Beware of Illegal Sales of Cosmetic Colored Contact Lenses!

A video segment and website posting from WRAL TV in Durham, NC, (, identifies the dangers of buying cosmetic colored contact lenses from small markets, beauty supply stores, gas stations, and internet sites.  Illegal selling of these contacts has gone on in West Tennessee as well.  You only get one pair of eyes, so please think twice before considering such a purchase!  The FDA governs prescription and sale of contact lenses just like any other drug or medical device, and these contacts must be prescribed by a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist,
