In brief: After an eye exam.

Yes. But only if you have an eye exam first by an ophthalmologist or optometrist.
. Buying colored contacts from beauty supply shops or other unauthorized sellers can lead to serious eye problems such as infection.

In brief: Yes

Doing this won't hurt your eyes but if the colored contacts don't have any power, they wont help the vision.
