To whom it may concern, As an eye care provider I find it unacceptable that Contact lenses prescriptions be filled on base curve and diopter parameters only. Many patients can be uncomfortable and unsuccessful with an improper material choice. The eyes have to observed for damage and overwear complications to prevent serious problems from occurring, this is best done with semi annual and annual evaluations with their eye care professional. The fact that some vendors purposefully call to fill prescriptions after hours knowing they will not be verified is unethical to the patient and the provider. Dr. Chantelle Clarizio-Optometrist
