Halloween Safety Awareness


Over the last few years Halloween has become more and more of an opportunity for parties, dressing up and having fun!

There is also a growing trend for elaborate costumes and this includes coloured contact lenses.

Here at Cranford Opticians, we are contact lens specialists and we take eye care very seriously. And while we love the idea of everyone dressing up in costumes and having a great time, we want to make sure safety comes first.

The real Halloween horror stories are those that turn up in the national press every year showing eye injuries caused by poorly made, unhygienic and ill-fitting lenses. Hospitals report a spike in eye-related cases at Halloween and injuries to those under 16 are on the rise.

Prevention is always better than cure, so make sure you enjoy your Halloween parties to the full – and be sure to choose your coloured contact lenses carefully.
