Your Eyewear Prescription Rights | Federal Trade Commission

Do you wear glasses or contacts? The next time you
visit your eye doctor, remember you have rights. Federal law requires
your doctor to give you your prescription for
glasses or contacts at the completion
of your eye exam. That’s right, you
don’t have to ask for it, pay extra, or
any forms, and you’re free to buy your glasses and
contacts from anyone, anywhere. Next time you get
your eyes checked, make sure you get a copy
of your prescription so you can shop around
online or in person, and keep an eye out
for the best deal. Didn’t get your prescription? Reported to the FTC. Learn more at
