As a practicing optometrist who deals with contact lens related red eyes on a weekly basis I would be very disappointed in any deregulation concerning contact lens prescription expiration dates or allowing substitution of different contact lens material and or dimensions without a proper fitting from an eye care professional. People do develop complications resulting from improper fit, contact lens over wear, and these complications can be sight threatening. I believe contact lenses should continue to be regulated as medical devices in the future.
