Re: do i need a prescription for new glasses

It depends.
If you are just getting another pair with the same precription at the same place, the Rx will be on file (although if a couple years have passed, they would want to re-examine you). If you are getting glasses somewhere else, the new place will require the prescription (which you can obtain from the first place). And if your vision has changed, you'll need a new prescription.
I doubt you can walk into an optician's and say grind me lenses to my specifications, without a prescription. But, if you're paying, who knows?
Does that answer your question?
