Please reconsider the cause and effect of such a decision for the Eyecare professionals, their staff, and the patients when they are possibly getting substandard products from the internet ordering sites. What control is in place to be sure that the patients are indeed getting the proper RX in their glasses. When they are produced locally the unemployment rate is also assisted rather than outsourcing all of our jobs to the overseas market. This will produce an outrageous domino effect for all involved with providing a correct pair of glasses for our patients. Very soon, they will find a way to provide thier exams online as well. Consider all that will happen with this decision
