    yes....provided the prescription they gave you is not more than 2 years old (i THINK that's how long prescriptions last)

    As long as they give you the prescription, yes. (they better have a good reason to not give you the prescription.)

    IANAL and YMMV by state/province/country, but I believe they have to give you the prescription if it's less than 2 years old.

    Since you're talking glasses and not contacts, make sure you get the pupillatory distance (the distance between the centers of your two pupils) as this is critical information. Mind you, if you're still growing, it can change rapidly. Get yourself remeasured if you've grown.

    Because it just came up at work: There are some places that will sell you glasses without a prescription, if you buy your glasses without a prescription your health insurance may not cover it (mine doesn't).

    But keep in mind that most places that sell glasses can measure that for you. You don't need to go back to doc for it.
