Every year, we see patients who’ve injured their eyes using unsafe contact lenses or costume contact lenses. We want to share a few tips to help make sure you enjoy your Halloween without the creepy eye infection. Eye-ehancing or eye-changing contact lenses can be safe, if you do it right! Follow these easy dos and don’ts and your eyes will thank you.
- Make sure to schedule an eye exam with at our office or your local optometrist to be fitted for all contacts. This ensures that the product you’re purchasing are safe and fit properly.
- When putting in your new contact lenses, make sure you wash your hands before applying your contacts.
- Properly clean and store your lenses after each use. Ask your optometrist for advice on how to clean and store them, or click here to learn our recommendations.
- Buy contact lenses without a prescription.
- Buy at convenience stores, flea markets or retail shops or any other non medical shop. You risk infection and irreversible damage to your eyes.
- Swim while wearing contacts, costume contacts or vision correction contacts.
- Swap or share contacts with others – this is a definite no-no.
- Sleep in your contacts unless they’re specifically designated for that purpose,
- Wear longer than recommended.

We wanted to let our patients know that Bausch + Lomb is recalling their PeroxiClear cleaning and disinfecting solution in the United States and Canada. Below we’ve shared information from Bausch + Lomb regarding the recall and specific UPC codes. If you have questions about whether or not this recall will affect you, please feel free to our offices a call and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
From Bausch + Lomb:
Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall proposed Class II, of PeroxiClear 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting solution in the United States and Canada. PeroxiClear is a specialty contact lens solution with a special lens case and neutralizing disc. PeroxiClear is indicated for soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
Although this voluntary recall represents low risk to the consumer and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company is voluntarily recalling the product from retailers, wholesalers, and eye care professionals out of an abundance of caution and as part of our ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. It is unlikely that we will be able to return the product to the marketplace within 12 months. The company chose to initiate this voluntary action based on internal testing that simulated normal product use. Testing showed occasional occurrences where the residual peroxide remaining in the lens case after neutralization was out of product specification.
PeroxiClear solution is unlikely to cause serious health consequences. If the residual hydrogen peroxide is above product specification the user of the product could experience temporary symptoms of burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences.
This voluntary recall is limited to PeroxiClear only. No other Bausch + Lomb products are affected by this voluntary recall.
