Halloween is around the corner and so must be the preparations. Costume contact lenses are just as safe to wear as traditional contacts but negligence from customers and failing to meticulously look after costume contacts push emergency ocular units at hospitals to witness a soaring number of patients at Halloween.

Therefore, the importance of costume contacts & what they can do to your costume can not be questioned. Unfortunately they are widely misused & hence are associated with ocular sores & abrasions.
Why are Costume Contact Lenses Frequently Misused?

Even people with no prior experience with traditional contacts fall for costume contact lenses who take them for granted, share their crazy lenses with friends, rewet them using saliva & what worse continue to wear them even after they have expired.
Costume lenses usually last 8-10 months even if they are labelled to last you 12 months. Everything affect the life span of contacts from environmental factors to how & where you store them. Just like traditional contacts, costume contact lenses will shrink and cringe if you leave them unchecked for more than a week.
