We will provide you with a copy of your unexpired glasses or contact lens prescription. According to federal and state law, your prescription can expire after one year.  There is a button on our website to request an email copy of your RX. We do not release prescriptions to other optical companies. We are often asked to provide professional measurements, like your PD and bifocal height. Since these are dependent on how your frames fit your face, we only measure these when you buy glasses from us. In Indiana, these are not a part of your prescription and do not need to be released.

My Perspective as an Eye Doctor

It never ceases to amaze me how many people only consider price when purchasing glasses. You use your eyes every single day to earn your living and enjoy your life. Many people will spend lots of money on other things but will try to save a few dollars on their glasses.Knowing how important your vision is, this has never made sense to me.
