I need to know where I could buy contact lenses. I don't want to buy them online thought I want it know what stores I could buy them at. And they have to be non prescription.
Non prescription? Why would you need contacts then?
Because I want them to be colored contacts
You could try going to an eye doctor's office or calling them first & asking if they have any!
Smoke shops normally sell them
Um...do not put crap into your eyes without seeing a doctor. I've been wearing contacts for many years, and there is definitely a learning curve (you will seriously hate your life if you put a contact in backwards, for instance). You can buy colored contacts from optometry stores, but please please please have your eyes checked first.
Yes please see an eye doctor. You have to make sure you are fitted with the right type. If you do not have a good fitting contact you can damage your corneas.
Coastal.com! I do agree that you should see an optometrist before using contacts, even if you don't have a prescription. You've only got two eyes and contact lenses are a very easy way to damage them. Be careful!
^ smoke shops do have them & walmart vision center have the colored contact demos
Talk to your eye doctor

I personally wear prescription lenses and I hate them, I don't see why u would want them
I bought my circle lenses from Honeycolor.com and all of my costume lenses from YouKnowIt.com. Please see an optometrist first just to be safe! Non-prescription costume lenses are technically contraband in the United States, which is why they cost so much more here than abroad.
And yes, putting one in inside out is one of the WORST FEELINGS IN THE WORLD. I felt like I was trying to put sandpaper in my eye.
I'd stay away from colored contacts you buy in store unless they come from a place that sells regular prescription contacts as well. Places like smoke shops and cheap shoe stores have very low quality color contacts that can actually damage your eyes. There are places online, as others have mentioned, that are reputable places to buy. Contacts are not very safe, and you need to be very careful. Don't just rush into it- do a little research first
