A recent warning was issued about the potential danger of wearing illegal coloured contact lenses. Some government officials strongly discouraged people from buying coloured contact lenses on retailers that are not licensed. This warning was issued by the government as a response to the increasing number of cases of individuals whose eyes were put into risk as a result of buying these lenses from unlicensed eye care retailers.
Most of the reported cases were eye infections, but there are also a few who suffered from blindness. The coloured contact lenses are becoming popular among teens now, due to the influence of some famous Hollywood personalities. Because of this, coloured contact lenses can now be easily bought from the malls and even flea markets.
