If you are wanting to buy contact lenses without a prescription, do you mean without a current prescription, or without any prescription at all?
If you have no prescription then you should be very wary. The eye is a delicate organ and not one you want to take chances with. If you have no prescription then how do you know what strength lens to order? Or are you trying to get cosmetic contact lenses without prescription? Even if you don’t want lenses to correct your vision, you still need lenses to fit the curvature of your eye and so a prescription of some sort is sensible.
Perhaps you do have a prescription but it is a few years old. It seems reasonable in these circumstances that you should be able to buy contact lenses without prescription if you feel that your eyes haven’t changed, but unfortunately, and certainly in the UK,US and Canada, an up to date prescription is required to buy contact lenses online. This might be annoying but it does make sense as your eye curvature might have changed since your last prescription. An eye test will also pick up on any possible problems in your eyes.
In the end, however much you believe that it’s your right to do what you like with your eyes, it does make sense to have regular check ups and you will find it hard, if not impossible, to buy contact lenses wihtout prescription.
