FDA Approved Contact Lenses
You’ll be happy to hear that the FDA regulates decorative contact lenses in order to certify lenses as fit for purpose, for your eye safety. So, get ready to see some eye-catching colours and designs, safe with the knowledge that your eyes are our number one priority.
At Blue Banana, all our contact lenses available are FDA approved for your satisfaction. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Eye care is incredibly important to us, so we think it is important to share information about the safety designs of our lenses.
What are FDA Approved Decorative Contact Lenses?
Unlike clear prescription lenses, our contacts are purely decorative. Our non-prescription lenses are not designed to help you correct vision, but they are designed to help you look fantastic! We also stock a range of prescription styles which will give you clear vision and a cool colour change – be sure to check with your optician which corrective strength you need.
The FDA classes decorative contacts as medical devices, so they must be assessed with this in mind. You should never buy contact lenses, decorative or otherwise, that haven’t been checked and approved by the FDA in the states. Lenses from retailers without an FDA Approval aren’t guaranteed to be sterile or made from suitable materials.
When you shop with us, you don’t need to worry about the composition of your lenses. We make sure our lenses are made from soft breathable materials that will keep your eyes hydrated.
We’ve made it super simple to find a huge range of lenses that are approved by the FDA in one place. From spooky Halloween lenses to simple colour-changing lenses that will transform your look; all our lenses are for decoration only and approved by the FDA.
Although our FDA approved coloured contact non prescription lenses are not for improving your eye-sight, it’s still important to read the fine details and understand what you’re buying. So, we’ve made the dimensions, coverage and duration of each of our lenses clear so you will know if they’re a good choice for your eyes. You can also find out exactly how our decorative lenses will affect your eyesight, for example whether the style will cover your iris and pupil or just your iris.

Our Best Tips for Safe Coloured Contacts: Non Prescription
We have worked super hard to make our contacts perfectly safe and FDA approved – but now it’s in your hands to make sure you wear and store your contact lenses safely. Here are a few of our best must-read tips to get the most from your FDA approved coloured contacts.
Never share your contact lenses with other people. Spreading bacteria is obviously a bad thing. Plus, some prescription decorative lenses might not be suitable for your eye shape or sensitivity.
Do see your eye doctor (optometrists are qualified to prescribe contact lenses) if you are worried about wearing contact lenses or want to get a prescription.
Do disinfect and clean your contact lenses after wearing them, by following the instructions included with your contact lenses and lens solution.
Don’t keep your contact lenses for longer than is stated in the instructions. It’s not safe to continue wearing contact lenses for days when they were only designed to be worn for 1 day.
And, of course, if your eyes start to feel irritated in any way, make sure you take out the contact lenses and if necessary, seek medical help.
Just like our hair dye, cosmetics and varied accessories, remember to read the instructions and follow them closely for the best results. In every situation, your eye safety must come first. With our FDA approved decorative contact lenses you can soon be enjoying new eye colours, armed with all the right knowledge and information!
