Halloween is upon us soon and we would like to caution our patients against buying and using illegal colored contacts purchased online, flea markets or anywhere not requiring a valid prescription.

The risks of a poorly fitted contact and risk for serious eye infections outweigh the benefits of purchasing these illegally.

Both the FDA and CDC have warnings against illegal colored contacts that are being sold at online and in-store retailers that do not require a prescription.

We fit all sorts of colored (Air Optix Colors, Desio, Solotica) and theatrical contacts (Gothika) all year long.

If interested, feel free to contact us today for an appointment at (323) 720-1600 or schedule online!
