Hi Margaret-- Online pharmacies accredited through PharmacyChecker are different from US pharmacies in that accredited online pharmacies will fill your prescription exactly as written by your doctor: they will not substitute with the generic without your permission. Canada sells quality medication, comparable if not the same as that sold in the US. You do not need to go in person. You can order online from a safe, licensed pharmacy that sells Lumigan:
