16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
If followed this rule could be beneficial. Customers should have easy access to their prescription for purchase of materials elsewhere. However, the verification process when placing an order onlin needs to be more strict. Often times patients are able to order contacts year after year because of one reason or another. Instead of the rule stating that it is ok to fill the Rx without response, the rule should require a response from the patients optometrists office before it will be filled. The providers will be forced to respond in a timely manner in order to avoid continued calls, faxes from the online site, but also to avoid phone calls from an unhappy patient if the doctors office does not respond Ina timely manner. This has the potential to solve a lot of problems!
