Importance of a Valid Contact Lens Prescription

Many people have found they can find plano colored contacts in different places without a valid prescription.  Just like the circle contacts, these contacts have not been fitted to the person’s eyes and may lead to corneal abrasions, various types of infections and potentially blindness.  The circle contact lenses are not approved for sale in the U.S., but colored contacts in various prescriptions and even in no prescription can be obtained safely and monitored safely by your eye care professional.   The next time you are interested in changing your eye color or trying something new, please call your eye doctor first.  Your eyes will thank you for it.
