16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Patients should be required to submit a valid prescription to the seller. Allowing a seller to request a prescription from the seller and if they do not respond in a relatively short period of allowing the seller to go ahead and fill the prescription has allowed too many patients to obtain a prescription that is out of date and unsafe. This is not in the patient's best and interest and it is not safe for their eye health. It is not too much to ask a patient to show a valid rx to the seller. The same responsibility is asked of every citizen at any traffic stop when asked to have a valid drivers license.
