I have a busy practice in Manhattan. It's time to stop the online retailers trying to undercut the contact lens prices. It has turned out profession into a joke. People order contacts online year after year. Online retailers bombard us with faxes and phone calls. We would rather be helping people see and working with patients than answer these calls or faxes. UPP has been the best thing to happen to our profession in years. As a doctor, I have to tell patients, "now you can order from us because no online retailer will be cheaper, we appreciate if you buy from us." I shouldn't be put in that position, but at least it's working. Please support our profession.
