Adam Harkness with the BBB says most of those lenses are illegal… FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享If you were thinking of snake eyes for Halloween, health officials are warning that the temporary contacts can have lasting side effects. Terry Horstman with a state regulatory group in Illinois says most of these contacts are made overseas using dye that can be toxic to the eye… “Without a proper examination and fitting colored contacts could cause damage to the eye including blindness.” The FDA says contacts lenses should never be bought without a prescription. Harkness: “According to a recent Food and Drug Administration consumer update, they clearly define contact lenses as medical devices, and all medical devices require a prescription. So, to purchase one of these items without a prescription would be against the law.”
