16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
I think this rule is very important. Most people don't realize the importance of being properly fitted for contact lens. My husband and I have a lot of friends who are in rock bands and they order Halloween or colored contacts online and were never taught how to properly insert or remove a contact lens and end up scratching their corneas or putting the lens inside out and producing serious damage to their eyes. The eye is a living breathing organism and should be treated with the same respect as any other organ in your body. The purpose of going to the doctor every year is to not only check if your prescription has changed but to monitor the health of your eyes. This law keeps people aware and responsibly active in the maintenance of their eyes. People need to be educated and fitted because not every eye is the same and they shouldn't be treated as one generic unit.
