Do I need a previous prescription to take the vision test?

Last Updated: Dec 26, 2017 04:11PM CST

For most patients seeking an updated prescription, we require a previous prescription. Depending on your prescription, our ophthalmologists need to get a better understanding of your vision history to provide you with the most accurate and comfortable prescription possible.
For patients who have never had an eye exam and have a mild prescription, we do not require a prior prescription. A previous prescription is necessary to receive an Opternative prescription for contact lenses because first-time contact lens wearers require a contact lens fitting with an eye care professional in person.
