Representatives of Johnson & Johnson Vision, the Coalition for Patient Vision Safety and the American Optometric Association (AOA) met earlier this week with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) acting chairman Maureen Ohlhausen to discuss FTC’s proposed changes to the Contact Lens Rule, according to J&J Vision. As VMail reported, the FTC late last year proposed several changes to the 2004 Contact Lens Rule. Among the proposed changes: ECPs would be required to obtain a patient’s signed acknowledgment that they were provided with a copy of the contact lens prescription at the completion of the lens fitting, and providers would have to retain a copy of this signed acknowledgement (either hard copy or an electronic version) for at least three years.
