If you go to the eye doctors for contacts and it your first time do you get them the same day?

Depends: If you have a standard prescription without extreme near-/far-sightedness or astigmatism and you wear soft contacts, then you should be able to get a sample pair on the same day. If not, then your lenses will have to be ordered.
