16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
This comment is for Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. Last winter, I needed to get new glasses because I had severely damaged my only pair. I don't know if you remember the last winter but in Massachusetts we had a record amount of snow in a small amount of time. I live in the city that was listed as the 2nd snowiest city in the US! Well, I had to trek to my optometrist during the middle of a snowstorm and have my appointment rescheduled twice because of the snow, just to get a new RX because it had been 13 months since my last exam. I would have worn these glasses with that RX for 2 more years had they not broken. I'm just glad I am healthy and able to move about in a snow storm. If I wasn't I don't know how I'd function without glasses for that long.
