OK, so I decided on a cool halloween costume this year (Gambit) and want to complete the look as best as possible. So, I would like to find cosmetic contact lenses that would make my eyes look like gambits (all black w a red iris.) I realize I might have to settle for less, but I looked a little bit online and did find lenses that changed the color or the white part of the eye, so I assume it can be done, I just haven’t found the right ones (I’ve found the opposite of what I need, red w/ black iris.)
So my first question is: is there a good place where I can just lok at many many different types of cosmetic lenses?
Second question: Since, as the sites I visited told me, lenses are regulatred by the FDA, a need a prescription to get them, even if they are not corrective lenses. So should I just go to a vision doctor and have him fit me for lenses, telling him upfront that they aren’t corrective, just for size? Will he do that? Or would I ahve to fake bad eyesight so I can get them? Of course, this then leads to worse problems, like the fact that if I fake it too much, I won’t be able to see whenI have the lenses on and may seriously f*ck up my eyesight. If I don’t fake enough, he might just say I don’t need to bother with lenses, so I really shouldn’t take that route, should I? (Last time I had them checked, my right eye was 20/20, my left eye was 20/30 or 20/40, so maybe I might qualify anyway.)
