The Coalition for Patient Vision Care Safety (“Coalition”) is a group of health care providers, medical device manufacturers and academic institutions dedicated to ensuring the safe and appropriate use of contact lens so that patients achieve the best outcomes regarding vision and eye health.
The Coalition has submitted comments expressing its concerns about the recent proposed rule issued by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) with respect to the Contact Lens Rule (“CLR”). In 2004, the FTC adopted the CLR to implement the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (the “Act”). In September 2015, the Commission sought public comments as part of its 10-year regulatory review of the CLR. The Coalition submitted its comments in October 2015 and raised various patient-safety issues.
