Does anyone here do that? I just realized that I am fresh out of spare lenses since I have been wearing my regular glasses for the past few months. I called my local eye doc to see about ordering a few new boxes of these things and the receptionist said, "Oh, looks like you had your last eye exam 13 months ago, we can't order you new ones until you have a new eye exam." This is slightly annoying because my prescription hasn't changed in years and I can see everything perfectly without any haziness when wearing the contacts I still have and my glasses. I went on 1800contacts.com and read that it is a federal minimum for prescriptions to last 1 year and that some states allow for 2 years. Now, I will clearly give the eye place the benefit of the doubt that the prescriptions in Louisiana last only 1 year. But if anyone knows how to check on that it would be appreciated. I started thinking about this some and remembered being in Spain a few years back and needed some new contacts. Over there I just walked into the store, told them my prescription, and 2 min. later they handed me what I wanted no questions asked. So is it really necessary to go through the hoops of wasting time, energy, and money just to get a couple new boxes of lenses that I know are perfectly fine? What say you guys/gals?
