16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
I think this is proposed change is a waste of time and paper. We already give out finalized prescriptions to all contact lens wearers. Spending half of my patient care time in a retail location, I don't even sell contacts. Patients are already aware that they can get their contacts filled anywhere. This is redundant and unnecessary. You should focus your time on the online retailers who change brands illegally and auto ship contacts without confirmation from doctors office. Half the time people can get contacts for years illegally because 1800 contacts doesn't check or conveniently faxes the paper at midnight and only 8 hrs to respond but store doesn't open till 10 am. They are the ones doing the injustice to our patients, not us.
