16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Contact lens sellers not following these rules is a major problem in the eye care industry. I have several patients a month who have been able to order lenses far after their prescriptions expire, often not just putting their eyes at risk for damage, but many of them experiencing acute or chronic problems because of it. There need to be more strict regulations and penalties for companies that act unilaterally against a prescriber's judgement.
