United States of America in Congress assembled,


    The Congress finds as follows:
            (1) Both corrective and noncorrective contact lenses have

        health risks if improperly manufactured or used without the 
        supervision of a qualified eyecare practitioner.
            (2) Noncorrective lenses sold outside the protections of 
        medical device regulation have caused eye injuries in children.
            (3) Both corrective and noncorrective lenses have been 
        approved as medical devices by the Food and Drug Administration 
            (4) FDA has until recently publicly claimed jurisdiction 
        over both corrective and noncorrective contact lenses as 
        medical devices.


    Section 520 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 
360j) is amended by adding at the end the following subsection:

                ``Regulation of Contact Lens as Devices

    ``(n)(1) Both corrective and noncorrective contact lenses and 
similar articles shall be considered devices under section 201(h).
    ``(2) With respect to an article that is not described in paragraph 
(1), such paragraph may not be construed as having any legal effect on 
any determination by the Secretary of whether the article is a food, a 
drug, a device, or a cosmetic.''.
