I absolutely need help about lenses, please!

Hi, I hope I could write this here (I'm italian and my english is'n perfect, so sorry if there is any error)

I absolutely need help about contact lenses.
I will cosplay Rinoa on the 3 november, but I have a huge problem: my eyes are green, and her eyes are black.
So I think I could buy black lenses, but here another problem: I am myopic, and I can't find black lenses with vision correction...
Someone can help me? I am desperate...

So... if you come here... you'll find me. I promise.

Just, one more thing... the people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded... Never forget them.

I would ask your optometrist.

Worst comes to worst you can just photoshop your eyes post-processing - it's even done in Hollywood movies. If that's you in your avatar, your eyes look pretty dark and I don't know if contacts would make much difference besides close-up pictures and you can edit those.

I ask my optometrist, and a few other optician, everyone said to me that particular lenses like black, or cat-eyes etc do not exist with the correction, except for a brand, but they are so much expensive.
So I have to keep my natural eyes, hoping that no one notice they are green

Ps. in my avatar yes, it's me, but I've took the photo with a very little light. With more light my eyes are more bright, but I can not do anything, so... I will avoid close-ups photos >.<

did you look at youknowit.com? I dunno how much shipping would be, but they do have black contacts with prescriptions. I was checking them out for white ones.

Pinky Paradise, Honey Color, and YouKnowIt all sell lenses with prescriptions.

Knowing exactly how extreme your prescription is would also help - it can be easy to find lenses with "mild" correction, but they become much harder to find and much more expensive with an extreme one. I was assuming you had an extreme prescription since there are plenty of places to get lenses with mild prescriptions that are easy to find on-line.

I was going to suggest Pinky Paradise. I've been told their contacts are really nice, too. I'm still waiting to get mine in the mail. But yes, they have vision correction.
