FDA prohibiting contact lenses

I've needed contact lenses my whole life and my prescription has been the same for 15 years now. I wish to hell I could just go into Walgreens and buy my contacts over the counter. Thanks to the stupid FDA though, thats prohibited. Anyone had any luck ordering contacts from the UK or Canada?

Can't you just take your script into Walmart or Costco? Those places have eye centers. If you need a new script, doesn't your basic health insurance cover the eye exam? I know it's a pain, but better safe than sorry.

Always email my script to 1 800 contacts. Don’t believe contacts can be purchased without a less than one year old prescription.

yeah, I thought it was a year or 18 months that you could get them with the current prescription. If it's older, you got to get a new one. It's been that way for quite a while from what I remember but mine have been covered under insurance the past 15 years or so along with an annual exam so I haven't really dug deep into it. Really only come across it when they tell me the prescription is too old.

Yeah it has been this way for a while. That's what I'm saying. It's a pain to have to get an exam every year my whole life. It isn't a big deal really. Just wish I could take care of my own eyes. I'll get a new exam when I feel I need one.

Nope. The places I've ordered from and tried this have called/emailed me noting that I'm ordering more than 12 months worth and my prescription is only good until X date. It's a total racket. When you prescription hasn't changed in 20 years I don't understand this requirement.
