Eyewear Industry Specifics: US FDA Class I UDI Submissions

Update: December 2, 2022

The Vision Council has continued to work with the FDA to clarify whether sunglasses and readers need to report under the GUDID by the December 8, 2022 deadline.

After back and forth conversations, the FDA has now confirmed that they do not consider medical devices captured under 21 CFR parts 801, subpart H as ‘Restriced Devices’ for purposes of the GUDID Guidance Document, published July 25, 2022.

Therefore, sunglasses and readers are within the express definition of consumer health products as per the guidance document and are relieved from having to report into the GUDID.
