16 CFR Part 315; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request; Contact Lens Rule: FTC Project No. R511995
I am an optometrist and our clinic has always released spectacle and contact lens rx to patients at the final step of the exam. The additional ruling of requesting us to keep extra paperwork of pt's signatures of acknowlegememt of receipt of such prescription is definitively an annoying practice with no benefits to the patients or the practitioner. It is an unfair favoritism to the big box on line sellers of contact lenses who in many ways are providing contact lenses with altered, expired contact lenses to American public, posting more harm to the eyes.
