They can really add a lot to your costume but they can also do some great damage to your eyesight, if you don't know what your getting.

Officials at the Food and Drug Administration's Office Of Criminal Investigations, U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations and U.S Customs and Border Protection are working to seize counterfeit contact lenses, illegally imported decorative lenses and lenses unapproved by the FDA.

Officials say no one should buy contact lenses from Halloween or novelty shops, salons, beauty supply stores, or online without a prescription.

Unapproved contacts in your eyes can lead to corneal ulcers, impaired vision and even blindness.

Your best bet, according to the experts is make sure your decorative lenses are approved lenses, otherwise you don't know what your getting.
