Unhelpful error messages in forms

I’m filling out a rebate form for Acuvue contacts right now. This is the error that I keep getting when I try to submit the form (which is about 3 screens long):


See that red text? Not so good, especially when nothing on the form is highlighted to indicated a problem.

Form error text should tell you exactly which fields you’ve messed up. That’s very easy to do, I’ve been doing it on forms for years.
