In brief: It is best

To see a specialist who can evaluate the proper fit of the lens and educate you in safety and appropriate wear and lens care.
Taking this lightly can lead to serious consequences and even permanent vision loss.

In brief: Fit & Train

Fitting of contact lenses requires the ophthalmologist to measure the curvature of the cornea to determine the base curve.
If you have not worn lenses before patients are trained how to properly insert, remove and clean the lenses.
