Back when I worked at Walmart, I overheard the following conversation:
A guy wants to buy contacts but doesn’t have his Rx on him and his doctor is in another state. Walmart optician explains the Rx can be faxed to us since we need the written Rx and not just the contact boxes.
Optician: Was the exam done at a Walmart?
Guy: No, it was at an actual eye doctor.
