FDA stands for Food And Drug Administration. It is a system used by the U.S. to determine if a product is suitable for medical purpose or its intended purpose. FDA Approved products have been assessed and it has been decided the benefits outweigh the potential risks. The FDA approved coloured contact lenses sold by Coloured Contacts feature safe materials as well as awesome designs.
If you are searching for information by the FDA about using cosmetic contact lenses then remember that they refer to contact lenses as decorative contact lenses. This is under a different section and features a different set of criteria than prescription contact lenses.
All the products in this section of our website carry an FDA Approval. Here at Coloured Contacts, we always put safety first. When you are using contact lenses bear in mind the potential risks that can come with using a product that is not FDA approved.
If you take a product code you can search on a list of FDA approved contact lenses which will verify that our products carry this mark.
The non prescription coloured contacts we sell are for changing your eye colour and not for correcting vision but under the FDA all contact lenses are considered to be medical devices which is why it is essential for us to stock lenses that are FDA approved. We always put your eye health at the centre of our business which is why you can find more information about how to use your lenses and when not to use contact lenses across our site.
If you are planning on using prescription Halloween contact lenses you will require an RX check when purchasing products in the US. This is when the seller i.e. Coloured Contacts verifies with your optometrist or optician that the information you have submitted about your prescription is correct.
There is always a small amount of risk when using any contact lenses but in order to care for your eyes properly and ensure your lenses are fit for purpose there are a few things you can do:
The risks of using contact lenses are not there to scare you but are there to educate you so you can make an informed decision about whether your eyes are suitable for contact lenses, with the help of your optometrist, and which lenses would best suit you.
Every year, especially during Halloween we see reports warning us about fake contact lenses so all you need to remember is to look out for an FDA Approved contact lens.
As you can see an FDA approval means many things for our products. The most important being that it will give you peace of mind that our FDA approved coloured contact lenses are fit for purpose.
