With Halloween around the corner the Food and Drug Administration is warning against one costume element that could be unsafe -- colored contacts.

People use contact lenses to enhance a spooky look, but the FDA says people need to be careful.

Officials say non-prescription contact lenses can cause an infection or perhaps even blindness.

The FDA says do not buy them from a store or online.
