    Hi

    My medical insurance is in Tijuana, Mexico and I would much rather have
    the ophtalmologist over there [who btw did my father's eye operation
    and who checked on my mom's eye infection a couple of months back] do
    my prescription.

    So, now I'm just wondering if anyone knows whether contact lens
    prescriptions from other countries are honored in the U.S. or not?

    As I said before, I'd rather go to this doctor that we already know,
    have had good experiences with, great attention and not to mention that
    it will be way cheaper! [Insurance covers most of it, my co-pay is only
    $5/visit vs. the $35 I had to pay extra for contact lens prescription
    when I had vision coverage in the U.S. and then about $15 extra for any
    follow up visits]

    Thanks!

    - Monique

    most optical outlets in the US will honor prescriptions from foreign
    doctors. shouldn't be a problem.
