ERICA BARNES CONTACTA 14-year-old New York girl will lose sight in one eye after developing an eye infection from wearing illegal vanity contacts she bought in a local beauty supply store, doctors say.

Erica Barnes, like many teens, bought the cheap contacts in Jamaica, Queens, without much knowledge of the dangers of doing so.

Barnes was told she can use water to clean the lenses, according to PIX11.

“They are dangerous eye candy that our children can buy anywhere,” said Erica’s step-mother, Trina Swain.

Barnes will have undergo a cornea transplant to avoid complete loss of sight.

“I see three to four cases a week of infections. Women are just doing it for the sake of beauty and to look better. They end up almost losing their sight,” said Dr. Jules Winokur, a corneal specialist on the Upper East Side.
