16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Every night around 11 p.m. my optometry office gets phone calls and empty cancelled faxes from contact lens company is attempting to verify prescriptions. Not only am I unable to receive the actual verification but the companies do this in secret in order to satisfy a law that is not enforced. It is safe and appropriate to have this law in place but unless it is enforced we will continue to see abuse of contact lenses resulting in terrible sight threatening diseases. Please work on a better way for 1 800 contacts and other large online companies to verify prescriptions from Dr such as myself.
