort, excessive itching or pain, remove your lenses immediately and consult your eye care professional.
