The State Education Department's Office of the Professions has issued a warning to consumers that wearing cosmetic/Halloween contact lenses without first having them prescribed and fitted by an authorized provider can pose serious health risks. These risks (which have been reported by the federal Food and Drug Administration) include:

  • conjunctivitis (an infection of the eye)
  • corneal edema (swelling)
  • allergic reaction
  • corneal abrasion from poorly fitting lenses

Please note that illegal sales of cosmetic/Halloween contact lenses have been discovered in gas stations, beauty salons, flea markets, novelty shops, and internet web sites.
