Contact Lens Prescription Release Act of 2001 - Instructs the Federal Trade Commission to promulgate a rule on ophthalmic practice that: (1) requires a contact lens prescriber to provide the patient, (or, upon request, the patient's agent), a copy of the contact lenses prescription, including its two-year expiration date; and (2) makes it an unfair trade practice for a contact lenses industry member to publish any advertisement or sales presentation relating to contact lenses that represents that they may be obtained without a valid prescription.
