You have to get a perscription no matter what. DO NOT get them from a place that dose not requrie a perscription! It's illegal and there is something fishy about any company that dies that. They are all usually a standard size. Some places you can get your perscribtion but you will have to pay a little more rather than just getting a 0.00I noticed that some of the sites have a preset diameter and base curve that they sell for the effects contacts. Will they pretty much fit anyone? Or do you need an eye exam before ordering?
It's a new thing the FDA started about a year or two ago I think. I agree it's a little silly but I guess I can see the saftey factor. You don't want to get bad contacts that are going to damage your eyes or anything like that. I got my exam done at Wall-Mart! lol. The Exam, my perscription, and a pair of one month contacts cost me about $40. Which isn't bad at all.Than i orderd my contacts online and faxed in the perscription. Contacts don't really hurt. If you have never worn them before it's strange for a while but I got used to them at the end of the day. You can't even tell you have them in. Idk how it is with theatrical contacts though. Hopefull my come in tommorow so I can try em out. BUt I herad they are pretty much the same as normal contacts.GDfreak, thanks for the info. I guess I don't quite understand needing a prescription if you just want them for theatrical purposes. Will they hurt your eyes if you don't go get an exam before hand?
