    It is suggested that an eye exam should be taked once a year.Though your prescription hasn't changed at all, it may develop other eye diseases. So to keep your eye healthy, you'd better not use the prescription that you got 3 years ago.

    You'd better not, It is strongly suggested to use your eyeglass prescription in the most recent 2 years. Actually Eye Care Professionals (ECPs) suggest an eye exam each six months or one year to detect any possible eye diseases in the earlier stage.
