Why does my prescription need to be verified?

Verification of contact lens prescriptions is completed to help maintain our customers’ eye health, and comply with the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act. This law requires that optometrists and ophthalmologists give patients a copy of their prescriptions after a fitting and verify those prescriptions to any third party designated by the patient, such as an online lens seller. This protects patients by ensuring that their prescriptions are current and valid.

Can an eyeglass prescription be used for a contact lens prescription?

Eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens prescriptions are not the same. A contact lens prescription includes contact lens brand name, base curve, and diameter which are not components of an eyeglass prescription.

Is it necessary for contact lens wearers to have regular eye examinations?

A regular eye examination is recommended to update your prescription and evaluate the health of your eyes. Contact lens prescriptions have varied expiration dates due to state regulations, doctor preference, and health concerns.

Do I have to get an eye exam first? What if I already have a prescription?

We make things easy for you at America's Best. Patients can use your own prescription; you don't need to see one of the independent Doctors of Optometry at America's Best to order contacts. However, a current, valid prescription is required to purchase contact lenses. Be sure to give us your doctor’s contact information or upload a copy of your prescription so it can be verified before your order is filled.

Remember at America's Best locations we offer low prices on eye exams for eyeglasses and contact lens exams. Why not get an eye exam, just to make sure that your vision hasn't changed? Call your local store to learn about offers at your nearest location or schedule your eye exam online. Call or stop in - one of our opticians will be happy to explain all the services we have to offer.
