16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
Hello! I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I have been wearing glasses for about three years and was appalled when I noticed that the first prescription that I received from my doctor varied so much from my sister's prescription. Shouldn't all eye glasses prescriptions look the same? My sister had an expiration date that was longer than mine, and also had another measurement called a "PD" on hers. I'd like that too! What if we went someplace together to purchase frames? Chances are she'd be leaving with new glasses and I would not be. I like my doctor, but I'd like my doctor to give me the same information that other doctors may give me!
