Most places carry common (aka low prescription) lenses. But they need yours on file (I always wondered about this, if I know my prescription why can't I get a pair? It isn't like I'm going to get high of my contacts)

I forgot my contacts on a trip and the store just called my optomologist to verify the prescription.

But you could damage your eyes if you have the wrong prescription or size. Bound to be a lawsuit at some point, so better for them to not take any risks.
