16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Please know that I am very concerned about relaxing the regulations of contact lens prescriptions. Because these are medical devices that are put into the body on a daily basis, many harmful bacterial and viral diseases can result. Patients need to be evaluated at least yearly in order to achieve better health and vision for our society. Eyeglass prescriptions are less dangerous to your 'health', however, without proper professional evaluating, poor and improper vision can result to a degradation to our society as well. Especially to those that drive an automobile. Please keep the guidelines as 1 year expiration for both eyeglasses and contact lenses along with explicit directions on the proper manufacturer and sizing of the medical devices whether contact lenses or glasses. Thank you in advance.
