Are Halloween and Colored Contacts Safe?
When used in a responsible manner as instructed by our care guide and your eye care professional, with whom you have obtained a contact lens prescription, our Halloween and Color Contacts are extremely safe.
Even though colored contacts can really complete the dramatic character transformation that your cosplay or Halloween costume requires, always remember that your eyes are very precious. Colored contacts have to be treated with the same level of care that a regular contact lens wearer would take when caring for their regular contact lenses. NEVER share lenses with anyone else and NEVER wear someone else's lenses. When lenses are shared, microscopic organisms are transferred between the wearers and serious eye problems can result. There have been cases of individuals contracting serious eye infections after having worn costume contact lenses, but the lenses themselves are not the cause. Most times, the problems have been caused by poor hygiene, improper lens care, or sharing of lenses between friends. Always follow your eye care professional's instructions on care and handling of contact lenses to keep your eyes safe and healthy.
Our lenses are manufactured using the same materials, processes, and in the same machines used to make conventional (clear) contact lenses. They are manufactured, packaged, and sterilized to the highest international standards for contact lenses and are fully in compliance with US contact lens manufacture, packaging, and sterilization regulations. The only difference is that a layer of color is machine printed onto the front surface of the lens. Because the color is on the outside of the lens, the print does not actually touch your eye. The color layer is sealed over with a thin layer of clear contact lens material to ensure that it does not flake off or irritate your eye. If cared for properly and fitted on the advice of a licensed eye care professional, they are perfectly safe for your eyes and are just as comfortable as regular clear contacts.
One word of caution though, color and Halloween contact lenses should not be worn for extended periods of time, usually no more than 8 hours at a time or as recommended by your eye doctor. Because they are slightly thicker than regular contacts, not as much oxygen is able to penetrate the lens and reach your eye. Lenses worn for long periods of time can cause your eyes to become red and irritated. Most people report that they are comfortable if worn for less than 8 hours at a time. If you have very sensitive eyes, you might feel some irritation and discomfort during shorter wear periods. As with regular contacts, Halloween and colored contact lenses need proper cleaning. Always wash your hands before handling your lenses and rinse your lenses with fresh contact lens solution before inserting them in your eyes. Always follow the recommendations of your eye doctor.
Contact Lens Care and Instructions
Disinfecting Your Lenses Before Use:
1. Begin by washing your hands with a NON-CREAM BASED soap and dry with a lint-free towel.
2. Open your new lens package and pour the first lens and storage fluid from the lens case into your palm. Inspect it for particles, deposits, and small cracks or tears.
3. Squeeze several drops of daily contact lens all-purpose solution onto the lens in your palm.
4. Very gently rub one side of the lens with the solution against the palm of your hand using your index finger for about 5 seconds in a straight back and forth motion. Then turn the lens over and repeat the cleaning process, adding a few more drops of solution.
5. Fill your case with fresh contact lens all-purpose solution; place the lens in the storage case to disinfect.
6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 with the second lens.
7. Ensure that the lenses sit in fresh solution for a minimum of 6 hours before wearing them for the first time to guarantee disinfection.
8. Never use homemade solutions, tap water, or anything other than sterile soft lens solution as they may contain organisms that could cause an infection.
Inserting Your Contact Lenses:
1. Begin by washing your hands with a NON-CREAM BASED soap and dry with a lint-free towel. If any cream, lotion, dust, or lint gets on the lens, it can cause irritation, blurriness, or even infection. Also, wet fingers can cause a soft lens to flatten or stick to your finger.
2. Avoid using your fingernails; your lenses are delicate and can tear easily if not handled carefully.
3. Pour the first lens and storage fluid from the lens case into your palm. Inspect the lenses for particles, deposits, and small cracks or tears.
4. Place the lens cup side up on your dry index finger.
5. Check that the lens is not inside out. If it is right side out, the edge of the lens will appear almost straight up. If it is inside out, the edges will flare out.
6. Hold your upper eyelid open and pull your lower eyelid down with your other hand to prevent blinking. Tilt your head slightly back and look up.
7. Place the lens onto the lower part of your eye. Release your eyelids one at a time; lower lid first, and then the upper one. This should slide the lens into place in the center of your eye.
8. It can take a few moments for your eye to become accustomed to the lens. If your lenses feel dry or if your vision is blurred, blink several times or apply one or two comfort drops (eye drops).
9. Repeat this procedure with the second lens.
10. If you work with your lenses near the sink, close the drain. If the lens drops in the sink, you should disinfect the lens again.
* It is advisable to place solution in your lens carrying case and carry it with you at all times. You never know when you may have to remove your lenses.
Removing Your Lenses:
1. Begin by washing your hands with a NON-CREAM BASED soap and dry with a lint-free towel.
2. Place your index finger on the lower eyelid pulling the eyelid down and look up.
3. Touch the lower edge of the lens with the tip of your index finger and slide the lens downward.
4. Squeeze the lens lightly between the thumb and the index finger and then gently remove the “folded up” lens from the eye.
5. If you have difficulty removing the lens, place a few comfort drops in the eye, wait a few minutes, and try again.
6. Upon removal, place the lens in your palm so it is ready to be cleaned.
Cleaning Your Lenses After Removal:
1. You must clean and disinfect your lenses each time you remove them.
2. Squeeze several drops of daily contact lens all-purpose solution into your palm.
3. Very gently rub one side of the lens with the solution against the palm of your hand using your index finger for about 5 seconds in a straight back and forth motion. Then turn the lens over and repeat the cleaning process, adding a few more drops of solution.
4. Rinse the lens thoroughly with more all-purpose solution. Never use homemade solutions, tap water, or anything other than sterile soft lens solution, as they may contain organisms that could cause an infection.
Storing Your Contact Lenses for Disinfection:
1. Fill your case with contact lens all-purpose solution. Place your lenses in the storage case; you must store the lens for a minimum of 6 hours for disinfection to be complete before putting it back into your eye.
2. If a soft lens dries out, it will shrivel up and can break easily. A dried lens can be rehydrated in the recommended solution.
3. Never store soft lenses in tap water, mineral water, or anything other than sterile soft lens solution as there is a risk of infection.
4. Our lenses are designed to be two-week disposable, which means that they should be replaced every 2 weeks if worn daily. They will, however, last in excess of 3 months with occasional use and if handled with care.
