16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
As a healthcare provider, I seek to provide my patient's with the highest level of eyecare. Contact lenses are a medical device and I select and fit patient's with the appropriate contact lenses for them. Over my 8 years of practicing optometry, I have experienced that online and phone verification systems are being widely abused. Incorrect prescriptions are being requested for patients. This is the same as an incorrect hypertension medication being approved for a patient with hypertension. There needs to be more strict guidelines in order to be fair to the patients and the doctors.
