If you don't, you might end up buying the wrong diameter/odd curvature and that can really mess with your eyes if you are not careful. Also, you may have astigmatism and not know it so you would need special contacts for that and only an optometrist could really tell if you have it or not.I know that Costcos that have an optometrist does contact measuring/fitting for about $45 I believe (without insurance). It could be upwards to $75 but I don't really remember.As long as you take care of the lenses, your eyes will be fine. I've worn contact lenses for about years now (and recently started wearing colored contacts from circle lens stores) and my eyes are fine. But remember: colored contacts are not a huge deal when it comes to cosplaying. It does add a nifty detail but it is not necessary.
