16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
We have been told by patients that 1-800 contacts has re-filled their expired contact lens prescriptions. As a result, some patients do not present for eye exams for 2 - 3 years. The new proposed ruling should include the undertaking that the FTC and 1- 800 contacts will take responsibility for adverse contact lens- related eye health problems incurred by patients for using medical devices (contact lenses) without proper supervision. I would like to know if the FTC has any Optometrists on its advisory board to help in this matter.
