“Be aware of what you are buying and from whom,” advises Michigan City optometrist Laura Zaknoun, OD, who practices at Franciscan Physician Network Coolspring Health Center. “Allow enough time to visit your optometrist and have the fitting to get them ordered in time.”Non-prescription costume contacts can cut, scratch and infect your eye if they don''t fit exactly right. They can lead to allergic reactions, bacterial infections, corneal scrapes or ulcers, and even blindness. The paints and pigments for color lenses also make the contacts thicker and less breathable, possibly allowing less oxygen to the eye.

Don’t share contact lenses or cosmetics with others. Either will spread bacteria and germs.
Use proper contact hygiene.
Do not sleep in costume contacts.
Wash your hands before putting in or taking out your contact lenses.
Apply makeup after inserting the contact lenses.
Keep false eyelash glue, nail polish and remover, and perfume and cologne away from contacts.
Avoid metallic, pearlized or glittery types of eye shadow, which are common causes of eye irritation and infection in people who wear contacts.
Don’t apply eyeliner to the inner edge of the lid or above the lash line on the lower lid.
