Our experience is that most online contact lens retailers have minimal to no verification that the prescription is correct. There seems to be blatant non-verification. Prescriptions are continually renewed year and year and some patients return after 5 years and when asked how they managed so long, they say "well 1800contacts kept renewing my lenses even with sending them my old expired prescription". Even blank papers uploaded, or obviously modified old prescriptions are being let through as "valid".
