16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
This proposal is completely unnecessary and does nothing to protect the consumer. Individual state boards already require the release of contact lens prescriptions by optometrists. It's costly because doctors of optometry must train staff and have systems in place to document that they've complied with this rule. The FTC would serve interests of U.S. citizens better by utilizing its authority to investigate unscrupulous dispensing of contact lenses by 1-800- Contacts and other such entities.
