I think it's great that eye care providers have to provide a prescription to both patients and authorized third parties...no issues there, and that seems fair. However problems tend to arise when a contact lens seller attempts to verify prescriptions with the eye care provider. Frequently we receive faxes or phone calls outside of business hours, such as at 10pm at night or on the weekend. This does not give the provider enough time to accurately respond.
