16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
Having patients and doctors to sign an additional sheet expressing the release of the contact lens prescription is a waste of time. You will force every patient who is in a hurry and doesn't fill that form to have to come back to the office before getting their prescription. This will further delay the process and make patients even more angery. Just require the release and stop adding more paper work to a system that is already complicated enough. Most doctors that are doing this correctly will be penalized to have to do this extra step. If a doctor doesn't release the prescription then have them do this process. But don't penalize every eye doctor.
