16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Verification of prescription is not strictly enforced. Patients are told by online vendors that "their prescription is on the box" and are encouraged to place orders by reading information on contact lens boxes, or from trial lens foils. I have had several patients tell me that they have received contacts from online vendors before we have even finalized prescriptions.
