Date: 2016-12-07
Agency: Federal Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
As part of its regulatory review of the Contact Lens Rule (``Rule''), and consistent with the requirements of the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (the ``Act''), the Federal Trade Commission proposes to amend the Rule to require that prescribers obtain a signed acknowledgment after releasing a contact lens prescription to a patient, and maintain each such acknowledgment for a period of not less than three years. The Commission seeks comment on this proposal and several other issues.
