I’m desperately in need of daily contact lenses by Park Ridge. I chose glasses this year instead and never got the contact lense exam. Now there is no way to order them even online is there anyway to go about getting them? I do know the strength I need. Am I SOL until I can get an appointment in?

Can you call your doc for a 1 month prescription until you can be seen?

I thought you could order from Walgreens or 1800 contacts if you know the prescription

Can order through 1800 contacts. I have eyemed and they gave me a list of sites I can order through that'll take my insurance as well

Costco? You can request a script from the eye doc who you last saw, they have to give it to you by law.

You need to do the exam every year if you are a contact wearer to have a valid rx. There is no solution until you see an OD and get a valid prescription.

I did a virtual eye exam with 1800-contacts and was able to order them. They were really nice!

I was able to get an expired prescription filled by 1800contacts. But like others have mentioned, they also were offering virtual checkups, so things are quite flexible now.

1800 contacts will do it! Just tell them you tried to call your eye dr and they were closed.

I order mine online. Try lens. com. The cheapest I have found. May take longer because of the virus, but try. Or try Walmart, Walgreens. 😇😇😇

I have lots of extras of different Rxs since all 3 kids wear them and I always order too many. Then their script changes! Let me know what you need and I might have it on hand.
