As Halloween approaches, the FDA has a warning for those who want to "dress up " their eyes with decorative contact lens.
Eye care professionals say these decorative lenses which give your pupils, the appearance of a vampire or tiger could also cause ulcers and or even blindness. The FDA's concern is these lenses are used without the approval of a licensed optomologist, although recent legislation has made it illegal to market decorative contact lenses as over-the-counter products.
The FDA suggest you get these contacts from a eye professional, so they can properly show you how to care for your eyes.
