A female asked:
If you are looking for colored contacts just for halloween, do you still need to see an eye doctor to get them fitted and then order them?

Yes: You need to see your eye MD to get fit for size. Then you can order any fun costume contacts. Some also have corrective power in them. Happy Halloween! Have fun!

Best through Dr.: Contact lenses for Halloween, like any other contact lens, is best when properly fitted over a healthy eye. They can be ordered in the grey market but you can never be sure about them and it is your eyes that will receive them.
