16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
The regulation of contact lenses cannot be allowed to lapse to a two or five year expiration date. Private doctors are at the center of care for patients, and prior to the yearly expiration date, infections causing vision loss were rampant. With more Doctor control, over the last 5 years, I have seen a dramatic drop in these debilitating infections that lead to vision loss, helping keep my patients safe. 1800contacts does not have my patients' safety in mind, only being able to sell them contact lenses. It's ok if they sell them contact lenses, but patients must be protected. What online retailers want does not protect your constituents, my patients.
