    Clearly Contacts and Ontario

    I saw that these guys were advertising in our newspaper. I thought it was illegal to buy over the phone or over the internet for contacts in Ontario.

    I wonder if there is some loophole. Perhaps you are buying from another province where they have no such regulation.

    To be honest though, I know of no regulation banning ordering CLs over the phone/net. Would that mean I can't fill a patient's order when they phone my office for more CLs?

    No, it means that you have to do the measurements. Now if they got the measurements that may be the solution, but that may not be allowed.

    very interesting reading:
    Murray McBride, Director

    Mr. McBride brings an extensive background in both the private and public sectors. In his previous positions he has been the Chairman of the Intellivest Group of Companies, President of the Alexander Proudfoot Company of Canada, Member of Parliament of Canada, Chairman of the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency, Vice Chairman and General Manager of the Farm Credit Corporation of Canada, Chief of Staff of the Canadian Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs and Chief of Staff of the Postmaster General of Canada.
