FTC 16 CFR Part 315 Public Workshop Examining Contact Lens Marketplace And Analyzing Proposed Changes To The Contact Lens Rule
The fact that contact lenses are STILL not considered MEDICAL DEVICES by politicians is absolutely absurd. Do you realize that your eyes are DIRECT extensions of your BRAIN? Do you realize how quickly and easily an infection of the eye, caused by abuse of contact lenses, could lead to the need for a corneal transplant? To blindness? To an infection of your BRAIN? People will abuse contacts regardless of the education and training provided by licensed eye care professionals. People will abuse contacts even MORE if allowed to obtain contact lenses and bypassing the annual exam or through less regulated means. It's idiotic to think this is a good idea. This is your SIGHT that you're gambling.
