(WXYZ) – First of all, never share contact lenses with anyone else.
They are not “one size fits all”, they are made only for you. And never sleep with them either. It’s important to follow the contact lens care directions – every time you wear them you need to clean them with a lens disinfecting solution.
Don’t use water or saliva. Be sure to store them in fresh solution every 7 days. It’s important to take the right steps which will keep your eyes healthy.
Be careful when it comes to obscuring your eyesight
Mask, goggles and tinted glasses can limit your vision. It’s important to see moving cars, people and potential trip hazards, especially at night.
Please don’t wear anything that blocks or reduces your eyesight while driving and I’d recommend you only use these costume accessories while indoors and in well-lit areas.
