"Non Prescription Cat's Eye Contact Lenses--Give Yourself Eight More Lives"

Let's be corny--non prescription cat's eye contact lenses are the cat's meow, and they're made by some of the most reliable manufacturer's of colored contact lenses like Ciba Vision and Coopervision so you can depend on their quality.

But if your vision needs no correction and no prescription for contact lenses, can you purchase cat's eye contact lenses or colored contact lenses no prescription?

Yes--I guess we let that cat out of the bag--and no.


Healthy Eyes Are The Cat's Pajamas

Currently, both the US FDA and Canada Health consider costume contact lenses cosmetic devices and so can be non-prescription if correction is unnecessary. But prescriptions for lenses contain unique information, information that applies to those with perfect vision as well as to those who can't tell yarn balls from hairballs.

Base Curve of the cat's eye lenses, their Diameter, and Brand Name, like Wild Eyes costume lenses by Ciba Vision or Crazy theatrical contact lenses by Coopervision, are all important whether you wear corrective contact lenses or plano (powerless) colored contact lenses.

The fit, type and brand also affect the length of time contact lenses can or should be worn. Wearing cat's eye contact lenses with no prescription is simply not recommended.

Even where retailers are allowed by law to dispense non prescription contact lenses, they may request contact information about your eye-care professional or may ask for a prescription for contact lenses anyway and may even require a copy prior to order. Online retailers of cat's eye contacts, like Eyecolor.com and Coastal Contacts usually take the same precautions.

So have fun, but be careful. You don't want health and safety problems to come raining down like cats and. . . never mind.
