Take proper care for your Halloween and coloured contact lenses.
It doesn’t matter if they are coloured or Halloween contact lenses. If you are going to use them you must take proper care. Wash them with disinfectant solution, never touch them without washing your hands and keep them safely in their cases.
Don’t wash your lenses with water or another home made solution.
Never washes your coloured or Halloween eye contact with water. Water unlike disinfectant solution have micro-organism in it and they can stick on your Halloween lenses. Once you put on your eyes they will cause discomfort and they can even cause infection. Also never use home made solution, you never know what those solution are made of.
If you accidentally sleep in them, don’t try to take them off right away.
Yes you heard that right, you cannot sleep whille you are wearing your coloured or Halloween contact lenses. You need to take them off before you go to bed. That is because contact lenses hinder the allowance of oxygen and because of that your eyes dry up. And if you slept like that your eye will get even drier and the lenses may stick on the eye surface. This will probably cause corneal abrasion.
But if by chance you forget to take them off and slept away. Never take them off immediately, first re-wet your eyes with eye drops and then take them off. After that you must consult with your doctor immediately
