Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act Law and Legal Definition

Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act is a United States federal law that aims at improving consumer protection and ocular health for contact lens users. The act was signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 6, 2003. The Act gives consumers certain rights, imposes duties on contact lens prescribers and sellers, and requires the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to develop and enforce implementing rules. The FTC issued the Contact Lens Rule in July 2004 to spell out the Act’s requirements. The act is codified at 15 U.S.C. 7601–7610.
