|Agency Decision Summary||
The Board discussed the request to amend regulations to add a requirement to include the total number of lenses on a prescription and voted not to initiate rulemaking. The Board concurred with the comment from the National Association of Optometrists and Opticians that it is contrary to the spirit of Federal Trade Commission law and rules. Additionally, the regulation would be very difficult to monitor or enforce.
