No, you can not use an expired prescription to order contact lenses. Plano and corrective contact lens prescriptions expire just as prescriptions for corrective eye glasses expire. Under Federal guidelines we only accept currently valid prescriptions from a licensed optometrist.
If your contact lens prescription has expired please visit your Eye Care Provider for an examination BEFORE placing an order.
To get your prescription verified quickly:
Submitting your prescription information is very simple. Once you have added your desired lenses to the shopping cart, proceed through the checkout system. In the Order Review section of the shopping cart fill in your Eye Care Professional's Information (name and phone number) and we will verify that your prescription is current and valid. We do not not ship out lenses in a specific size or prescriptive power based off your submitted prescription or Eye Doctor's information, we use your Eye Doctor's information to verify that you have a prescription for contact lenses and we ship you exactly what you order. If you need prescription contacts be sure to choose the correct power when ordering your lenses, if you need non-prescription contacts choose "0.00". Verifying your contact lens prescription takes a minimum of 24 hours. Once verified, your order will be processed and shipped.
