Trying to be short and to the point. Everyone wants fairness, including the eye care folks that do the contact lens fittings and eye health checks and treatment of damaged corneas. We're the ones that pay out the nose for taxes, insurance, rent, expensive equipment, etc. Patients can call places like 1-800 with a fake name, CL Rx and receive lenses as they like. No matter what laws and regulations you set in motion, there will always be nefarious CL sellers that will flaunt and violate the rules. And they know there will be little punishment if any. They play a mean game!
