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. I was frankly surprised that my ophthalmologist did not provide that on my original prescription, so I had to take a time-consuming trip back to his office before I could obtain that number. It was a considerable effort in terms of time. I have noted that when I order my contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for glasses. As so many internet providers now require this to order glasses on line, I would request the FTC to add this to their prescription requirements.
