    Yes, you can. In USA and some other countries, eye doctors are required by “Eyeglass Rule” to release a copy of your prescription after each eye exam at no extra cost. Please ask your doctor to include the PD which is a critical number for us to fit your lenses.In 1978, the Federal Trade Commission passed a regulation rule known as Ophthalmic Practice Rule, or Eyeglass Rule. The rule requires eye doctors (optometrists or ophthalmologists) to give patients their eyeglass prescriptions at no extra cost. Based on the rule, you can ask for a copy of your prescription from your eye doctor after an eye exam.

    When you go to an optician to have an eye exam next time, you can ask him for your prescription after you have completed your test. If you have paid for the fees of the eye exam, the doctor have no right to refuse to give you the prescripion, especially in USA. So you can get your prescription in florida.
