A Penetrating Look At Contact Lens Pricing

Congratulations! Finally, the "story" ("Contact-lens sellers just don't see eye-to-eye," Top of the News, July 12) has been put before the public: A major company has been selling the exact same contact-lens product at three different prices.

As an optometrist who would not be dictated to by the "sales rep," I applaud your efforts. It is embarrassing that our professional contact-lens journals and the leaders in the field did not report the story over a year ago.
