16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Contact lenses are medical devices and need to be evaluated annually for the safety of the patient. Patients cannot accurately determine on their own if they fit properly. They go by comfort only and that is not safe. Long term damage has been seen over and over again by poor fits and outdated materials. Patients cannot evaluate their own lenses, only a profressional that has the proper equipment can.
