See Eye to Eye With Clients

Posted: March 6, 2009

Cosmetics, such as mascara, eyeliner and concealer, are among the leading foreign objects to enter both girl’s and women’s eyes. According to Dr. Harvey Moscot of Moscot Eyewear and Eyecare since 1915, “The most serious problem related to the application of eye makeup is injury to the cornea (the clear surface in the front of the eye) from either scratching the eye with a fingernail or eyeliner device. Additionally, allergic reactions from preservatives that stop bacterial growth on makeup can also cause tearing, itching, swelling and redness to the eyes. This happens more commonly then you’d imagine.

Following are some helpful tips to share with your clients from Moscot to help prevent any potential injuries, infections or allergic reactions when applying makeup around the eyes.
