cosmetic contact lensesDo you think a change of eye color or a pair of WildEyes will help you create the perfect Halloween costume? Use caution with these lenses. In 2005, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified all contact lenses, whether they correct vision or are used simply for cosmetics as medical devices. In the US, contact lenses cannot be obtained legally without a prescription. Not only do the lenses have to be FDA approved, but so do the dyes. Any product in your eyes or touching your eyes should always be dispensed with a current prescription from your eye doctor. Without proper fitting and care there is a risk of bacterial infection, corneal abrasion and corneal ulcers. Don’t risk your eyesight, if you are interested in colored contacts give the office a call.
