How long is a contact lens prescription good for?

Contact Lens Prescription Expiration

A contact lens prescription is generally good for at least a year from the date it was issued - more in some states. However, your doctor can expire your prescription in less than a year if there are documented medical reasons why a shorter period is necessary. You must always provide a valid prescription for Prescription Contacts.
