SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background To reduce the number of eye injuries, eyeglasses and sunglasses must be fitted with impact-resistant lenses capable of withstanding the impact test described under 21 CFR 801.410(d)(2). This guidance answers questions for manufacturers, importers, and testing laboratories on such topics as test procedures, lens testing apparatus, record maintenance, and exemptions to testing. This document also contains more detailed and updated discussions of (1) lens blanks, (2) semi-finished, finished, and plano lenses, and (3) import entry inspections. The draft version of this document was announced in the Federal Register of October 26, 2007 (72 FR 60862). Interested persons were invited to comment by January 24, 2008. FDA received numerous comments from laboratories, trade associations, retail establishments, and consumers surrounding three main issues. FDA further clarified the definition of ‘‘manufacturer’’ according to the Quality System regulation (21 CFR 820.3(o)). Additionally, based on data provided in the comments, FDA eliminated a question regarding the salability of plastic prescription lenses tested as part of a statistical sample. FDA also modified several questions which had indicated that the testing of all lenses had to be done after edging to clarify that all plastic prescription lenses and glass over-the-counter lenses could be tested in either ‘‘un-cut finished’’ or ‘‘finished’’ form. This guidance supersedes ‘‘ImpactResistant Lenses: Questions and Answers’’ (FDA 87–4002), issued September 1987. II. Significance of Guidance This guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The guidance represents the agency’s current thinking on impact-resistant lenses. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1
