LegitScript Launches Certification Program for Internet Eyeglass Sellers

PORTLAND, Oregon (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

LegitScript, LLC, operator of the world’s largest online healthcare certification programs, including those for Internet pharmacy certification, monitoring and compliance, and dietary supplement safety and classification, has launched a certification program for Internet sellers of prescription eyeglasses. The new program, called iCareRx, provides certification for eyeglasses prescription verification, transparency regarding the identity of the owner/operator of Internet websites, and customer/patient privacy protection.

The company said that to its knowledge, the program is the first of its kind to focus on online eyeglass sellers.

“In all segments of the online healthcare market, there are some legitimate actors and, unfortunately, those that put profits above patient safety,” said John Horton, President of LegitScript. “It’s important that patients know which are which, to avoid receiving a substandard product or a prescription-only product without a verified and valid prescription. ”

The iCareRx eyeglass program is modeled after the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites program conducted by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) that provides for voluntary certification of Internet pharmacies. LegitScript announced a comment period for certification standards in late 2014, and said that the final standards are a result of consultation with industry and other stakeholders.

According to LegitScript, over 100 websites engaged in the sale of prescription eyewear have been identified and uploaded to LegitScript’s website. “Most of these have a neutral legitimacy classification pending further review, but a few have already been designated as ‘unapproved’ based on failure to comply with applicable safety standards,” said Horton. “Internet users can search for free to determine the legitimacy of Internet eyeglass sellers.”

The program cost starts at a $395 non-refundable review fee and annual $995 fee upon approval.
