    When one has vision benefits with a company, and is normally
    required to wear safety glasses on the job, will the eye exam
    prescription for glasses also work for wearing contacts, or do 2
    separate eye exams have to happen to do both?

    You need two separate Rx's. But I assume that the OD can issue both at the
    same time as a result of one exam.

    The spectacle rx will be released right after the initial exam-
    the cl rx will be released after the proper fitting,evaluation
    and followup of the contact lens. Usually, there's an additional
    fee for these services.
