Shouldnt: Contacts are like shoes. The same size in different brands fit differently. Contacts should always be fit by a doctor. After that if you wish to reorder from elsewhere, i don't have a problem with that, but it is your doctors responsibility to make sure your eyes are tolerating the lenses. For this reason, you should go back for a new prescription.

Devastating!: This has been a major topic and campaign by the american academy of ophthalmology. As a cornea specialist, i can tell you stories of devasting corneal ulcer that have lead to blindness and corneal transplant surgery due to a simple contact lens! if you value your vision, spend the money to get properly fitted and checked. You are entitled to take your prescription anywhere and get a deal!
