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 through a company called Warby Parker, and wasn't able to do so without my PD. Unfortunately, my doctor didn't provide that on my original prescription, and I attend school in a different state from that in which my doctor resides. I had to take time from school to track down and visit a glasses store that could provide the number for me - completely defeating the purpose of me ordering glasses online in the first place. It seems silly to me that when I order my contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for my eyeglasses. Why is this?
