Theatrical Contact Lenses Safety Tips
Want that great eerie look for your costume that theatrical contact lenses can give you? Who could blame you. Decorative contact lenses are now inexpensive enough to be a great addition to that image you’re after. However, remember that you are dealing with your eyesight, a precious commodity. When you start shopping, here’s some things that you should know to enjoy both your evening and your continued eye health.
Most people can wear decorative contact lenses (also known as plano or non-corrective lenses) but only your eye care professional can determine if they are suitable for you.
The FDA has classified all contact lenses – including decorative ones- as medical devices under FDA's regulatory authority. This was due to the serious risks associated with wearing theatrical lenses without the appropriate involvement of an eye-care professional.
Federal law mandates that all plano theatrical contact lenses require a person to see an eye care professional for an eye exam and to obtain a valid prescription before being able to purchase the lenses.
Follow all instructions for inserting, removing and caring for your lenses and they should continue to be safe and effective until they expire. Eye infections can result from improper care.
Always wash your hands before handling your lenses.
Never use tap water on your lenses.
Do not wear theatrical contact lenses while driving a car or other motorized vehicle.
Don’t sleep with your lenses on. Corneal ulcers have been associated with this practice. Wear them only for the number of hours your eye care professional recommends.
Keep them in containers made for lenses and change the solution every 3 months when not in use. (Some lenses only have a 3 month life after opened so discard them upon expiration)
Never share your lenses with a friend. Sharing contact lenses prescribed for one person can lead to infections, abrasions, allergic reaction or blindness. Saving your eyesight is more important than saving a few dollars.
If you experience any unusual redness, blurriness, discomfort, excessive itching or pain, remove your lenses immediately and consult your eye care professional.
What is a 4th Quality Bucky?
The generally accepted history of Buckys is that Anatomical Chart Company produced (and still produces) plastic educational adult-sized anatomically correct skeletons. They would occasionally produce some that had imperfections but realized that there may still be a market for them. In order to differentiate between the various skeletons available in their catalogs, the skeletons were given names and Budget Bucky was chosen for these defected skeletons. Because this skeleton became so popular in the haunt industry, the name quickly got shortened to Bucky.
ACC now sells a Budget Bucky and a 4th Quality Bucky as well. 4th Quality Buckys can have defects such as misshapen body parts,
