16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I am writing in response to Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I have worn glasses for 18 years and for the last 10 years my prescription has changed slightly every few years (maybe 3-4. It doesn't make sense to me to have my prescription re-evaluated annually when it usually ends up being the exact same. I am confident that after 18 years wearing glasses, I can self-determine when I need to get my eyes checked. That being said, I would hope we can look to update the rules regarding eye wear and prescriptions to make it easier to have a prescription filled and/or how often it needs to be updated.
