I would like to know my glasses prescription so I can buy new glasses online, clearlycontacts.
However, my mom lost the papers and my optometrist is more than forty minutes away. I do not drive, and I don't want to hassle my father for taking me. It'll be a waste of his gas.

I was wondering can I just call in, tell them my name and ask if they can give me my prescription?

Also, is it true that if you go to walmart, they'll take a look at your glasses and detect what your prescription is? Please help. :(

Any optician can read the Rx from your glasses. No optician I know will make a pair of glasses from that read since he or she does not know if it is correct.

No optician I know would give an Rx over the phone to anyone other than another Eye Care Professional since if you wrote it down incorrectly, he or she would still be legally responsible for it.

Call the optometrist and have him mail it to you. 40 miles, should take two days at the most.

Often we are told to have our prescription for glasses with us when we go on holiday incase we loose them. So get your mum to ring and say she is worried that you may loose your glasses when away. So they could email you your prescription.
