    how much has your prescription changed? surely it doesn't matter that much just use the old prescription the optician said my eyes were slightly worse last appointment (by like -0.25) but said he wouldn't bother changing the contact lense prescription as it wouldn't make much difference! so your vision is still probably good...

    Yeah it only changed by a little, but I still feel like I'm wearing the "wrong" ones. But I suppose I'll keep wearing them in that case.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I've needed new glasses for like 2 years but just kept my old ones instead, I'd just use them till you run out.

    One of my friends who is the owner of www.thehomeoptician.com buys back contact lenses, try them out, they also offer the cheapest glasses guarantee.
