• Is it possible that my glasses can be read for my prescription?


    Question:

    I have a pair of glasses that I got from another country that are accurate to my current prescription. I'm planning to get a new pair but I don't have the actual prescription information. Is it possible that my glasses can be read for my prescription?


    Answer:

    All ophthalmologists have a device that can give you a direct readout of the prescription in your glasses. So do the optical shops that make glasses. This is how they check the powers from the lens manufacturers to make sure the prescriptions are filled correctly. Either an ophthalmologist or an optical shop could read your glasses and present you with the same prescription.
