Buying contact lenses without a prescription?



I have placed orders on 1800contacts and some other website and both have cancelled my order. Anybody else had success ordering contacts without a prescription? I am not paying $100 for an eye exam when it is not necessary.

I know when I order mine they ask for a prescription the first time. They still ask when you reorder but they then have it on file so its all good.

Nobody is going to fill an order without an up to date script.

You can thank crony capitalism for this. Eye doc lobbyists push state legislatures to pass laws requiring eye exams.

It goes against the very concept of liberty, but Americans don't seem to care.

I just always got my contacts at the eye doctor. Is wal-mart cheap for an eye exam?

Your prescription is expired? If not, fax or email them a copy and they'll fill the order. If so, you'll have to get a new one.

eta: 1800contacts always required a new one when my old one expired. I think it was good for 12 mos. Maybe 6 mos. Can't remember.

I used the same prescription at that site for like 6-7 years.

It was a sad day when someone at Walmart finally answered the phone and told them my prescription had expired

I always got mine at the doctor also. I have gone to wal mart twice for exams and they arent too bad. 1800contacts lets you order as many as you want within a year of the last exam. I wasnt close to running out of contancts, but i just ordered 48 contacts which should last a couple years. My vision hasnt changed in 5 years so i don't expect it to anytime soon.

If you have vision insurance your eye exam should be covered.


Why not check to make sure your eyes are the same prescription. Just had mine and my vision has actually gotten better.



Also.....this will always make me get eye exams on a regular basis. Last month cared for a child that broke her glasses so her mom had to take her for another eye exam. Eye doctor saw something weird on the exam, sent her to another doctor.....she has a BRAIN TUMOR!! No other symptoms.....only reason they discovered it so soon was cause she broke her glasses and got an eye exam.

OP, I wouldn't get a new RX unless you want to find out you have brain cancer.

i don't know if you're trolling or not but i agree with what you posted. it's not a controlled substance. why shouldnt you be able to buy whatever contacts you want?
