16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Patients need to be informed about the importance of updating contact lens prescriptions with doctors every year. Refilling expired prescriptions occurs too often and patient's eye health needs to be protected. Online companies need to contact prescribing doctors during business hours not on Sundays or in the evening. Fax verifications need to be sent with ample time for doctors to be able to verify prescriptions.
