Halloween Costumes Should Mean Good Times,
Not Permanent Eye Damage
With Halloween coming up soon, many parents of school-aged children are planning and preparing for their kids' costumes.
With that in mind, ROE 12 is partnering with the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to alert parents to the dangers of purchasing colored contact lenses from anyone other than a licensed eye care professional. The health risk is serious and most of the customers seeking cosmetic contact lenses are teens and young adults. Permanent eye damage can result!
