16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
The law needs to change in verification of contact lenses. Eight hours is insufficient time especially when they are requested during non working hours/days. It shouldn't be that if request goes unanswered the prescription is automatically filled. There needs to be concrete confirmation of the rx. Too many patients are wearing the wrong prescription and doing harm to their ocular health. They are not getting examined at the appropriate intervals since they are getting contacts after their expiration date.
