I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I placed an order for glasses recently but didn't have a copy of my prescription handy; instead, I asked the optical shop to call my doctor and verify my prescription, just like they do for my contacts. But the doctor never called them back. So basically, the doctor is holding my medical information from me and not letting me buy glasses from a place I choose? That doesn't seem right.
