16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
It's very important patients receive the contact lenses that were prescribed by their eye doctor and the patient's ocular health is evaluated annually to decrease the risk of blindness. I had a new patient yesterday that was seen less than a year ago by another provider and she has been overwearing her contact lenses to the point that her cornea had changed shape and vision was no longer correctable to 20/20. She buys the "cheapest lenses" available online, not the rx that was written for her. Also, I'd like the online companies to verify the rx's during working hours. Many times I've been woken in the the middle of the night because these companies call the after hours line and it goes to my cell phone.
