16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
There is no accountability for online retailers abusing the system currently in place. Contact lens verifications come in the middle of the night when the retailers know that the office is obviously closed and cannot reply within the specified amount of time, so patients with expired prescriptions are approved for more lenses. I have seen numerous patients who have prescriptions that have been expired for many years who have been able to continually order contacts from online retailers without an updated prescription. This is ridiculous and causing harm to patients.
