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 order online lens choosing only half of the 'progressive' prescription (i.e., distance lens) Ultimately, the process took a full week longer than it needed to. It seems strange to me that when I order my contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for my eyeglasses.
