As a licensed optician in the state of Georgia, I see, on a daily basis, the results of what happens to patients that decide to purchase their glasses on line as apposed to purchasing them from a doctor and having them being dispensed by a licensed optician. Bad segment measurements, thin lenses as those by on line companies don't have to meet standards. That, meeting standards, is the best reason that these companies, that are trying to get you to pass these laws, are pushing as hard as they are. They aren't trying to help the public, they are looking at their bottom lines. Period
