16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Large vendors of contact lenses are leaving messages on weekends and filling prescriptions anyway. I have had patients receiving contact lenses for several years with no valid prescription and no verification ever done. If I see them again, the lenses are aged and the patient has "forgotten" wear/discard schedule and cleaning directions. Vendors should not ignore expiration dates on prescriptions or the number of boxes constituting a year supply. Both things have occurred!
