Top Ten Ways to Protect Your Eyes on Halloween

Top Ten Ways to Protect Your Eyes on Halloween


1. Beware of decorative or “costume” lenses. Decorative lenses might include cheap plastic materials or toxic dyes. Also, individuals unfamiliar with wearing contacts may not insert or remove them correctly. You could scratch your cornea, have an allergic reaction, get an eye infection, or even go blind. However, if you insist on wearing contacts for Halloween get a proper examination and prescription from your eye doctor. Visit an eyecare professional immediately if you experience eye redness, vision blurriness, or eye discomfort.

2. Don’t use non-FDA approved makeup. Even hypoallergenic makeup products can cause a negative skin reaction. Watch out for signs of irritation, a skin rash, itching, or minor swelling. You should test a small amount of makeup on your arm a few days before you wear it to make sure it is safe.

3. Don’t sleep in your makeup. Remove all of your makeup before you go to bed to prevent skin irritation by following the directions explicitly stated on your makeup product. For example, the directions may tell you to use a cold cream, or just soap and water.
