  • KSSBEO Launches Public Service Awareness Campaign

    The Kansas Board of Examiners in Optometry has developed a public service awareness campaign regarding contact lens safety.

    The Board developed the poster below targeted at teens and young adults. It was designed to educate the reader regarding the dangers associated with contact lenses not evaluated by a licensed eye care provider, particularly "cosmetic" or "theatrical" contact lenses obtained through illegal means. This poster has been sent to Kansas middle and high schools throughout the state.
