I got an e-mail from my son today. His friend tried to get a pair of contact lenses on line for a party he is going to in South Beach. Problem was he couldn’t get the contact lenses without a Doctor’s Rx! He wanted to know if I could get him the lenses before the party… This brings up an important point, contact lenses are not a costume, they are still medical devices that are applied to the eyes. They need to be fit and cared for properly! Unfortunately I needed more than a day’s notice to get him the lenses, I guess a new costume in in the works..
It’s good to know that he was unable to get his lenses without the Rx. Several years ago, it would have been much easier, and riskier to get these lenses. In fact I did an interview way back in 2004 with CBS News and Sapna Parikh (who is now on Fox.) I love this interview. Why? Because my daughter Arielle and her friend Chelsea are both part of the story! It is great to see them when they were so young, they are now 20!
Hope you all enjoy the story!
