16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Contact lenses are a poorly regulated medical device. There are so many beauty shops that sell expired cosmetic contact lenses without a prescription. 1800 contacts and other online retailers prompt their customers to purchase an annual supply right before their prescription expires so they can save a trip to their Dr office. Meanwhile, people consider vision as their most valuable sense and would rather die than give up their sight. FTC and other agencies exist in some regard to protect us from ourselves. Please regulate contact lens sales and distribution more securely.
