  • Can I use my eyeglass prescription to buy over-the-counter contact lenses?I think that the prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses are not the same. If I remember correctly when I got my contact lenses my doctor told me that the prescription for the glasses I had and the lenses was not the same, but my vision was fine with wearing eyeglasses or lenses.

  • NO!Contact lens prescription can be used for buying contacts from your doctor’s office, the local optical stores and online contact lenses retailers. You need a special eyeglass prescription to order eyeglasses from us. In USA and some other countries, eye doctors are required by “Eyeglass Rule” to release a copy of your prescription after each eye exam at no extra cost. Please ask your doctor to include the PD which is a critical number for us to fit your lenses.

My doctor told me this and to be honest I have lost my eye glass prescription so if I want new glasses I need a new check up. :)
