Did you know that contact lenses are medical devices that must be approved by the FDA?
Contact lenses are to be dispensed by a regulated and qualified practitioner. Nowadays, cosmetic contacts are readily available online, in beauty supply stores, tattoo parlours, etc. Unfortunately, a majority of the lenses sold are not FDA approved and may not meet the mandatory performance standards. Side effects of ill-fitting lenses can range from irritation to serious infections.
No contacts are a “one size fits all”!
Take proper precautions when purchasing cosmetic lenses.
