LAS VEGAS — With a new coronavirus epidemic sweeping through the U.S., Americans have been using a wide variety of contact lenses to protect their eyes.
Many of the most popular ones come with a built-in camera that lets people see what their eyes are doing, according to the company that makes them.
One of the best-known brands is Revlon.
Its Revlon Contact Lens Collection includes a variety of brands such as Revlon Lenses, Revlon Ultra-Long-Eye and Revlon Ultrawide.
The company is selling them for $4,800, according the company’s website.
But Revlon says its Contact Lens Program does not guarantee a positive result.
Its contact lens program includes a program called the Eye Safety Program that encourages consumers to report any problems that may be associated with contact lenses and the company recommends consumers seek professional medical advice before getting a new prescription, the company said.
But the company has been under fire from some of its own employees and customers who say it’s promoting unsafe products.
“This program is an irresponsible, unsafe practice that puts the consumer and the health of others at risk,” Revlon said in a statement on Wednesday.
