16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
It is important for contact lens sellers to verify consumer's contact lens prescription with the optometrist prior to contact lens sales. No contact lens sales should take place without a confirmation from the prescribing optometrist. There have been multiple times where consumers are given incorrect contact lens type and prescription or prescriptions are filled even after the prescription has expired. These action can be quite harmful to the consumer's vision and ocular health. Please do not let these contact lens sellers harm the consumers by allowing them to sell without proper confirmation from the prescribing optometrist.
