Contact lens Prescription
USA (United States of America)
I already wear prescriptioned glasses, but want to switch to contact lenses. About 2 months ago, I got an exam to upgrade my prescription, but I never got around to getting new glasses with that prescription.
My regular doctor said I have to get the new glasses with the upgraded presciption first before I can get a contact exam. Is this true? Or can I just get contacts from another doctor?
Thanks for your Question
