I do not agree with these changes. Each brand contact lens fits differently, base curves are not universal. That is why I perform contact lens fittings. There is no one lens that is ideal for everyone. Glasses and contact lens prescriptions should expire yearly. Making it OK to keep an Rx for longer will be sending a message that eye health exams are not important. These requests are not beneficial to patients, and in fact, will put their eye health at risk.
