FTC 16 CFR Part 315 Public Workshop Examining Contact Lens Marketplace And Analyzing Proposed Changes To The Contact Lens Rule
I am a doctor of optometry that practices general optometry in several surrounding local communities. I feel there is no good reason to burden optometrists and opthalmologists with new paperwork and document storage requirements that the proposed contact lens rule would require. Members of Congress have confirmed that your own agency's data shows that doctors comply with the current law as was shown in congressional hearings with FTC officials. Please recognise contact lenses are a medical device and focus your attention on the retail sites that are putting our patients in harms way by obtaining replacements with out the proper professional examinations.
