Dear Eye Health Advocates,
We are pleased to share this recent good news: the U.S. House of Representations and the Senate recently reintroduced the Contact Lens Prescription Verification Modernization Act (H.R.3353/ S.1784.) This legislation will eliminate robocalls as a permissible form of verification for sellers, promoting a better paper trail for verification to encourage a more error-free contact lens prescription fulfillment process. Ultimately, the elimination of robocalls from contact lens prescription verifications will help keep contact lens patients safe and ensure they receive the exact lenses as prescribed by their eye care provider.
Your elected officials need to hear from you about why they should support this bill, and the time to act is now.
Reach out to your legislators to make your voice heard in support of the Contact Lens Prescription Verification Modernization Act.
As always, we remain committed to working by your side leading industry advocacy efforts supporting patient eye health and safety—including taking on robocalls.
Michael Mayers, O.D., FAAO
