Top Ten Ways to Protect Your Eyes on Halloween

Make-up, face-paint, colored contacts, false eyelashes – Halloween can be pretty scary when it comes to eye health. This October, VSP Vision Center wants to offer you tips on how to ensure that your families’ costumes not only look great, but also support healthy vision.

VSP Vision Care, the nation’s largest not-for-profit vision care company, put together a list of tips and tricks for creating costumes that keep your eyes healthy. For example:

·         Don’t dye eyebrows or eyelashes
·         Don’t use non-FDA approved makeup
·         Don’t wear decorative or “costume” contact lenses (which are illegal to sell)

Here are 3 Top Tips below  VSP Vision Care wants you to be aware of so everyone will have a Safe and Happy Halloween!  Please read more tips at VSP Vision Care

1.. Beware of decorative or “costume” lenses. Decorative lenses might include cheap plastic materials or toxic dyes. Also, individuals unfamiliar with wearing contacts may not insert or remove them correctly. You could scratch your cornea, have an allergic reaction, get an eye infection, or even go blind. However, if you insist on wearing contacts for Halloween get a proper examination and prescription from your eye doctor. Visit an eye care professional immediately if you experience eye redness, vision blurriness, or eye discomfort.

2. Don’t use non-FDA approved makeup. Even hypoallergenic makeup products can cause a negative skin reaction. Watch out for signs of irritation, a skin rash, itching, or minor swelling. You should test a small amount of makeup on your arm a few days before you wear it to make sure it is safe.
3. Don’t sleep in your makeup. Remove all of your makeup before you go to bed to prevent skin irritation by following the directions explicitly stated on your makeup product. For example, the directions may tell you to use a cold cream, or just soap and water.

PRODUCT REVIEW: SUPER WUBBLE BUBBLE BALL!

"Super Wubble is up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant than the original Wubble Bubble Ball. Made with a new super stretchy material called Xpandium, it’s super smashable and super squashable. Bounce it, throw it, kick it, smoosh it, smash it, even sit on it!"

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
