Blue/Gray contacts

I'm cosplaying Kageyama from Haikyuu!! for Katsucon and Otakon and I'm all for getting contacts but I've never needed to wear contacts for any of my past cosplays so I haven't had experience with them. I just had a few questions!

1. I already wear contacts and I know my BC, diameter, and correction for each eye -- do I still need to see my eye doctor?

2. Where should I get a pair that will last a year? (I have tried pinky paradise and they had issues with me choosing my prescription for literally any color I would be okay with, lensvillage also has had very bad reviews for the past year and I don't want to buy from them)

3. Are there any US-based companies that sell colored contacts?

Thank you for the help ^^

I can answer two of your questions!
1. if you've seen your eye doctor within the past year or so and your contact prescription is still valid, then you don't need to see them again. You already know how to care for contacts and have the correct prescription.

3. Other than Acuvue and Freshlook Color Blends, you probably won't find a US-based colored contacts brand. That's because the US FDA has not approved circle lenses, thus they aren't supposed to be sold here, and there's so many laws in place dealing with contact lens sales.

I've personally had great experiences with pinkicon and iszocirclelenses. There are a few US owned brands but they aren't circle lenses but if you only care about the color you can go to freshlook.
