If you want to add a little something extra to your Halloween costumes, the FDA are issuing warnings about colored contacts.

Officials say most colored lenses, like red or white, are illegal and may cause blindness.

The joint operation to get these contacts off the market is called Operation Double Vision, which is aimed toward confiscating contact lenses not approved by the FDA.

Make sure if you do use colored contacts that they are prescribed by a doctor.
