A 'bad romance' between eye-popping contact lenses and optometrists

Lady Gaga peers at the camera through exaggerated, gargantuan eyes on her Bad Romance video.

Seen here on her music video, her buggy eyes have reportedly set off a trend among teenagers who seek to stretch their eyes to cartoonish  sizes.

These contacts, called circle lens, cover more than the pupils to include the whites of the eyes, making them appear bigger.  They’re also illegal in the United States.  But that’s not stopping the Internet trade.

Lady Gaga did not wear contacts for her appearance on her music video.  The eye-popping effect was generated by a computer, according to the New York Times.

Optometrists aren’t quite pleased with the fad in decorative lenses, something that comes up around the Halloween season too.

The American Optometric Association warns that “consumers who purchase lenses without a prescription or without consultation from an eye doctor put themselves at risk of serious bacterial infection, or even significant damage to the eye’s ability to function, with the potential for irreversible sight loss.”

Here are other risks associated with the improper use of decorative contact lenses: conjunctivitis (swelling or infection of the membrane lining the eyelids), swelling, allergic reaction and corneal abrasion due to poor lens fit, reduction of sight, contrast sensitivity and other general eye and vision impairments.

    การที่จะใช้สเต็ปนี้นั้น เราจำต้องมองห้องหน้าล็อบบี้ก่อนว่าในห้องนั้นๆมีเค้าไพ่ลักษณะแบบใด และมีเค้าไพ่ที่มีลักษณะแบบคู่ไหม รวมทั้งจะใช้ได้ตอนไหนที่เค้าไพ่สเต็ปนี้เริ่มเผยตัวออกมา พวกเราจะมายกแบบอย่างกันว่าควรที่จะใช้แนวทางนี้อย่างไร
    สเต็ป3-3 ขั้นแรกเลยคือพินิจที่เค้าไพ่ล่าสุดว่ามีเค้าไพ่ที่ออกมาเรียงกัน3ไม้หรือเปล่า หากออกมาในลักษณะนี้ จัดแจงวางเครดิตตัดสวนได้เลย ตัวอย่างเช่น สีแดงออกมาแล้ว3ไม้ ไม้ที่4-6ตัดสวนด้วยอีกฝั่งได้เลย
    ซึ่งมันก็คือ สีน้ำเงิน

    เพราะเหตุว่าสเต็ปนี้เพราะเหตุใดถึงมีกำไรมากยิ่งกว่าปิงปอง betflix เพราะปิงปองจะออกสลับกัน1-1
    แต่สเต็ป2-1-2นั้น ราวกับเป็นการเบิ้ลของใงใดฝั่งหนึ่งนั่นเอง ยิ่งเริ่มด้วยฝั่งน้พเงินด้วยแล้ว พวกเราจะได้กำไรเต็มๆดอก เพราะว่าเราจะไม่โดนหักค่าน้ำ และเป็นการได้กำไรแบบคูณ2เลยก็ว่าได้ แถมตบด้วยสลับไปอีกฝั่งวางเดิมพัน1ไม้ตัดด้วยอีกฝั่งเบิ้ล2ไม้ ซึ่งสเต็ปนี้สนุกมากมายๆในหมูเซียนบาคาร่า หรือ ผู้เล่นที่เคล็ดวิธีพราวแพรว บอกเลยว่ายังไงก็คุ้มค่าที่ได้ใช้สเต็ปนี้
