Do you have your Halloween costume ready?  Does it involve those spooky eye transforming contact lenses?  Speciality contact lenses can look great, but if not properly fitted by your Eye Care Professional, your Halloween could turn into a nightmare.  Do not purchase costume contact lenses without a prescription.  It is illegal to sell and dispense costume lenses without a valid prescription and the illegal lenses may not be sterile and can cause serious eye issues.  No matter how cool they look, going blind because of a costume accessory is definitely not worth the 1st place costume trophy.
