If I know my prescription, can I just buy my lenses online or do I need to have a doctor varify the prescription?

  • They will have your doctor verify your prescription.

  • I think they want to know that the prescription is current (within one year) and that also takes care of verifying that it's accurate and genuine. Some eye doctors want you to think that they can't give you that info, but the law says otherwise so don't be afraid to ask for it.

  • Go to the site, put in all your information. When you hit send, they will call your eye doctor. If you haven't had an eye check up within 1 year, they won't sell them to you.

  • It's a great savings though. I do it all the time. I get 1 years worth. See if you can find a coupon. They run good specials.
