16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I recently tried to purchase eyeglasses on-line with a prescription from my eye doctor which did not include the PD measurement. Not having the PD measurement on my prescription caused me much trouble and delay. I had to figure my PD out myself, and in addition to the trouble and delay in obtaining my glasses, was not even sure that the measurement I came up with was correct. I pay for my eye doctor appointments and the prescriptions that result from them. The prescriptions should contain complete information, including PD measurement, to enable me to obtain eyeglasses from my choice of provider. Please make it a requirement that an accurate PD measurement be included in eyeglass prescriptions to consumers. Thank you for your consideration.
