The Contact lens bill in question has destroyed eye health care in the United States. You have corporations who show total disregard for the well being of their customers, only care about profits. They have tried every way possible to cheat the system, and do not abide by the rules they wanted, only expect providers to obey what they desire. No other group of healthcare providers have their clinical skills and patient relationships interfered with by a non medical group. They put profits ahead of health, and I personally have seen devastating results. Contact lenses are safe devices, but bad things happen. Our patients rely on us to be honest with them, and keep them safe and healthy. Online retailers care not about safety, only profits. If things do not change, then the agency must accept their part in the demise of quality eyecare.
