Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act

Law:

15 U.S.C. §§ 7601-7610

The Act imposes on contact lens prescribers and sellers several requirements intended to enhance prescription portability. Among other things, prescribers must release a contact lens prescription to a patient and may not tie the prescription release to the purchase of lenses from the prescriber. Sellers may dispense lenses only in accordance with a prescription that the patient or prescriber presents directly to the seller, or that has been verified by the prescriber. The Act directs the Commission to issue rules to implement the Act.
