The answer is that a valid prescription is required to order eyeglasses or sunglasses from any dealer, whether it be a store or online. Most eyewear prescriptions are only good for two years before they expire requiring you to get a new eye exam. Even if your vision hasn’t changed significantly over that time, you still need an updated prescription every two years to get new prescription eyewear. So, it might be time to get your eyes checked and invest in a new pair of prescription sunglasses online.
PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES FROM REKS
If your eye prescription has already expired, unfortunately, you won't be able to get a new pair of glasses until you have an eye exam. In case you don’t know, it is against the law for anybody to fill a prescription for eyeglasses using an expired prescription. The best practice is to get an eye exam before buying new eyewear, even if you believe your vision has not changed since the last time you got it checked.
Note that your prescription should not drastically change once you reach your early twenties until you develop cataracts in your 60s, 70s, or 80s. There is no such thing as expired prescription eyeglasses; the only factors that might affect them are style, lens scratches, and broken frames. Keep wearing them as long as your vision is clear unless you need to upgrade to a newer frame or set of lenses
