no, not if you don't need prescription lenses. If your vision is fine, regular non prescription contacts will work fine.

but i heard that if youre going to put something in your eye it has to be with a prescription, it can be dangerous. I want to buy the freshlook colorblends because they look natural and only that brand, but when i try to buy them they ask for a prescription.

If you don't need glasses, or are going to wear glasses with the contacts, they usually have an option for no prescription which may show up as 20/20 or as +0.00 or -0.00. But they usually do have an option for you to pick that does not affect your eyesight. Also, read the instructions carefully. You need to be sure if you can keep them in over night if you plan on it because with most you need to take them out every night, but with a few brands you can wear them non-stop until they are said to be no good anymore. Also pay attention to how long the instructions say they will last, as I don't know of any that last for more than 3-6 months.

Personally, I'm against contact lenses.
But as others said, you can buy the ones which don't affect your vision. And yeah, read the instructions carefully.

You're not supposed to wear contacts when you don't need them. A girl either went blind or severely damaged her eyes by doing that.

But I guess if you really feel the need to, make sure you clean them properly every day, with the right solution.

I just don't think it's wise to be sticking things in your eyes when they're not supposed to be there.

Colored contact lens are supposed to be safe as long as they are used as instructed and used with sanitizing solution. There is no reason it should harm your eyes unless you use non hygienic ways, such as leaving them in for days when they should be only worn for 12 hours, or not cleaning your hands before placing them in your eyes, etc.

As others said, there should be an option for non prescription. If you are having trouble finding that, try to ask your eye doctor about it or another brand that is similar.

I disagree with youive heard that you can wear colored contact lenses if you want with a prscription if you go to freshlook.com they have them and you dont have to need them in order to get them. By the way i do need glasses thats what my eye doctor told me last time i checked

Re: If i want to get colored contacts - March 15th 2012, 03:09 AM

Okay, So i had colored contacts for like a year, on and off, and they dont affect anything. As long as you're not wearing glasses with them, you'll be fine.
I bought them at a local clothing store, they have them in the glass boxes where you pay that they keep jewelry and plugs and such.
But here are some tips for if you do get them:
1: Never put them in while wearing fake nails, it rips them, and when they rip, they wont readjust in your eye.
2: Put them in FRESH solution that they give you morning and night
3: Always check for rips, like I said in number one, if they rip, its dangerous to put them in.
4: Be sanitary and be careful (:
