Contact Lens Safety Awareness Month


Company: Prevent Blindness America
Web site:

October is Contact Lens Safety Awareness Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 45 million people in the United States wear contact lenses. This event serves to educate the public on the best ways to care for their eyes through safe use and care of contact lenses. Contact lens use occurs throughout the year. However, in October around Halloween, people who may not regularly wear contact lenses may choose to use cosmetic lenses as a part of their costumes. Proper hygiene and safety are essential regardless of whether the lenses are decorative or serve a purpose in correcting vision.
