But how come in some states its safe to give a prescription for 2yrs and in other states its only safe for a prescription to be valid for 1?
The eye doctors want you to come in yearly for an eye test so they can at least get that much money out of you!!!
The eye doctors here charge you to place new lenses in old frames ($10-$20 depending who you see)!!!

At your eye exam, you should have been given a card with your perscription & date on it.
Out here they try their hardest to deny you a copy of your prescription!!!
They claim they are medical records and you can't have it!!!

Contact lenses are prescribed based on eye shape, tear production, size and general feel.

-Tzale
Contact lenses are based on size (diameter, curve), power, and astigmatism (if you have one).
A perscription can mandate a certain type/brand of contact lenses, mine have never mandated that. Mine just has the numbers which I enter into 1800 contacts and buy whatever I want.

Also, the only reason they have laws for 1 year or 2 year perscriptions is because if the contacts are somehow doing something bad to your eyes an eye doctor can catch it and stop you from buying that brand/type again.
I have no idea what would hurt your eyes without causing you discomfort or pain, but for some reason they do not trust you to know if your contacts are hurting you.

The perscription laws are probably there to make sure eye doctors make money. I would bet they did a lot of lobbying to get that mandate after they were forced to give patients their perscription.

If they refuse to give your perscription they are breaking the law.

The law can be found here:

You can report your eye doctor here:

I don't understand why you need a script to buy contact lenses. If I know what type I need then why can't I just buy them? It's not like you can OD on contact lenses or turn them into drugs or anything like that.
I agree with you. However, you know that if there wasn't that restriction that someone would end up suing because they bought what they "thought" was right and they ended up going blind.

Re: Contact lens without prescription

I find that the easiest way to get them is by having 30/30 vision, and not needing them at all.

The answer is "Canada." Go to Google and type in "buy contact lenses Canada."

This is off topic, but buy this book so you don't have to wear contacts anymore.

reply to joako

If you live in US & Canada, try globallens.ca. Because they're based in Canada, it takes up to 10 days to ship to US, but still they'll send them to you without presecprition and they certainly don't need your doctor's info!

Same here. Lasik in 2000, never needed lenses or glasses again.
