Costume Contacts Scarier than they Seem

- NEW YORK, NY --      Public safety experts are warning against using decorative contact lenses when dressing up for Halloween.
    The lenses are used to change the color or appearance of your eyes.
    By federal law -- a prescription is required to buy them.
    But some vendors continue to sell them over the counter.
    The FDA warns consumers not to buy them from novelty shops, salons or online if they don't require a prescription.
    If not used properly, they can cause infections, ulcers and can lead to blindness.
