The new rage in fashion makeup is LED eyelashes, a thin strip of LED lights that you stick just above your lash-line.
Harmless? No. Those nifty LED strips can put your eyes at serious risk for damage.
The LED strips do emit UV rays and with the close and constant pressure of the strips being right next to your eye could lead to the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. In addition, the heat generated from the lights can also cause your eyes to become more dry, resulting in irritation. No long-term research has been done regarding the safety of these light-up eyelashes.
Eye care professionals recommend forgoing this latest fashion trend and erring on the side of protecting your vision.*
