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. Unfortunately, my doctor didn't provide that on my original prescription, so I had to take a time-consuming trip to a few optical shops before finally obtaining that number. Ultimately, the process took a full week longer than it needed to. It seems strange to me that when I order my contacts, all measurements come with my prescription, but not for my eyeglasses.What can be done to help speed the process and make sure my eye doctor includes this as a matter of course?Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
