  • Caution with Non-FDA approved colored contacts. Complications:  the risks of cosmetic lenses are obvious to the ODs who have seen the ocular consequences, the general population is often unfamiliar with the threats they pose to eye health. Many patients were unaware of the risks and proper instructions for utilization. According to the survey, 1 in 4 patients reported prior use of cosmetic lenses and many had obtained the lenses from unauthorized sources. When questioned about contact lens knowledge, results revealed many patients were not aware of proper wear protocol. A majority of patients did not know that selling contact lenses over the counter and without a prescription is illegal nation-wide. They were also unaware that contact lenses are not 1 size fits all, that parasites can attach to lenses, and that “anime” lenses are not FDA approved. Of the patients surveyed, 62.3% said they were never taught how to clean their contact lenses. Although we may be aware of some of these findings, it is important to examine how cosmetic lenses raise the chances of adverse events (AEs) compared with clear contact lenses. Colored contact lenses pose a higher risk of infection and inflammatory events due to their composition. A recent study examined various cosmetic contact lenses to identify where the pigment was in the layers of the lens. It found that most lenses analyzed contained the bulk of the pigment within 0.4 mm of the surface. The extent of pigment enclosure is not regulated in most countries, but the location affects safety and comfort. Another study found that most contact lens brands failed the rub-off test, leading to detachment of the color pigments. The rub-off test uses cotton swabs to gently rub the front and back surface of the contact lens for 20 second and then measures the amount of color pigment detachment.
