Retailer Sells Contact Lenses after Warning
"A hidden camera investigation reveals local stores are selling colorful contact lenses illegally. The popular Halloween accessories can damage your eyes and aren't supposed to be sold without a prescription. But some stores aren't getting the message," reports ABC News in WVZN. "Since we first explored the dangers of the contact lenses, two stores yanked them from their shelves after we told them it's against state law to sell them without a prescription. While in one of the stores with a hidden camera, the clerk pulled the lenses from behind the counter. They were for sale for only $15. It was the same thing at another convenience store. And we confronted the owner of the Super Stop on Fowler Street in Fort Myers after buying a pair for $29. No prescription was needed." Read and see more.
