16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
There have been issues with the FTC Project No. R511995. 1. Third party verification was not done properly. Contact lenses have been dispensed after the expiration date. 2. According to the law, contact lenses can be dispensed before the expiration date, however, patients are allowed to reorder as many contact lenses as needed before the expiration date. This has created issues with patients coming in after 2 or 3 years for their annual eye examination. 3. There is no check and balances as the patients can order from many online retailers as they want before the expiration date.
