FDA Impact Resistance Guidelines

On September 2, 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a revised Q&A document regarding impact resistance guidelines for lenses.

The Vision Council’s technical experts are currently reviewing the document and will meet in-person to discuss the organization’s position prior to Vision Expo West. Upon reaching a consensus, The Vision Council’s government and regulatory affairs department will work with the appropriate channels to convey the organization’s stance to the FDA.

For technical questions regarding the Q&A document, please contact Michael Vitale at mvitale@thevisioncouncil.org. For questions legal or regulatory questions, please contact Rick Van Arnam, The Vision Council regulatory counsel, at 212-725-0200 ex. 126 or at rvanarnam@barnesrichardson.com.
