FTC 16 CFR Part 315 Public Workshop Examining Contact Lens Marketplace And Analyzing Proposed Changes To The Contact Lens Rule
Rather than penalize doctors who have the patients eye health in mind, start policing the companies such as Hubble who repeatedly abuse the passive verification set by the FTC. Patients are ordering contacts that have not been evaluated on the eye posing an eye health hazard which can result in loss of vision and/or scarring. If anything, online companies should have to possess a valid, signed contact lens prescription in order to fill a request rather passive verification of the contact lens rx. The new rule proposed is ridiculous and puts more burden on the practitioner.
