Do you know the Law?

This page is intended to give wearers some general guidance on the sort of regulations governing contact lenses, but it should not be construed as legal advice.  More detailed information is available from the General Optical Council

The legal requirements for the sale of contact lenses are set out in the Opticians Act 1989, and associated instruments.  In addition, you should always consult a properly qualified solicitor before entering into any sort of business connected with contact lenses and connected products.  The ACLM does not give advice about setting up a business.
