Thank you for your question:

Blincon is not a approved by the FDA for sale in the USA. Here is a link to the FDA website that lists all FDA approved contact lenses.

There are dozens of similar lenses available (FDA approved). Your local eye care professional (optometrist or ophthalmologist) could help you find the best replacement product.

I understand. Unfortunately, the Blincon lenses are not FDA approved for sale in the USA. The sites that are selling these are located outside the USA. Without FDA regulation and oversight, the safety of these lenses can not be determined.
