Is there anyway I can get contact lenses without having a doctor prescription?

I have good vision and only want to use contact lenses for fun, I was intended to get them from the store but they say I need a doctor prescription. How can I get one without having a doctor prescription?

    You can get them from some online stores which don't need the copy of prescription but I will not recommend it .An eye exam is needed before wearing contacts because the doctor will check whether you are irritating to the contacts and the curvature of the cornea are suitable for wearing contacts . He will make sure your eyes are healthy and you don't have any problems with dry eyes and allergies. He also need to teach you how to put them in, take them out, clean them and take care of them .Also you should see that on every contact lens container saying "Federal law prohibits dispensing without a written prescription."

    It is illegal to sell contacts to anyone in the USA without a valid prescription by US federal law carrying a $10,000.00 fine for each offense. So I guess there is no way to get them.
