Novelty contact lenses hurt children as Sask. court case shows
An Edmonton-based toy company pleaded guilty this week to violating Saskatchewan’s Optometry Act when it sold novelty contact lenses that injured children in Moose Jaw and Regina. CMS Famous Toys pleaded guilty to two counts of violating the act in a Regina courtroom, Crown counsel Ian McKay told the Moose Jaw Times Herald. The company was first fined $1,000 in November for improperly selling coloured contact lenses, which is not allowed under Section 23 of the Optometry Act.
