16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
I am writing to strongly oppose the proposed amendment to the contact lens rule which requires a signed acknowledgment of the release of the contact lens prescription. While the consumer must be protected from harmful practices, this amendment offers no added consumer protection. Indeed, it will add to the already costly record keeping burden and the resultant added costs. Not only is this amendment unnecessary but will add to the cost of delivering health care.
