JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Color contacts are used to give you a different look. Say - Blue eyes when your eyes are brown. But if you don't get them from a doctor and use them correctly, you could do serious damage to your eye. And one local store had the lenses on the shevles.
A local Optician contacted First Coast News after one of his patients saw the lenses at a gas station.
"She had noticed a teenager purchasing contacts at a gas station. And she said hey, is this legal? It doesn't seem legal," said Vice Cottone, an Optician.
In Florida it's a felony to sell contact lenses without a prescription.
Cottone thought it was so serious, he went out to the gas station himself.
"Went out there and checked it out, and sure enough they were selling contact lenses at a gas station," he said.
