16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I am commenting on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I recently placed an order for prescription eyeglasses and didn't have my prescription handy - I asked the optical shop to call my doctor to verify my prescription but the doctor did not call them back. The doctor, in effect, is withholding my medical information preventing me from buying glasses at the place of my choosing. This practice should not be allowed.
