Buyer Beware!

  • Even if you have perfect vision, get an eye exam and prescription from an eye care professional such as an opthalmologist - an eye medical doctor - before you buy decorative contact lens.
  • There is no such thing as "one size fits all" contact lenses. Contacts that are not properly fitted can damage the eyes and cause painful infections and vision loss.
  • Only buy decorative contact lenses from an eye care professional or a seller who asks for a prescription.
  • Many decorative conatcts, including circle lenses, are not approved for sale in the United States.

    For more information on the safe wearing of decorative lenses and regular contacts, visit www.geteyesmart.org.
