    Try clearly contacts. If you have a copy of your prescription they are cheaper and usually have alot of brands.

    The eye doctor? maybe? I don't know about contacts, so really I have no idea.

    Cummins Optical in Westmount Mall. Book an appointment with Ken. You will need a recent script from an Optometrist, even if you have 20/20 vision, I believe, bc of the measurements, but confirm that when you call.

    ETA: You'll need to be fitted for the contacts. Ken used to and may still charge $25 for the fitting, which includes a trial pair (i.e. a pair of coloured contacts that you can take and try out - he'll either order them or give them to you from stock if he has them already). From there you order them like regular contacts - by the box, not the pair. They used to be about $50-100/box I think depending on the brand and that has 3 pairs. If your eyes have different Rx's, you'd have to order 2 boxes, just like regular contacts.

    I got mine from my optometrist. They should have samples for you to try out...

    ALSO! There are 2 different kinds of contacts - one is for people with lighter (i.e. blue/green) eyes called enhancers or something. They make your eyes just more vibrant green or aqua or blue. Then there are opaques which are for people with darker eyes like brown or hazel. Those change the colour of your eyes completely, so make them blue, green, hazel, honey, violet, etc. The opaques cost more than the enhancers.

    And my information is all from about 5 years ago, things may have changed!

    I second clearly contacts. As long as you know your prescription, you can order any contacts you want from them and they have fast delivery.

    I don't need contacts for vision, my eyes are fine, so do I still need a prescription?! When I was much younger (like 15) my friends and I used to wear coloured contacts, a different colour every day for the fun of it.....but I can't remember where we got them.......hmmmmmmmm can I just ask optometrist?! Even though my eyes are fine.......

    You'd likely have to get fitted at your optometrist anyways, but you can for sure get coloured contacts without a prescription, check out Halloween Contacts, Halloween Contact Lenses | Theatrical Contact Lenses | Special Effect Lenses - ClearlyContacts.ca - obviously those aren't for vision correction, LMAO.
