How to get your prescription

How do I get a copy of my prescription?

The optician is legally obliged to provide you with a copy of your prescription after your eye test. If they don’t give you this, make sure you ask them.

How recent does my prescription have to be?

Your prescription must be no older than two years. Your recommended intervals between eye tests vary depending on your age and health – find out more about this in Your Eye Test.
