Can I order colored contacts using the same prescription as my non-colored contacts?
I do know that I would have to use the Acuvue 2 Color contacts instead of Acuvue Oasis, BUT wouldn't the prescrition be the same??? The reason I ask is because, I tried to do this [get colored lenses] through my eye doctor shortly after I got my non colored prescription contacts and was told that I would have to do another exam for colored contacts.
This makes no sense to me, and I have talked to other people and some have told me that they didnt have to reexam? I dont understand this and dont want to have to spend the money for another contact eye exam for colored lenses if its not really needed. Also, I dont plan to wear the colored lenses as my primary lens wear, just once in a while. Does color contacts change your prescription? Why would I need to do another exam?
