So I get chew out. At least it on a full stomach.
Yes, I know I will get a lecture from you guys but I don’t really care. I am going out tonight on the dime of the big resturant CEO.
She came into my office a couple of weeks ago, she and her family were down here vacationing and her daughter lost her contacts. She was like a -3.75 ou. When her Doctors office faxed me the Rx they had written Expired on top the Rx. At the time I had no idea who she was. I just felt bad for her. The Rx was 12 ½ months old. They were colored contacts so of course we did not have trails.
To make things worse she was at the wrong office. She passed up my main office and had come to my office. Florida Streets Suck. So I have fitted 1,000’s of contacts before and before you guys start with the lecture of contacts are drugs. Heck you can go to Sally Beauty Supply and buy them.
I match the Rx. She thanked me and then asked me what I thought about the place. I thought that was kind of strange but I played along. I told her everyone loves their food. She then told me who she was. She left and about an hour later she came back in with her card and a gift certificate for dinner for two.
So I get chewed out by our Contact Tech kinda makes me laugh.

Why would you get chewed out? For helping someone? (Of course, if I was in that situation, I would have also sold her plano suns, but that's a different story!)
b/c her rx called for colored contacts. all I had was clear trail contacts. plus the rx said expired on top of it. they were just in a jam.
Not a big deal to me. The only thing I might chew you out for is identifying the patient on a public forum.

Does anyone really believe that a patient will be in any worse shape with a 12.5 month Rx and CL fitting than they were at 11.5 months. Remember laws are passed by drunken legislators that have been bought with good hard money and other inducements.
I have mentioned before that I had a patient in wearing the exact same pair of PMMA contact lenses for 44 years without replacement.
haha rules are made to be broken
