    I see lots of postings on your rights to your contact lens
    prescription; does the same hold true for your eyeglass prescription?

    My sister tells me the mall store where she gets her eyes examined
    won't give her the prescription. If this is not legal, does anyone
    have a link showing this? This is in Illinois.

    Weird. I've never been given my prescription without asking.

    I have never gotten an Rx without asking, and even then it was not a
    pleasant experience. Always look at your Rx carefully to make sure there are
    no transcription "mistakes" when they write your Rx from their records.

    I get my eyecare at two different places. At the HMO, I am handed a
    prescription after the exam. I don't have to ask. At the private
    practice place, I have to ask. There is nothing unpleasant about it,
    though. I ask, and they cheerfully give it to me.
