The current method of passive Rx verification is not working. The constant phone calls and faxes are a disruption and unreasonable burden to office staff. The verification's that are sent outside business hours are getting filled, despite sometimes being expired or incorrect Rx. I recently had a patient who was able to purchase lenses online for three years, despite our office sending Rx expired notices to the on line seller. The patient should be responsible for sending the written Rx to the seller.
