16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
It is very imprtant for patients to have annual contact lens examations. This is not only to make certain that the contact lens prescription is correct but also to ensure that the contact lens is fitted properly in the patient's eyes. This fitting exam is brand specific as the fitting is examined with specific samples inserted into the patient's eyes. If the fit is not proper, it increases the probability of corneal abrasions and/or ulcers which could potentially harm one's vision permanently.
