Why You Need a Prescription for Non-Prescription Colored Contacts

Many people, even those who do not require eye correction, like to wear colored contacts to create a different look for themselves. Colored contacts are available in both prescription and non-prescription; however, even when the contacts are not required for vision correction a prescription is still needed. This is necessary because the prescription defines the strength as well as the fit of the lenses. For this reason, a fitting should be done by an eye doctor to ensure the colored contacts do not damage your eye.
