4. As an Optician, I would advise against that.

If the patient has double vision, then the patient probably needs Prism included in the Rx. An Optician needs to see the seg height on the lenses in person. To do this online is a serious risk that the patient takes with their Rx being wrong in the lenses which could seriously affect the vision.

As far as the Insurance Companies paying for eyeglasses only every 2 years, they do this if only there is >.50 diopter difference in the new Rx compared to the old Rx. It has become common in most Insurance companies.
