There is an abuse in the contact lens verification system. Patients have come in after 2 or 3 years still getting refills without any eye examination. The contact lens they are using are not even the ones they were fitted for, or some are not even the correct power! They call at odd hours with a time frame of only 8 hours. How can we verify something at 12am! Our patients health and vision are at risk. Faxes are blank and illegible at times. there has to be a change in the verification system. Some offices are not open every day.
