The Law regarding the Internet supply of contact lenses
The Opticians Act states that contact lenses can only be supplied on-line under supervision of a registered optometrist, dispensing optician or contact lens optician. When ordering lenses the supplier (Robert Frith Services) must have sight of the original specification document issued by the fitting optician, or a copy of the said document, this can be a facimile or scanned copy. In the case where a copy is supplied the supplier (Robert Frith Services) must, by law, contact the prescribing optician and verify that the details o the specification are correct. This need only be done once during the lifespan of the specification. When the specification expires you will need to have a further contact lens aftercare and forward us the specification.
For us to supply you with contact lenses we have, by law, to have a copy of your Contact Lens Specification, which will have been given to you by your optician. This will contain;
This can be faxed to us on 01747 852 794 or scanned on and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. or, of course, posted to:

Once we have seen this document you can order lenses freely through our online shop provided the supply falls within the end date of the specification when you will need to visit your optician for a further aftercare appointment and specification renewal.
Alternatively you can contact your optician and give them permission to give us the information. We will then telephone them and verify the information direct. They need your permission to comply with the data protection act.
