RE:Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996 I live in rural OR, where the local business provides few choices and non-competitive prices to a captive audience. Additionally, I have a 75 mile round-trip to see my optometrist. The internet provides me with competitive pricing; greater choices in style and quality; and most importantly, improved access to getting my glasses (ie, medical instruments) in a timely manner. Please support any rule improvements that increase access to safe, affordable prescription eye ware, such as the requirement to have PDs on all eyeglass prescriptions. Thank you.
