16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I recently tried to order glasses online and wasn't able to do so without my PD. Unfortunately, my doctor didn't provide that on my original prescription, so I had to take a time-consuming procedures to get this reading done. Ultimately, the process took a full week longer than it needed to. It seems strange to me that if I order contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for my eyeglasses. I am completely reliant on my eye glasses to see and do not use contacts. If something happens to my glasses I am not able to drive to my job, do my job or function on many levels. The PD reading needs to be standard on all eye glass prescriptions.
