I found some sites in the UK that don't mind if you do not have a prescription for contacts. Probably any sites overseas will be more open minded about the whole process.

In my opinion, I think having to have a prescription for contacts is ridiculous. I have yet to hear about anyone overdosing on contacts.

Where can you buy contacts without your Dr prescription?

You would have to order online from a foreign (ie, non-United States) source that did not require a current valid prescription. This is generally not advised as reputable companies that sell safe products in the US will require a prescription. The concern would be that a disreputable company would take your money and either not send you the contacts, send you the wrong contacts or send you outdated or contaminated contacts. This would be a "buyer beware" situation.

In fact yes.., Because after exposing your eyes to contacts for 2-6mos.The cornea should be re-evaluated as well as the quality of tears, But some of the patients go directly to buy contacts without prescription.. As an eye doctor I'll recommend to go for an eye examination first before buying any contacts and let the liscensed optometrist / ophthalmologist decide on which specifications or brands will fit in your eyes.

Where can you get contact lenses without a prescription?

If the contact lenses are for improving sight then you do need a prescription. If the contacts are for changing eye color then you can get those just about anywhere. For example, the Korean wig store at the B&I sells them at a good price. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Actually in the US any contact lenses, even plano or zero power contacts, are considered medical devices and as such require an eye examination, proper fitting and a current doctor's prescription to legally purchase even cosmetic contact lenses. See the related links section for more information on the rules regarding buying contact lenses without a prescription in the US. I 'improved' this answer more than a year ago and the above is still correct however I've since learned that the current US Rx laws in place regulate only the US based seller and not the buyer. So if the buyer has an expired prescription and finds a source outside the US they buyer can indeed get contact lenses without a prescription and not do anything illegal in the process. As to 'where' if you Google deep enough you can find links to plenty of sources in Canada and the UK that ship prescription contact lenses world wide and don't perform prescription verification.
