ITS AGAINST THE LAW
Dispensing of eyewear over the internet is against the Law.
The provision of eyewear as in Contact Lenses and glasses are required to be done by a licensed Optometrist or Optician.
Economics??? What is the motive for any company or group of people to provide any prescribed device over the internet? Likely to make money.
The public however are seemingly unaware of the laws which governs prescribed devices and are motivated by WHAT ? Saving money?
The law is in place to protect you. Thinking you are saving money by ordering a device over the internet is actually going to cost you. YOUR HEALTH.
The company providing the lens may not be giving you the correct specifications, and the side effect to you may cause you harm. Also, without any quantification or identification of the lens provided leaves you in a situation of actually being “taken” by inferior products. Costing you by adding dysfunction and more frequent replacement. Costing not only money, but TIME.
A recent Legal Challenge inacted by the Colleges of Optometrists and Opticians in Ontario have Won the injunction to prevent the companies dispensing Glasses and Contact Lenses over the internet.
IT IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST TO PROTECT WHAT YOU ARE PRESCRIBED AND WHERE IT COMES FROM.
