On many occasions I have received requests for contact lens verification from many of the online retailers. All of them including publicaly traded 1-800-CONTACT LENS have shipped lenses before getting the federally mandated verification. After shipping lenses they will request verification after the patient has already received the contact lenses. On many occasions the prescriptions have expired or the brand and power were incorrect.
