Is it required to have an eye exam when you get new contacts or are they trying to rip me off?

Hi.. I know my prescription... I just need a new box of contacts. I went into the store with my prescription and my contact lens dimensions. They said they needed to do an eye exam every year, regardless of the fact that I want the same prescription. They said it was against the law to give out contacts if you don't have a yearly eye exam. Is this true, or are they just trying to get more money out of me for the exam? I don't need an exam!! I just need a new box of contacts because I ran out. Thanks!

  • Yeah. You do need an eye exam when you get new contacts.The prescription is not always the same and it's valid only for some specific period of time. So don't worry they don't try to rip you off.
