Since the law was changed 10 years ago it has been treated like there is no law for the internet contact lens providers. It is not uncommon for a new patient to present to my office with red infected eyes with contact lenses that are old and overworn, patients state they haven't been to an eye care provider in years since they have been able to just refill their prescription online. Brick and mortar retailers don't behave this was in my experience. Also the public falsely believes they are getting pink eye and it has no relation to their overwar of their contact lenses.
