Anyone know where to buy cheap prescription glasses online even if your prescription is out of date?

I took a shower this morning and my two year old got a hold of my glasses and irreparably broke them and now I am wearing my old glasses but they are sure to give me a headache since they are like 5 years old. I don't have the money to go to an eye doctor so I thought someone might know where to buy glasses online....

  • I don' t think they can sell you prescription lenses if your prescription is over 1 year old. You can get glasses but no lenses, not without an exam.

  • You won't find any place (legal anyways) that will make glasses if your prescription is more than one year old. However, I have found that Wal-Mart SuperCenter is pretty inexpensive compared to other places and they offer cheaper priced frames, etc. Good luck!

  • You can't get glasses without a current scrip. I tried. Sucks but it's for your own good really.

  • Have you tried applying for medicaid? Also Our plans offer discounts to see an eye Dr. I know where you can new eye glasses for $8! My State worker told me about them.
