16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
I have always felt that the contact lens rule is not in the patients best interest in that it allows many incorrect and potentially harmful contact lenses to be dispensed. Patients may not always be aware that the lenses they are purchasing may not have been the actual lenses that the doctor prescribed and may be potentially harmful to the health of their eyes. If the law necessitated the doctors actually answering in the positive to a contact lens rx request it would guarantee the correct lenses being ordered and dispensed.
