A Safety Tip for Your Eyes!
The American Academy of Ophthalmology shares monthly eye care observances. Check out this month's safety tip and protect your eyes!
"To avoid a real-life Halloween horror story – going blind because of a costume accessory – the American Academy of Ophthalmology is warning the public against wearing costume contact lenses purchased without a prescription. These illegally sold cosmetic lenses may not be sterile and can cause a host of serious eye problems capable of morphing a fun Halloween night into a nightmare."
