Contact lenses are a medical device and need to be treated as so. Improper handling and care can cause vision threatening conditions such as Corneal ulcers, that could necessitate the need for a corneal transplant. Contact lenses need to be fit to the eye. Improperly fitting contact lenses can cause corneal ulcers also. Un branding contact lenses is a major public health risk. The prescription in the eye changes all the time. Increasing the validity of a prescription is foolish and again a public safety issue. Can you imagine people driving their cars with the wrong prescription for years on end? Accident waiting to happen. Thank you
