Dr. Assil at Good Housekeeping advises on the use of colored contacts

  • Always purchase your contact lenses from a specialist who can assess and monitor your usage, even if they aren’t prescriptive.
  • Special effects lenses (like those seen around Halloween) should be even more tightly monitored by a specialist.
  • Your eyes are one of the most important organs on your body — would you really want to skimp on caring for them and risk losing your sight?
